Islamabad: Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif has directed that lacunas in the anti terrorism laws must be removed to ensure that culprits involved in heinous terrorist activities are fairly punished.
The Prime Minister said this while chairing a meeting on Anti-Terrorism Legislation at PM’s House on Thursday.
“There should be no gap and loophole in the anti terrorism laws which allow the terrorists to get away with dreadful crimes.
We need strong, transparent but stringent laws to cope with the menace of terrorism. The required amendments must be finalized as soon as possible”, said the Prime Minister.
The Prime Minister underlined the need of amending the existing laws so that people involved in brutal and inhuman activities are bought to book and penalized under the laws of the land.
The meeting was also attended by Ch. Nisar Ali Khan, Minister for Interior, Mr. Parvez Rasheed, Minister for Information, Broadcasting & National Heritage, Mr. Zahid Hamid, Minister for Science & Technology and senior officials of the PM’s office.
