Dubai, Mar 6 (UNI) Pakistani expatriates in the UAE have expressed concern over repeated terrorist attacks in the home country and demanded all-out efforts to curb violence.
Demanding a clear combat strategy, community members yesterday asked the government, politicians, and the people to make concerted efforts.
More than a hundred people have lost their lives and many others have been injured in the recent suicide attacks Swat, Dera Adam Khail, Rawalpindi and Lahore.
Pakistani politicians are lost in a power tussle after the general elections and merely paying lip service to the cause of fight against terrorism, Pakistani expatriate Altaf Ahmed said, adding, ''The majority parties should immediately form a government and evolve an effective strategy to free the country from the clutches of the terrorists.'' It was important to first restore peace in Pakistan and then decide on the future of President Pervez Musharraf, the chief justice, and other similar issues, the Gulf news quoted the view of Non Resident Pakistanis in the Emirate.
Another expatriate Karamat Ilahi said religious fanaticism and foreign interests have been playing havoc with the country. ''It is a serious issue that has put the national stability and survival on stake, but still the leaders are not considering it a top priority,'' he said.
