ISLAMABAD: Strongly condemning the Quetta incident, Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf on Monday said the government would take all out measures to bring the perpetrators to task without making any compromise in this regard.
“It is not time for political divide. It is not time to discriminate between the government and the opposition. We need collective wisdom and action for the nation’s deliverance from the challenges it is facing,” the prime minister said addressing the National Assembly after the house discussed the law and order situation with particular reference to the Quetta killings.
He said the government would fulfil the demands of the Hazara community including the deployment of security forces in the areas, adding that the foremost objective was to protect their lives and properties.
The prime minister apprised the house that he had directed governor Balochistan to probe whether the incident was due to the negligence of any security agency, assuring that action would be taken if proved any.
He said it was an undeniable fact that our society was in the clutches of different forms of terrorism and violence has affected all the provinces and every section of society.
