ISLAMABAD, Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed on Monday expressed the resolve of his government to root out extremism and terrorism from every nook and corner of the country.

He appreciated the role of law enforcement agencies in sacrificing their lives to ensure the safety of the masses.
Rashid said Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) was being reorganized from Afghanistan to launch terrorist activities in Pakistan.
He noted that there were security threats in Rawalpindi, Islamabad, and Karachi, but Pakistani security agencies were on high alert and ready to thwart any possible terrorist attempt.
The Minister said five terrorists were killed yesterday (March 7) by the Armed forces and they were striving hard to eliminate terrorism from the country.
The families of martyred cops were being given compensation money, besides welfare package, said the Minister.
He also condemned the opposition’s unpleasant incident that took place outside the Parliament House on March 6, the day of the vote of confidence for Prime Minister Imran Khan.
