“Now wherever we go, there is peace. We can go to Gilgit and even to those areas which were once the hub of banned outfits. We can see peace and can roam without any fear,” Malik said, in an interview with APP.
Malik said that Karachi is a densely populated city which makes it difficult to maintain law and order.
He said that Pakistan is not the only country facing extremism.
“Extremism is increasing even in India and there is a need to combat this menace, threatening peace in the world.”
Replying to a question, Malik said that the Taliban have become weak because of the policies adopted by the government, but some banned organisations have grown stronger.
“The threat of Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ) still exists as they have become stronger and if appropriate action is not taken, they would create more problems,” he said while speaking on the Badami Bagh attack.
“Had the Punjab government taken timely action against LeJ the situation in Karachi, Quetta and other parts of the country could have been averted.”
“I have details about the reasons of Badami Bagh incident and I would present them in the court if summoned” he revealed.
