ISLAMABAD: Minister for Information and Broadcasting Pervaiz Rashid has said that no armed group would be allowed to dictate its agenda and disturb peace of the country.
He was addressing a candle light vigil ceremony here at National Broadcasting House on Thursday evening in the memory of martyred and victims of terrorist attack on Peshawar Army Public School.
The Minister that said it was because of the immense sacrifices rendered by our children in Peshawar and people of Pakistan that have united us against terrorism. He said consensus that emerged during meeting of the parliamentary leaders would serve as a journey from darkness to the light.
He said the nation has also resolved that it would not allow formation of armed and militants groups to dictate the nation about its way of life and relations with neighbours.
He said only those institutions authorized by the Constitution have the right and responsibility to possess the gun and use it to defend the country and its people. No other group or militant organization can be given this right.
He said by remembering tragedies like Peshawar, we can learn from the mistakes of the past and reflect how to prevent them in future. It is time for us for self-accountability as to where and why we erred.
He said he finds no words to describe the horror that terrorists inflicted on the nation. They spared neither bazaars nor mosques, defence installations and hospitals. He said with unity and collective wisdom we can prevent recurrence of such tragedies.
