Cabinet passes unanimously resolution condemning Peshawar suicide attack
In the wake of the heinous terror attack in Peshawar that claimed 101 lives and left over 200 injured, the federal government resolved on Wednesday to restructure the police force in frontline state Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and equip it to tackle the terrorism menace.
This was decided at a federal cabinet meeting that Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif called on Wednesday in Islamabad to talk about what he called the greatest threat to national security.
A resolution condemning the suicide attack in a mosque in Peshawar’s Police Lines was unanimously adopted during the meeting.
The cabinet also emphasized the importance of fostering national unity, solidarity, and a united national voice against terrorists from all political forces.
To ensure that the requirements of national security, solidarity, peace, and the economy could be protected in an effective manner, it urged all political forces to shun their political divides and grievances, express unity for the interests of the country and its people, and unanimously converge on an agenda for the elimination of terrorism.
An official meeting statement read, “The entire nation shares the grief of the bereaved families.”
In addition, the federal cabinet made it abundantly clear that those individuals could not be Muslims who deserved to be referred to as human beings or who targeted fellow Muslims at places of worship.
The cabinet stated that such incidents were openly against the tenets of Islam and “Haram” (prohibited by divine edict) prior to the teachings of the Holy Quran and Sunnah and the unanimous opinion of learned religious scholars derived from these teachings and declared in “Paigham-e-Pakistan”
KP Police reorganization The forum decided to reorganize the provincial police force after the prime minister questioned the four-year investment of Rs417 billion in upgrading and retraining the force.
The police department’s counterterrorism unit would also be reorganized.
In addition to providing staff with high-quality training, the force will be provided with cutting-edge weapons and the necessary tools to combat terrorists.
In addition, the prime minister thanked the Chinese president and premier for their support of Pakistan.
Imran’s claims about Zardari The federal cabinet also said that the claims about a murder conspiracy between former prime minister Imran Khan and former president and PPP co-chairman Asif Ali Zardari were signs of a sick mind.
Resolutions against Imran Khan’s statement about Zardari were passed by the cabinet.
The countrywide solarization project would save foreign exchange by reducing the import of costly fuel, so the prime minister ordered the relevant authorities to complete the solarization of government buildings within a specified time frame in an effort to reduce power costs and consumption.
In addition to directing the finalization of a policy to promote the local production of solar panels and electric motorcycles, the prime minister also presided over a meeting to review the measures for conserving energy.
In addition, the cabinet prayed for the shuhada’s upper ranks and their families to persevere through the losses. Additionally, it prayed for the injured’s prompt recovery.
