ISLAMABAD: Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik said on Friday that the outlawed outfit Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ) was involved in 80 per cent of terrorism incidents in Pakistan, DawnNews reported.
During an informal talk with media persons the federal interior minister said that all information regarding the LeJ was provided to the Punjab government and that the Punjab government should tell why it had not taken any action against the banned organisation.
He further expressed hope that the Punjab government would now act against the proscribed militant organisation.
Malik added that the media would soon be informed about the apprehended members of the LeJ.
When questioned about the All Parties Conference (APC) convened by the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) a day earlier, the interior minister termed it as a positive step. Agencies
