Allegedly, the shutdown of mobile services has mostly proven successful to overcome terrorism in Pakistan. Malik often takes such measures to ensure security. Reportedly, he has announced to jam all mobile phone services from 12 noon to 3 pm. In addition, security will be high alert while police patrolling will keep a close eye around religious institutions.
Moreover, Malik has called for a security meeting aimed at discussing the increased security threats in Pakistan. He is anticipating digging out long-term solutions to the problem. According to a senior officer of the Ministry of Interior, the meeting is likely to be held on February 4.
Interior Minister Rehman Malik has been speaking about possible terrorist threats in Karachi during the first week of February. His statements were often received with criticism from his own ruling party-Pakistan People’s Party (PPP). Malik’s methods of overcoming terrorism are often censured.
Later, Malik also committed to soon releasing 27 Indian fishermen.
