No link whatsoever between terrorism, Islam: Chaudhry Nisar

LONDON: Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan on Tuesday said there is no link whatsoever between terrorism and Islam.

“Terrorists fulfill the extremists’ agenda but try to project it as Islam’s war,” Chaudhry Nisar said while addressing a press conference here.
