Analysts condemn Pak media for blaming RAW for terror attacks

Islamabad, July 8 (ANI): Political and defence analysts have criticized the attempts made by Pakistani media to sabotage the efforts of the newly elected Nawaz Sharif government to evolve common strategy with India and Afghanistan for fighting terrorism and extremism.

The Nation reports that Pakistani media has been blaming intelligence agencies of India and Afghanistan for their role in terrorism.

Defence analyst Lt-Gen(r) Talat Massod urged Sharif and PTI chief Imran Khan to join hands and foil such attempts, which are ostensibly aimed at undermining efforts of their governments in tackling terrorism.

Former federal minister and political analyst Dr Mubashir Hasan said that had the RAW been involved in spreading terrorism in Pakistan, our intelligence agencies would have been able to unearth the perpetrators.

Hasan said government had failed to arrest the attackers because masses in general were not interested in helping the government. (ANI)
