KARACHI: PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Saturday questioned Pakistan’s counter-terrorism strategy after Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif equated opposition protesters with terrorists.

Addressing a gathering in Sukkur yesterday, Prime Minister Sharif said that those doing politics of sit-ins and terrorists have matching agenda.

“Terrorists want to block our path to progress and prosperity and those staging sit-ins are doing the same. My question to you is what’s the difference between the two?” he said.

The comments drew sharp condemnations from opposition parties and media commentators.

“If our PM can’t tell difference between opposition protestors & terrorists are we surprised we’ve no effective counter terrorism strategy?,” Bilawal said in a Twitter post.

Yesterday, PTI Chairman Imran Khan and opposition leader Syed Khursheed Shah also condemned the prime minister’s remarks for drawing a parallel between political protests and terrorism.
