Islamabad, January 30 Federal Minister for Interior Ch. Nisar Ali Khan has said that visa restrictions imposed by the US will not affect terrorists. While answering a question, he said that his steps would not target terrorists but victims of terrorism.

Nisar said that Trump’s policies would damage international union against terrorism and favour banned organisations. He said that largely, Muslims across the world became victims of extremism.

Interior Minister said a number of NADRA mega offices will also become operational this year in all major cities.

While during a short span of one and half years, our government is setting up 74 passport offices in the country.
