Blames Centre for not puting on watch list Madaris recommended by Sindh
Sindh Chief Minister Syed Murad Ali Shah says that terrorists enter Sindh province from Balochistan and carry out their activities.
Talking to a 29-member delegation of Foreign Service Academy here on Wednesday, the chief minister said the provincial government has made special security arrangements with the support of Punjab government on their common border to prevent movement of anti state elements.
Murad Ali Shah regretted that the federal government was not ready to place certain Madaris on watch list despite provision of proof for their involvement in acts of terrorism in Sindh.
He disclosed that list of 96 Madaris was given to the federal government after a lot of hard work and investigation.
He spoke of suspicious activities going on in these Madaris and terrorists were being extended facilities from there.
He said there were prohibited areas in the city, sectarianism was on the rise and armed terrorists had entered the political and religious parties.
He said the provincial government with the cooperation of the citizens confronted these challenges and made the Karachi operation successful.
The Chief Minister pointed out that there was Dacoits Raj in Sindh in 1980 and it was difficult to travel in the interior without police escord.
He said the situation is much better today. He said the challenge before the government is to ensure the continuation of peace in Karachi.
Murad Ali Shah claimed that they have improved the governance, introduced reforms in police and reconstruction activities are continuing in Karachi.
