Pakistani minister admits govt's involvement with terrorists
Islamabad: In a startling statement, a senior Pakistani minister from Punjab province on Wednesday said the state government could never take legal actions against terror outfits like Jamaat-ud-Dawah and Jaish-e-Mohammad as it remained involved with them.
“How can one prosecute a group that has the government’s support,” said the minister.
India accuses Pakistan of patronising terror groups that carried out attacks in the country. Pakistan, however, denies the charge calling them ‘non-state actors’ who are not controlled by it.
The admission by Sanaullah about Pakistani state’s past ties with terrorists may increase international pressure on the country to act against all militants groups.
