Foreign involvement in Karachi violence: Imran Khan
Islamabad: Blaming foreign hands for the ghastly suicide attack on a Muharram procession in Karachi, in which over 40 people were killed, Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaaf chief Imran Khan has asked the government to put in place a home-grown anti-terrorism policy rather than following the strategies of foreign countries.
“The Karachi incident is a conspiracy to start sectarian violence. The government’s current policy to deal with terrorism has failed.Terrorism has now spread across the country,” The Dawn quoted Khan, as saying.
He criticised the government, saying it has failed miserably to protect the citizens of the country.
“It is the government’s duty to provide security to the citizens. The administration has failed to do so in Karachi where a large number of shops were burnt, causing losses worth billions of rupees,” the cricketer-turned politician said.
He reiterated his demands for conducting mid-term elections in the country.
Khan further added that the Taliban have contacted him, but said he will not hold any discussion with the banned terror outfit without the government’s consent.
