Nisar for securing shrines rather than shutting them
ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan has directed law enforcement agencies to enhance the security of shrines rather than shutting down them.
He issued these directives in a statement issued on Friday.
Nisar expressed regret over reports about closure of Lal Shahbaz Qalendar shrine due to security concerns following the suicide attack.
“There is no need to hide. We will target the terrorists by giving protection to the people courageously,” he added.
“The people will not be demoralised by shutting of the shrines due to security threats,” he held. He directed that the security of these shrines be stepped up in order to boost the morale of the people so that any unpleasant incident could be averted.
