RAWALPINDI Politicians, teachers, religious scholars, students and general public, while denouncing the NATO gunship helicopters air strike on Pakistani check-posts in Mohmand Agency martyring 27 security personnel, have demanded of Chief of Army Staff (COAS) to give US/NATO a matching response and the government to pull out from the war on terror besides halting NATO supplies all over the country. They termed the air strike as a direct attack on the sovereignty and integrity of Pakistan saying, Only warnings on the part of Pakistan Army and the government to US and NATO allies will not do work this time rather every US citizen should be kicked out from Pakistani soil. Pakistan should not spare this open violation of its territory this time rather it should raise this matter with NATO allies on highest level, they said. They also demanded compensation for the families of martyred personnel. PML-N senior leader Siddiq-ul-Farooq, while talking to TheNation on Saturday, said, We condemn NATO attack on Pakistani check-posts in severest words. He said that this was the brazen violation of Pakistans territory and sovereignty. He also said that merely writing a note not to be enough rather this issue must be raised at the highest level including NATO allies which guaranteed that in future such action would not be taken. Siddiq was of the view that people of Pakistan were asking question that, was it the return by US and NATO for the countless sacrifices rendered by Pakistan Army Jawans, police and general public in war against terror. Malik Abrar Ahmed, PML-N MNA, condemned the NATO strike and expressed his deep sorrow over the martyrdom of 27 security personnel during the air strike. He said that it was the result of incompetence of the government, which had allowed NATO to play havoc in Mohmand Agency. Now the time has come for the government to choose between Khana Kaaba and White House. If we believe in Khana Kaaba it would give us respect and power while seeing towards White House will destroy Pakistan he added. This is wrong. People should now surround NATO supplies in the ports at Karachi to teach an unforgettable lesson to USA and NATO forces for violating the Pakistani soil, said Awami Muslim League (AML) President Sheikh Rashid Ahmed. Jammat-e-Islami leader Hafiz Sajjad Qamar also termed the NATO air strike as an attack on the integrity and sovereignty of Pakistan. He demanded of the government to part its ways with USA over the war against terror and block NATO supplies at once. Prof Ilyas Qureshi, an educationist and President Punjab Professors and Lecturers Association (PPLA), also strongly condemned the NATO helicopters attack. He termed it an insane and immoral brutality. He said that after happening of every incident whether it was May 2, 2011 US operation against OBL in Abbottabad, drone attacks in tribal belt or NATO air strike on Salala check posts the government and COAS General Ashfaq Pervez Kiyani just relied on issuance of warnings to America that they would take stern action in case of such attacks recur in future. This time it was also done by the government and COAS, said Prof Ilyas asking COAS to take revenge from NATO of this bloodshed. Muhammad Asim, a university student, demanded of the government to suspend all its ties with USA.
