LAHORE Interior Minister Rehman Malik said on Sunday hidden terrorists in South Punjab had now come in the open with their nefarious designs, and Fridays terrorist attacks in Lahore were a manifestation of their presence in the region. He said foreign students would not be allowed to get admission to any religious school in Pakistan. Talking to the media after visiting Ahmadis Model Town worship place here, Malik said terrorists who carried out two simultaneous attacks in Lahore on Friday belonged to South Punjab and had their roots in Balochistan and FATA. He said out of 1,764 persons associated with the two banned religious outfits, Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and Jaish-e-Muhammad, 726 belonged to South Punjab. The minister said he was not here to confront Punjab government but to seek its cooperation to jointly fight the terrorists. He also appealed to the Punjab Chief Minister to make the inquiry report on Gojra tragedy public. The minister said after successful military operations in Swat and FATA, the government would now focus on South Punjab. To chalk out a strategy in this regard, he added, a meeting of the four chief ministers, home secretaries and IGs would soon be held in Islamabad. He said federal government would soon bring a legislation in the Parliament for protection of minorities rights given to them by the Constitution. He said banned organisations like Lashkar-e-Jhangvi and Jaish-e-Muhammad had links with Al-Qaeda, which carried out terrorist attacks in Punjab after getting training. He said forces working on agenda to destabilise Pakistan had started their activities in the heart of Pakistan (Punjab), after being defeated in Swat and FATA. Terrorists wont be able to demoralise us as government is determined to launch more attacks against the terrorists, he affirmed. The federal minister further said the government would set up a Wafaqul Madaris authority to regulate religious seminaries where a uniform syllabus also including the subjects of English and Mathematics would be taught to students. The minister informed the media that religious schools would not be allowed to give admission to foreign students according to the new regulations. He said out of total 20,000 religious schools, 17,000 had already been registered. According to him, 44 per cent of madaris out of a total of 20,000 were located in South Punjab. Malik also visited Jinnah and Services Hospitals to inquire after the health of persons injured during the Fridays terrorist attacks.
