ISLAMABAD: Minister of State for Interior Sheheryar Khan Afridi on Thursday said that
State will take strict action against the unruly elements, who challenged
its writ and were involved in breaching the law.
Giving a policy statement in the Senate about handling the recent
protests, he said that data of those involved in riots have been collected
through coordination among NADRA, PTA and other law enforcement
agencies.
He said :“A proper legal framework has been worked out and arrests
are being made after complete homework.”
The minister that visual footages of those involved in riots, have been
monitored and assessed along with a team of Tehreek-e-Labaik and thorough
investigation is underway against unruly elements for damaging public and
private property.
There have been reports about involvement of some political
workers in these incidents and those taking law into hands would be
made an example, he added.
He said that people elect their leadership and thus it eventually becomes
its responsibility to protect their rights. The minister said that government dealt
the protests without use of force and by taking into confidence the leadership of
political parties.
“ In Naya Pakistan, we cannot use force against those surrendering before
the law. We would engage them to remove their reservations,” he added.
He said that an agreement was reached with Tehreek-e-Labaik
keeping in view all the legal aspects. He said that it was the right of the aggrieved
party to submit review petition after court’s verdict while it was agreed to
look into the matter of putting name of Asia Bibi in Exit Control List.
He pointed out specific flaws in criminal justice system and said
that it was unfortunate that those talking about national security at
present, did nothing in their tenures to remove lacunae in the law.
He urged the parliamentarians to demonstrate responsible
attitude during debate on security-related mattes. “A line should be
drawn for all Parliamentarians including us in debating sensitive issues
because we can not afford anything against the country,” he
concluded.Minister of State for Interior Sheheryar Khan Afridi on Thursday said that
