A misguided offer... By Jalil

29 January, 2014

The Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has shown willingness to come to the negotiating table with the government. They have accused the government of throwing a spanner in the process of talks and remaining non-serious about the issue. They even claimed that they did not receive any plan of action from the government in this regard. One is in awe to read this blatant lie. These johnnies were the first to condemn the offer of talks and have been issuing threats to the government, followed by terrorist actions. This offer could also be a tactical move by the terrorists to buy time and regroup in anticipation of a military operation in North Waziristan against them.

As the PML-N parliamentarians and the opposition have said the other day, a military operation should be considered as the first option, I think the government should listen to the voice of the majority and take the action once and for all. One of the major mistakes being made by the government is that they are taking the TTP as a party and not as a banned terrorist group. The exchange of dialogue between Chaudhry Nisar and the militants through the media gives an impression of two stakeholders engaged in discussion over issues on which they differ.
