Islamabad – Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif Thursday called for stringent anti-terror laws in the country so that those involved in such activities are punished.

Chairing a meeting of the Anti-Terrorism Legislation at PM House here, Sharif said that the lacunaes in the country’s anti-terror laws should be removed, the Associated Press of Pakistan (APP) reported.

“There should be no gap and loophole in the anti-terrorism laws which allow the terrorists to get away with dreadful crimes,” Sharif said.

“We need strong, transparent but stringent laws to cope with the menace of terrorism. The required amendments must be finalised as soon as possible”, he added.

The prime minister underlined the need for amending the existing laws so that people involved in brutal and inhuman activities are bought to book and penalised under the laws of the land.

The meeting was also attended by Minister for Interior Chudhry Nisar Ali Khan, Minister for Information, Broadcasting and National Heritage Parvaiz Rasheed, Minister for Science and Technology Zahid Hamid and senior officials of the prime minister’s office.
