He said that some facilitators of terrorists are present in some of the areas of Karachi. He said some foreign made weapons and Indian medicines are also recovered from the terrorists.
KHURRUM DASTGIR KHAN OF PML-N said that our soldiers fought with great courage against the terrorists at Karachi airport which is commendable. He said that the government is unable to coordinate the intelligence sys tem so far some agencies are offering resistance in this regard. He said that the terrorists are gathering cash for their motive through bank robberies and kidnapping for ransom in Karachi. He said that the government tried to resolve the problems through dialogues with Taliban but failed. He said that now it is very clear that the fight is not for Islam but for the extremism. He said that the terrorists are being funded by foreign countries and the government is working to curtail it. He said that some of our Madrassas are involved in terrorism.
SHAFQAT MAHMOOD OF PTI said that the courage shown by our soldiers is commendable but attack on airport is a matter of great concern. He said the TTP group that attacked on airport can not be offered dialogue instead it should be crushed severely. He said that only those groups of Taliban can be offered dialogues that are willing for peace. He said that one good out come of engaging Taliban in dialogues is that some of the groups have distant themselves from terrorists.
He said that he does not doubt the will of the government but capability is questionable it takes too long to react.
QAMAR ZAMAN KAIRA OF PPPP said that the terrorists had the planning to drag the things at Karachi airport but our soldiers failed their intentions. He said that the government attitude to stay inactive and doing nothing is a big problem. He said that four months after APC the government could not start the dialogues process with Taliban. He said that instead of Khurrum Dastgir interior minister Ch Nisar should announce the status of the dialogues with Taliban. He said that many banned outfits are part of PML-N and their ministers are helping them. He said that some Islamic countries are fighting their proxy war inside Pakistan. He said that the government should explain that what measures it has taken to curtail terrorism and stop foreign funding to terrorists in last one year in the country.
