PAKISTAN ARMY DEMANDS APOLOGY FROM ISLAMIST LEADER

0

ISLAMABAD: The Pakistan army has demanded unconditional apology from an Islamist leader for calling a dead militant a “martyr,” saying his remarks “hurt the feelings” of families of those who died fighting for their country. The leader of the main Jamaat-e-Islami party, Syed Munawar Hassan, sparked controversy by terming slain Taliban chief Hakimullah Mehsud—killed by a US drone—a “martyr” in a recent television program.
