Lahore, Jan 5 (ANI): Awami Muslim League chief Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed has said if any individual belonging to any country is involved in acts of terrorism than that does not make the country a terrorist state.

Commenting on the Mumbai terror attacks, he said, If a citizen of any country is involved in terrorism, it does not imply that his or her country is a terrorist state.

Rasheed also wants various factions of the Pakistan Muslim League to unite, but says that PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif stands as the biggest hurdle in the way.

Addressing a press conference in Lahore, Rasheed said there is no power crisis in the country, as it is only a stunt of the present government.

He said he had asked President Asif Ali Zardari to provide maximum relief to the people.

He also lamented that politicians have not learnt any lesson from history a reference to the conflict between the PML-N and the ruling party, the Pakistan Peoples Party.

The Daily Times quoted Rasheed as saying that mid-term elections could hurt the country if held. (ANI)
