Malik rules out talks with Taliban
KARACHI: Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik ruled out talks with Taliban and asked the misguided youth to adopt the right course.
The interior minister accompanied by Sindh Governor Dr Ishratul Ebad today visited Jamia Amjadia where he had a detailed meeting with a delegation of Ahle-Sunnat’s ulema. The delegation comprised of Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman, Allama Shah Turab Qadri, Haji Hanif Tayyab, Tariq Mahboob and Shahid Ghauri.
Following the meeting, Malik said Ulema from all schools of thought had a consensus that suicide attacks and terrorism were un-Islamic.
When directed his attention toward inclusion of Sunni Tehrik’s name in the watch list of interior ministry, he said that he was unaware about this and would discuss the matter with the leadership of Sunni Tehrik (ST).
