Peshawar, July 28 2013 (PPI-OT): The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Governor Engineer Shaukatullah Khan has said that terrorists were making different pretexts just for the killings of the poor people particularly in tribal areas and we must take benefit of our rich traditions to foil their nefarious designs.
Talking to a delegation of the elders of Islamabad based residents of Khurram Agency Saturday he pointed out that if the killing of innocent people of Kurram Agency is attributed to sectarianism then what about other agencies of FATA like Bajaur where too the terrorists were playing with the lives of the masses and not only there but they, the terrorism strikes everywhere from FATA to Karachi with different pretexts.
The Governor on this occasion led fatiha khwani for the alleviation of the statuses of those martyred in the incident and early recovery of the injured. He assured the delegation that every possible help on the part of the government will be extended to the injured for their treatment. On the request of the members of the delegation, the Governor directed the authorities concerned to ensure early payment of compensation/financial assistance to the affected/bereaved families.
The Governor also directed the authorities concerned to make pool proof security arrangements in the Agency for the closing ten days particularly the observance of last Friday of Ramadhan which is also observed as ‘yaum-i-al-Qudus’.
On the proposal of the members of the delegation, the Governor further directed the political administration of the Agency to review the local peace and security committees as the local people could easily recognize the entry of aliens into their respective areas and thus can help foil the plots of the terrorists.
