Digital Desk, New Delhi. Pakistan’s Information and Broadcasting Minister Fawad Chaudhry said that the main reason behind militancy is not madrassas but schools and colleges. This information was given in the report of Geo News. The Information Minister said, in the 90s, teachers were appointed to propagate extremism. Choudhary said the state and the government were not fully prepared to deal with the insurgency and had to take a step back while dealing with the Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan (TLP).
The minister said that there is no threat to the country from America or Europe, but the biggest threat is from within. The Geo News report said that Chaudhry lamented that the threat of extremism is one that can isolate and destroy a country, and that Pakistan, unfortunately, has been pushed towards it by political and foreign policy reasons. . He said that in the event of a civil war, state control would continue to dwindle and groups would take it over. Choudhary said that in order to root out extremism, the story around it has to be changed.
He said that extremist approach is not an issue as people can have different views and no one can stop a person from thinking this way. But, such a person cannot be allowed to attack the government with Kalashnikov, having a different point of view and imposing it on others are two different things.
