LAHORE - Acting Governor Gilgit-Baltistan and Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Qamar Zaman Kaira said on Sunday that there was no difference of opinion between the Presidency and General Headquarters (GHQ) as both President Asif Ali Zardari and COAS Gen Ashfaq Pervez Kayani were committed to curb the menace of terrorism. We should be proud of our brave Army, he said, adding that some non-state actors were creating and spreading speculations regarding differences between the Presidency and GHQ. All the state institutions were united on each issue, he maintained. Addressing 'Women in Media Conference at a local hotel, Kaira said terrorists would be pursued in every nook and corner of the country, adding that operation against them was not against a territory or an area but we have been fighting against specific individuals who were involved in nefarious activities and intended to destabilise Pakistan. Soon we are going to launch operation in (South) Waziristan against such non-state elements and specific mindset as all preparations for this purpose have been completed, he added. Strongly dispelling the impression that the GHQ incident was a security lapse, he said it was beyond the reason to think that some ex-servicemen were involved in the attack. Wearing military uniform did not mean that the assailants belonged to the army, he added. Kaira said as the monster of terrorism was the bitter enemy of whole world, the government of Pakistan was fighting the war for peace on this planet. To a query regarding suicide bomb attack targeting the Indian Embassy in Kabul, he said, We should stop the blame game and hostility and acknowledge the fact that stabilised Iran, Afghanistan and India were essential for stable Pakistan. We should focus on bilateral issues by increasing regional cooperation, he added. Commenting on the opposition to the Kerry-Lugar Bill, the Minister said difference of opinion was the beauty of democracy. There was no compulsion on people to have the same opinion, he added. The Parliament was the right forum for debate and evolving consensus on the said bill, he said. Replying to a question asked by an Indian journalist regarding Mumbai attacks, he said, Our courts are free to decide the ultimate fate of the terrorists involved in the attacks. Answering a question about Federally-Administered Tribal Areas, Kaira said Fata was already enjoying complete autonomy but the situation in Gilgit-Baltistan was quite different because people there had faced deprivation for years. We are also standing firmly on all the UN resolutions on Kashmir and will not make any compromise on the issue, Kaira added. When asked about reports of Punjab Chief Minister and PML-N President Shahbaz Sharifs meeting with Chief of Army Staff Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani, Kaira said Shahbaz himself was the right man to make any comment in this regard. He also said the PML-N was a democratic party, and it should not be afraid of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) if the latter had started political activities in Punjab. We welcome the MQM in Punjab and in Baltistan. It has decided to participate in upcoming elections in Gilgit-Baltistan, he added. Addressing the conference, former federal minister for information and broadcasting Sherry Rehman stated, We have better security arrangements than the US to protect our nuclear assets. She said women were powerful in many media organisations and other departments as well. They were leaders with sound opinion and had their firm point of view on each issue, including militancy and terrorism, she added. Sherry urged the elected government to intensify steps for the betterment of women in each sector besides providing them the best opportunities in every field.
