    Reporters ask him number of time, why PMLn govt doesn't want to start clean up operation in Punjab, but he keep on ignoring the question. He keep on insisting terrorism is coming from Afghan land. LeJ and other terrorist organizations has operating centers in Punjab.

    Punjab govt is badly under pressure from other provinces to start clean up operation in Punjab. Sindh govt govt keep on pointing finger at Punjab. Punjab govt keep on denying if they have any terrorist . Today on Arynews Maulana Mufti Naseemi claimed, that a defunct terrorist organization open office next to his madrassah, he complaint to govt security agency to shutdown this office, instead he is receiving threats from that ban organization.
