ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed has said that cooperation of religious scholars has been sought to amicably settle the matter of burial of victims of the Machh terror incident.
Addressing a news conference on Friday, the interior minister said that Prime Minister Imran Khan will visit Quetta as soon as the matter of burial is settled.
Rashid said that the reason the Premier is waiting for the burials is that he could sit down with the community and speak to them in detail. The minister said that the Premier supports the Hazara community completely and if the funeral rites are completed by that day then the Premier will visit the community on the same day.
He added that the speeches made by Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Vice-President Maryam Nawaz were strictly political.- TLTP
