New laws to 'wipe out' militants after Pakistan school massacre

Pakistan’s President Mamnoon Hussain plans to introduce new laws to eradicate militants following one of the country’s deadliest ever attacks which left 132 children dead last week.

Hussain said tragedy had united the people of Pakistan and even those who had supported militants in the past were now realising they had been wrong.

“No Muslim can carry out such a massacre of fellow Muslims.The only solution is to wipe them out. Pakistan should be cleared of such people,” the president said.

Hussain was speaking to the media after visiting the Combined Military Hospital to meet students wounded in the Taliban attack on their school last week.

The president talked to the students, praying for their quick recovery.

“God has been kind to you, you have survived,” he told a semi-conscious student.

Refering to the Taliban, he said to another: “These people are not Muslims. They have lost their way.”

Meanwhile students gathered in Pakistan’s largest city Karachi to protest against the school shooting massacre.

The country is still is shock and grief after the Taliban massacred 132 children when gunmen broke into the army school.
