ISLAMABAD: Interior Minister Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad on Thursday said the government had decided to register all foreigners coming to Pakistan.
“There is no record of thousands of foreigners, who entered the country during the last 70 years,” he said while talking to media in Islamabad.
Sheikh Rasheed Ahmad said a strategy was being prepared to bring back the Pakistanis stranded at Torkham Border.
The federal minister also said the government would take strict actions against narcotics at large scale.
To a query, he said the issue of Tehreek-e-Labbaik Pakistan would be decided by the federal cabinet in its next meeting.
In April this year, the religious and political party Tehreek e Labbaik Pakistan (TLP) had filed an appeal against the ban imposed by the Pakistan Tehreek e Insaf (PTI) government on it.
The ruling party had banned the TLP allegedly for creating anarchy across the country after the government arrested the latter’s chief Saad Rizvi. The TLP was planning to march towards Islamabad after the government did not show interest in fulfilling its promise which was made to the party during its protest earlier.
