PTI’s Barrister Saif Thinks Swat Protest Against Militancy is a Proof of Peace [Video]

Special Assistant to Chief Minister Khyber Pakhtunkhwa on Information and Public Relations Barrister Muhammad Ali Saif is known for making controversial statements.

In such instance, he has made a shocking statement about the protest against militancy in Swat. During a TV interview, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader said that such a huge protest is a proof of peace in the region.

He added that the number of incidents are not as much which should set the alarm bells ringing. According to him, the KPK government is taking retaliatory measures against militants.

Barrister Saif claimed that the situation isn’t so bad. “People coming out on the streets in such big numbers is a proof that the magnitude of militant activities isn’t such which is being presented,” he said.

It should be noted that thousands came out across KP against the killing of a school van driver in Swat. A protest was held with the dead body of the driver which ended after successful negotiations.

However, a separate demonstration was held by the Pashtun Tahafuz Movement against the surge in militancy. PTM chief Manzoor Pashteen and leaders of Awami National Party (ANP) also addressed the massive crowd.
