ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan Tuesday said that militant organizations were building their profile using Daesh’s name.

Speaking at a press conference, he said Daesh is an Arab world phenomenon which has extended to North Africa.

“My statement about Daesh was presented wrongly,” he said, adding that some militant organizations in Pakistan were using name of Daesh.

When asked to comment on Intelligence Bureau chief’s remarks about Daesh presence, he said: “I just talked to IB chief. He says a small Daesh linked group has been busted but there is nothing to worry about.”

The minister said security agencies confirmed that there is no presence of Daesh in Pakistan. “We should not indulge in a debate if Daesh has presence or not,” he said.

He also took exception to Pakistan People’s Party and members of civil society over the issue of Lal Masjid cleric Maulana Abdul Aziz.

“PPP government provided him with security guards, and allowed him to deliver Friday sermons in the mosque,” he said.

The interior minister said he prevented the cleric from delivering sermons at the mosque.

“I only asked for evidence against Maulana Aziz. I never said he has no FIRs registered against him. Just like members of PPP and so-called civil society, the Maulana too is a Pakistani citizen and has some rights,” he said.

The minister said he gives his critics taste of their own medicine, but he did not respond to Aitzaz Ahsan’s criticism in the past because Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif asked him to move on.

Replying to another question, he said Pakistan would approach India to send special investigation team to visit Pathankot.
