Islamabad: In a huge embarrassment for Pakistan, a leading senator in the Pakistan Parliament, Farhatullah Babar, during a discussion on Quetta and Mardan terror attacks, raised questions on the nexus between terrorist groups and state institutions.

Babar has singled out instances to prove the state-terror nexus.

Babar’s indictment has come at the time when PM Modi had, without directly naming Pakistan, said that one single nation in South Asia was spreading terrorism in the world. Meanwhile, an international consensus has also begun to emerge over backing moves to impose sanctions on Pakistan.

Babar who was previously an advisor to the former Pak President Asif ALi Zardari, while speaking about the nexus between terror groups and current establishment, also said that there was enough evidence with regards to the address that have been found of Masood Azhar, the leader of the militant group Jaish-e-Mohammed.
