PESHAWAR: The national jirga, held by Difa-e-Pakistan Council (DPC) in Peshawar passed a resolution on Sunday.

In its resolution, the jirga demanded to halt Army operation in tribal areas, stating that the government should come out of this war on terror.

It also demanded to intensify the movement against drone strikes and Nato supply routes. It said that the government should allow Pakistan Air Force (PAF) to shoot down drones.

Meanwhile, India should not be given status of most favoured nation, the resolution included.

The national jirga expressed concern over the price hike in the country. The Difa-e-Pakistan council condemned the execution of Bangladeshi leader Abdul Quader Molla.

Addressing the jirga, Jamaatud Dawa chief Hafiz Muhammad Saeed said drone strikes were a conspiracy against the country.

Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-S) chief Maulana Samiul Haq said sectarian violence was sparked due to US war in the country, adding that peace would be restored the day Pakistan detaches itself from American war.

Jamaat-e-Islami general secretary Liaqat Baloch said it was the responsibility of the Pak army to shoot down drones.
