Senator A Rehman Malik said that he had pointed out the front organisations and groups that act as a platform for projecting and propagating Daesh’s lopsided worldview. He said that he has exposed in his book about the nexus between Al Qaeda and Daesh and how in many cases the Al Qaeda outfits shaped into Daesh.
Senator A Rehman Malik said that in fact he wanted to write this book few years back but he held it as he was observing and witnessing many recent developments as Arab Spring and many other events had started to take place and meanwhile the activities of Daesh started extended worldwide replicating Al-Qaeda and Taliban. He added that Daesh can be proved more dangerous than Al-Qaeda and Taliban. “By this book I wanted to expose this deadly terrorist outfit for the information of a common man and to give a wakeup call to the world and to bring the heinous activities of Daesh on record” the author added.
He said that he as then interior minister had the courage to name Taliban and Zaliman and he was the only one who kept chasing the reported activities of Daesh and other sources. He said he was the one who discovered the first ever presence of Daesh in Daska Sialkot and its further extension to Southern Punjab and finally in Kalar Syedan near the Capital but unfortunately, the then government despite to take preventive measures, preferred to remain in denial state about the presence of Daesh in Pakistan. He said that Khalid Karsani claimed to be the representative of Daesh and it could be visibly seen in former tribal areas. He said that the terrorists of Daesh took training in Khost area of Afghanistan.
He said that in his book he has exposed the nexus between the Indian terrorist organisation RSS and Daesh.

He said that his book Daesh-ISIS; Rising Monster Worldwide contains all about what people want to know about Daesh and it is dreadful terror creating modalities. He said that it is very unfortunate that the killer of Daesh, Al-Qaida, Taliban and terrorist organisations also recites Kalma and Allah-o-Akbar and the one who is being killed also chant the slogan of Allah-o-Akbar, adding, so what is the actual ideology of Daesh and obviously this ideology of Daesh is anti-Islam and will continue to be anti-Islam.
Senator A Rehman Malik said that Daesh has so far claimed 139 attacks not only limited to Afghanistan but also in Middle East, Iraq, Turkey, Europe and South Asia and now Finally in Sri Lanka. He said that Afghanistan and Pakistan have suffered the most in war against terrorism but unfortunately, the sacrifices of Pakistan have been ignored by the International community. He paid a rich tribute to the Pakistan Armed Forces for their sacrifices and fight against terrorist. The UNO should get benefit of the experience of Armed Forces of Pakistan.
