Terrorism on the rise but situation is under control: Interior Minister


ISLAMABAD: While the increase in terrorist attacks is concerning, according to Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah, it won’t spiral out of hand. It’s not concerning. Don’t assume that this is out of hand or that one group would be inaccessible, he remarked in response to a question from the audience at an Islamabad news conference.

Concerns regarding proscribed Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP)

The minister also expressed concern about the proscribed Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claiming responsibility for the suicide bombing that took place in Quetta yesterday and left four people dead, including a police officer. It was “alarming and condemnable,” he added, adding that the TTP’s actions represented a threat to regional stability and should also worry Afghanistan’s neighbor. The TTP claimed credit for the incident.

Sanaullah criticized Mahmood Khan, the chief minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, for missing a recent security meeting presided over by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif.

Specifically mentioning KP and Balochistan, he recognized the necessity for provincial governments, security organizations, and authorities to handle the issue of increasing militancy in an efficient way.”They must treat this situation seriously, and we will aid them as soon as they ask for assistance from the federal government and its authorities.

Sanaullah says that the government is unafraid of the results of the elections

The minister criticized Imran Khan, the leader of the PTI, during the news conference for “attempting to sow disorder and confusion” in the nation and for continually driving the nation toward uncertainty. After the PTI’s lengthy march “failed,” according to Sanaullah, Imran should have conceded defeat, apologized to the country, and returned to parliament.
