Those that do not shut down within a period of 45 days from now will have to face the new Pakistan’s iron fist. It will then not only be the local cells that will be destroyed and deactivated but steps like Pakistan being forced to sever diplomatic relations with the sponsoring country may also be taken. No consequence can ever be of more significance than the need for Pakistan to preserve its own peace, sovereignty and integrity. Besides, Pakistani blood is no longer going to be allowed to spill on Pakistani streets.
Pakistan knows all about such ongoing activities and as of today we shall observe closely and hope that all offensive and subversive cells being operated through local proxies in various parts of Pakistan through the support of the sponsoring countries will shut down. The ones that shut down will appear on Pakistan’s intelligence radar as having shut down because from this day onwards they are under Pakistan’s intelligence microscope.
Pakistan is no longer going to tolerate its soil being used to shed sacred and valuable Pakistani blood in proxy wars of sorts. To the decision makers of the countries that are utilizing covert efforts to foment religious hatred and violence amongst the various sects of Pakistan I, backed by members of all the sects and religions existing in Pakistan and their public representatives sitting here in this august house, say it loud and clear that such activity must be stopped
Pakistan is, today, a battlefield for proxy wars nurtured by foreign powers in so many different ways. But lets blame ourselves. We let it happen
