What did the minister say after Peshawar Attack?
On Monday about 1 pm, an explosion happened in the mosque’s main hall. The minister said it was time for Pakistan to “put its house in order,” calling for cooperation in the battle against terrorism. In the national assembly, Asif said, “Worshippers weren’t killed during prayers even in India or Israel but it happened in Pakistan.”
He also continued further by saying, “This war started from Swat during the PPP’s tenure and it was concluded during the PML-N’s previous tenure, and peace was established in the country from Karachi to Swat.” He added, “But if you remember, a year-and-a-half or two years ago […] we were given a briefing two, three times in this same hall in which it was clearly stated that talks could be carried out against these people and they can be brought toward peace.”
Asif also claimed the first evidence emerged when the Swat residents opposed the relocated refugees, claiming that thousands of people were left without work as a result of the Afghans’ immigration to Pakistan. India, meanwhile, expressed its condolences for the victims of the tragic mosque attack on Tuesday.

Pakistan gave services on rent: Minister Asif
He pointed out that the Wana people had also protested and shown the same feelings. “I am mentioning these incidents because of the tragedy that occurred yesterday […] the terrorist was standing in the frontline during Zuhr prayers where he detonated himself.”
According to him, Pakistan provided its services to the US “on rent” when Russia attacked Afghanistan. “General Zia was the ruler at the time […] the agreement made with the US went on for eight to nine years after which the US went back to Washington celebrating the fact that Russia was defeated.”
