â€œThe terrorists, being deprived of their refuges and training centers, have now resorted to targeting soft targets such as parks and schools.â€
Remember that more than 73 people dead in the terrible bomb blast including 29 children and 233 were wounded near Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park, Allama Iqbal Town in Lahore on Sunday.
The prime minister also said that armed forces of the country, police and the civil institutions sacrificed their lives under the Operation Zarb-e-Azb to uproot terrorism.
While many objectives under this operation have been achieved, efforts have continued to eradicate the menace completely, he added.
He said the government, since taking oath in June 2013, had vowed to eliminate terrorism and faced the fact that no one had confronted the menace for the last 13 years.
Prime Minister also criticesed to the protests in Islamabad by pro-Mumtaz Qadri demonstrators, the PM said Islam was a religion of peace, and did not teach to cause damage to lives or property.
â€œGovernmentâ€™s leniency in this regard should not be taken as the stateâ€™s weakness or vulnerability of security forces,â€ the PM said, adding that protecting lives and property of the masses was the governmentâ€™s responsibility.
â€œBy far, the government remained patient so the elements trying to provoke peopleâ€™s religious sentiments may not succeed.â€
He added,Â â€But let me make it clear that provoking anger, those fomenting the fire of hate and inciting sectarianism and creating difficulties for the masses will be brought before justice at all costs.â€
