Patna: Condemning the terrorist attack at Bacha Khan University in Charsada, Minister of States for Skill Development Rajiv Partap Rudy on Wednesday said there is a need to start an international drive against terrorists active in Pakistan, adding that it could only be possible only with the support of the government in Islamabad.
"We know that the world's most wanted terrorist Osama bin laden was hiding in Pakistan for over a decade and it would be wrong to consider that the Pakistan Government was not aware about it. Pakistan will have to fight terrorism," he added.
He said terrorism is an international challenge and the entire world is grappling with it.
In Pakistan, heavily-armed terrorists today stormed the university in Pakistan's restive northwest Khyber- Pakhtunkhwa province and opened indiscriminate fire on students and teachers.
At least 21 people have been killed and over 30 others injured in the attack.
Over 3,000 students were present inside the university to mark the death anniversary of Khudai Khidmatgar Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan alias Baacha Khan, who died on January 20, 1988.
The Tehrik-e Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has claimed responsibility for the attack.
