ISLAMABAD: Federal Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Wednesday Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan said glorification of terrorists on the media will be totally banned, and if a law required for it, could be made. He told the governments of Sindh, KP and Balochistan that army troops stationed to assist security forces would be withdrawn from the provinces if requisitions were not made for deployment, under Article 245 of the Constitution.
Nisar was addressing a meeting of parliamentary leaders held at the Prime Minister House under the chairmanship of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. The meeting was aimed at building a national action plan to counter terrorism and extremism in the country. “After the initiation of Zarb-i-Azb, the government realised that the police is neither equipped nor trained and would require time to tackle the current law and order crisis,” Nisar said. The federal interior minister further added “In order to deal with the reaction of the operation, the army chief has told the government that the military was willing to help and support the federal and provincial administrations but for that the requisition of the army needs to be made under Article 245 of the Constitution.” INP
