Reports of IS working in Pakistan are not correct: FO



ISLAMABAD: During a media briefing, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that they were not aware of Pakistani nationals working in association with the Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi led militant movement, Islamic State (IS), in Iraq.

“Reports about IS in Pakistan’s tribal areas are not correct and Pakistani forces are fighting against terrorists and this fight is in the middle of its success,” Foreign Office (FO) spokesperson Tasneem Aslam said.

However, a small group of activists belonging to the IS, which is led by an Afghan national, has distributed a booklet in parts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and tribal areas, particularly in Afghan refugee camps.

The booklet calls upon people to support the IS which has occupied large swathes of territory in Iraq and Syria.

It says the caliphate declared in parts of Iraq and Syria will expand to Khurasan, comprising Pakistan, Iran, Afghanistan and Central Asian countries.

  1. This barbarian group called ISIS has set its sights on Pakistan?….Will ISIS find a receptive audience among Pakistanis?…these terrorists have hijacked Islam and made it an abomination…how many Pakistanis will be supporters of these radical Islamic militant terrorists who brutalize everyone who thinks differently?…ISIS is ruining the reputation of Muslims all over the world with their violence and true peaceful Muslims should be leading the fight against them…
