NOWSHERA, Feb 18: The Defa-i-Pakistan Council (DPC) has claimed that foreign hands are involved in sectarian attacks aimed at destabilising Pakistan.
“The country is passing through a critical time and foreign hands are involved in different incidents especially in Balochistan,” observed the DPC chairman and chief of his own faction of JUI Maulana Samiul Haq, while talking to reporters at Darul Ulum Haqqania, Akora Khattak, on Monday.
He said the PPP-led coalition government had failed to resolve Balochistan problem and control target killings in Karachi. He expressed concern over the killing of Hazara people in Quetta and asked the government to announce immediate compensation to the families of the victims of the blast.
