IHRC SWEDEN - AMBASSADOR AT LARGE NASIM MALIK

PRESS NOTE > SWEDEN

Malik (S ) in Kalmar, he came home last Sunday, from a trip from his old homeland Pakistan. Under tuesday he followed the reporting on how a group of Taliban militants crossed into a school in Peshawar in northwest Pakistan, killing schoolchildren. Hundreds dead and many more injured were reported on Tuesday afternoon. The kids at school are between 10 and 18 years old. A terrorist group in the area have claimed responsibility.
- I'm in shock, says Nasim Malik previously committed to the girls right
to schooling in their ancient homeland and praised Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai.
The fundamentalist terrorists demands that Pakistan will be governed by Islamic Sharia law, where religion becomes part of the state apparatus.
- It is the most dangerous thing there is. The mixing of religion and politics are
the cause of many of today's conflicts in Palestine, Israel, Syria, Iraq, Iran, and many other places, says Nasim Malik.
- The religion belongs to the private sector. How ever state should not have to do with religion which is a personal matter of a citizen.
Nasim Malik, with very good insight into Pakistani politics and with good contacts in the country is concerned about how the fundamentalists succeed infiltrate into the state. They are within military, police and politics.
- They are given influence, both open and hidden. It is hoped to reduce fighting through to include these groups. It is absolutely wrong tactics. Once they had little influence they want more
