KHANEWAL: Federal Interior Minister, Rehman Malik said that two groups of the Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ) working under Malik Ishaq and Maulana Ludhianvi were operating in Pakistan.
Speaking to the media here, Malik added that all provinces need to take action against terrorism and if the Punjab government had acted on letters sent by him pertaining to the LeJ, a tragedy such as the one on Kirani road in Quetta would not have taken place. Mallik told reporters that after the 18th amendment, law and order was the responsibility of the provincial governments.
The interior minister added that information regarding an attack on the Hazara community had been given four days earlier, questioning whose fault it was if the attack could not be stopped.
