Nawaz govt unable to form viable counter-terrorism policy: Imran Khan
Islamabad: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan has said the government seems unable to form a viable and holistic counter-terrorism policy.
He said that a comprehensive policy was needed that could identify the different types of terrorism impacting Pakistan and the measures needed to counter it, the Express Tribune reports.
He said that the ill-trained and ill-equipped police forces were suffering as policy to counter terrorism was formed.
According to the report, he said that Pakistan needed to separate itself from the US War on Terror, as it allowed the militants to misuse the narrative of Jihad against Pakistani security forces.
He said that Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa could not bear the cost of having no counter- terrorism policy any longer.
Khan added that PTI is formulating a strategy to protest the continued participation of Pakistan in the War on Terror, the report added.
