Lashkar-e-Jhangvi has safe havens in Punjab
2013-02-24
ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Rehman Malik on Saturday said Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ) had safe havens in Punjab.

The Punjab government should take action against the criminals of the banned outfit, he told reporters at a ceremony at Police Lines.
Hunt down terrorists? What a great idea! Mr. Minister, sir, how do you do it?
The interior minister said Pakistan will soon request the Interpol for repatriation of Tehrik-e-Taliban commander Maulvi Faqir from Afghanistan. Maulvi Faqir was arrested by the Afghan forces from border area a few days ago.
I'm sure Karzi will just hand him right back to you. You can then stash Maulvi in the Abbottabad Hilton until it's safe for him to go back to the Frontier...
Malik said that Maulvi Faqir was involved in a series of terror attacks in the country. “We want his deportation to Pakistan so that action can be initiated against him in accordance with the law,” he added.

Replying to a question about Taliban’s dialogue offer, Malik said first they (Taliban) should demonstrate seriousness for talks by surrendering their arms.
His staff continued to laugh at the minister's joke long after the press conference was over...
