No room for proscribed organisations in country: Ch Nisar

RAWALPINDI: Interior Minister Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan has said that there is no room for proscribed organisations in the country.

Talking to the media persons at Kalar Syedan in Rawalpindi on Saturday, he said that either the elements of these outfits are eliminated in the operation or their cases were before the courts.

He regretted the criticism made on his statement regarding the sectarian outfits. He said his statement in the Senate was on the record and maintained that there was a difference between the organizations proscribed on sectarian lines and the terrorist outfits. He said there was a need to enact separate laws to deal with outfits proscribed on sectarian lines.

Responding to a question about the extension of military courts, the interior minister said the government and the opposition parties have held a meeting on the matter.  “The aim is to establish such a system, which ensures speedy trial of the terrorists,” he added.

To a question about the missing persons, the interior minister said that they were making effort to recover the missing person at the earliest.

Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan said due to the steps of the present government, four hundred and fifty thousand fake identity cards were blocked. He, however, said those found according to the law will be unblocked soon. He said about thirty two thousand and four hundred passport of aliens were also blocked during the period. He said this campaign against aliens and fake identity card holders will be taken to logical conclusion.

When asked about the committee constituted to investigate the ‘Dawn leak’, the interior minister said the committee headed by a retired judge had almost finalized its report. He added that the committee would furnish its report to the government in the next few days.
