Karachi, Apr 6 (ANI): Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid Ahmad has said that as many as 300 suicide attackers are present in Pakistan and if they are not controlled, large-scale disaster may hit the country.

Talking to the media at the Jinnah International Airport, he said Pakistan was in the grip of suicide attacks and the whole nation would have to rise against them.

Condemning the suicide attack at an Imambargah in Chakwal, Rashid said the country was going through a critical phase, the Daily Times reported.

Decisions were being taken on the roads rather than by parliament and some decisions were being made at gunpoint, he remarked.

The Provisional Constitutional Order (PCO) judges were there before the suspension of the Punjab Government and they are there after its restoration as well, Rashid added.

He demanded Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United States (US) should be called back for not arguing the case of the country in an effective way.

The US could not succeed in Afghanistan without the help of Pakistani forces and agencies, Rashid underlined.

He stressed the political parties should bring back the money their leadership had stashed in offshore accounts.

Replying to a question, Rashid said the reinstatement of the judges had been decided on March 13. (ANI)
