ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Ahsan Iqbal has said that a compensation package will be announced for the heirs of those killed in yesterday’s terror attack at Jhal Magsi in Balochistan.  

Speaking in the National Assembly on Friday, he strongly denounced the terror attack.

The Interior Minister said foreign funded elements are targeting soft targets in the country to create an environment of fear and panic amongst people.

He said Pakistan is committed to fighting against terrorism and Jhal Magsi like cowardly incidents cannot shake our resolve.

Ahsan Iqbal urged religious scholars to come forward to address the issue of hate speech and promotion of sectarian harmony.
