ISLAMABAD: Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan, strongly condemned the Peshawar blast of Sunday and assured the nation, especially the people of Khyber Pukhtunkhwa (KP), that the culprits will be punished. Nothing justifies the killing of innocent people including women and children and this is against Islam, he said.
In a statement issued on Sunday Imran Khan has said that it is unfortunate that some parties are again using this tragedy for political point scoring when all political forces should be together to bring peace to Pakistan, Khan said.
Imran Khan said he had demanded of the PTI coalition government to move on an emergency basis to bolster the Provincial security and intelligence set ups.
Khyber Pukhtunkhwa is being deliberately targeted by those forces who do not want to see peace and stability restored in Pakistan, Khan added.
He said criminals involved in the terrorism cannot escape from punishment. He said no religion allows to target innocent lives particularly children and women and termed it against the teachings of Islam.
