how this organization abuses the name of religion as a bulwark for committing repugnant offenses against

observing and witnessing many recent developments as Arab Spring and many other events had started to take
place and meanwhile the activities of Daish started extended worldwide replicating Al-Qaeda and Taliban.

expose this deadly terrorist outfit for the information of a common man and to give a wakeup call to the world
and to bring the heinous activities of Daesh on record” The author added.
He said that he as then Interior Minister had the courage to name Taliban and Zaliman and he was the only one
who kept chasing the reported activities of Daish and other sources. He said he was the one who discovered
the first ever presence of Daish in Daska Sialkot and its further extension to Southern Punjab and finally in
Kalar Syedan near the Capital but unfortunately, the then government despite to take preventive measures,
preferred to remain in denial state about the presence of Daish in Pakistan. He said that Khalid Karsani

terrorists of Daesh took training in Khost area of Afghanistan.

operators having trained in India.

Daish, Al-Qaida, Taliban and terrorist organizations also recites Kalma and Allah-o-Akbar and the one who
is being killed also chant the slogan of Allah-o-Akbar, adding, so what is the actual ideology of Daish and
obviously this ideology of Daish is anti-Islam and will continue to be anti-Islam.
