Haqqani network has no presence in Pak, claims JI chief
Islamabad: Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) chief Syed Munawar Hassan has claimed that the Al-Qaeda linked Haqqani network has no presence in Pakistan.
"It (Haqqani network) is based in Afghanistan and the United States should encounter it there," The Dawn quoted Hassan, as saying.
Hassan said more than 350 drone strikes had been carried out so far in the tribal areas, and asked the authorities to stop military operation in those areas as innocent citizens were being killed in the action.
Hassan said the U.S. and NATO forces were facing a "historical defeat". Hatred against America, according to him, was spreading in the entire world.
"That is why now some elements in America and the west are making sacrilegious films and cartoons to defame Muslims," he said.
He also said the government should expel the U.S. ambassador from Pakistan.
