ISLAMABAD - Interior Minister Rehman Malik Sunday announced that a Peace Tower would be built in memory of those martyrs who sacrificed their lives in fight against extremism and terrorism. I salute Pakistan Army and other law-enforcement agencies for their important role in restoring peace in Swat and Malakand division, the Minister said while addressing a peace rally arranged by state-run television channel in collaboration with a non-governmental organisation, United for Peace. Malik led the rally that started from China Chowk and culminated in front of the Parliament House. A smartly turned out police band played thrilling tunes of national songs throughout the peace walk, which was attended by a large number of boy scouts, girl guides, media persons, police personnel and representatives of civil society. The participants of the rally were carrying national flags, placards inscribed with slogans I stand for peace. We want peace. Malik said that a committee had been constituted to chalk out a plan for building a 'Peace Minar. He said that the peace walk had sent a strong message abroad that Pakistanis were united and would not allow any extremist and terrorist activity on their soil. He said Islam was a religion of peace, tolerance, brotherhood and harmony and does not allow anybody to kill innocent people by carrying out subversive activities. Malik said the nation had only two options; either to hand over Pakistan to terrorists or fight against them. We opted to fight against terrorists and by the grace of Allah Almighty we have been successful, he added. Appreciating the role of Pakistan Army and law enforcement agencies, he said terrorists had been flushed out from Swat and Malakand division and peace was being restored in those areas at a rapid pace. He also highlighted the importance of peace for progress and prosperity of the country. He advised the foreign terrorists to leave the country themselves, otherwise they would be thrown out of it.
