ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif on Monday said that Pakistanis cannot bear anything said against the homeland, and that those speaking against Pakistan cannot be forgiven.
“Pakistan is our home and we know how to safeguard the sanctity of our house,” said the premier in response to controversial statements made by the London-based leadership of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM).
He promised the culprits would be accountable for every single word spoken against the country.
PM Nawaz said the inflammatory statements made in Karachi through a telephonic call from London hurt the sentiments of every Pakistan including him.
“We would not let anyone harm national security and prestige,” he added.
The prime minister further said that we all rose from this soil and would also end up in it, adding, “It is a must for us to safeguard the dignity of the country along with its territory”.
Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said that those responsible must be arrested as soon as possible. He said that adequate security must be provided to journalists in Karachi.
