ISLAMABAD:(APS)December 17, 2016-Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar responded to growing criticism against him on Saturday, saying the report on the inquiry into the attack on lawyers in Quetta is “one-sided”.

“I went to the prime minister yesterday, told him if my expression embarrasses the government then I would resign to set the record straight. He said that is unacceptable to him, which is why I am standing here in front of you today to tell you the other side of the story,” Nisar said at a press conference in Islamabad.

Nisar’s remarks come days after an inquiry report into an Aug 8 attack on lawyers in Quetta slammed government inaction against militants.

“I read this report in the papers, spiced up, thanks to the media,” he said. “I am not a lawyer but I fail to understand how a report was created without the interior ministry’s narrative in it, it is one-sided.”

“It hurt me to see the papers the next day. They accused me of lying to the public,” he added.

“I am a flawed man but I try and do the right thing, I do not lie to you (media). The security of this country is extremely sensitive. A personal blow to me is one thing but a blow to the national security is another matter.”

“People were against my speaking about the report but I was adamant to clear the matter and bring you the other side of the story.”

At least 70 people were killed and over 100 others wounded in a suicide bombing on Aug 8 at the emergency ward of Quetta’s Civil Hospital, where scores of people had gathered to mourn the death of Balochistan Bar Association (BBA) president Bilal Anwar Kasi in a gun attack earlier in the day.
