JI also edging out of Taliban dialogue committee

06 February, 2014

ISLAMABAD: Following the footsteps of JUI (F) and PTI, JI has also started showing signs of cracking up for a forthcoming refusal to participate in dialogue with Taliban.

As such JI has maintained a mysterious silence over the issue, while Mian Aslam has merely limited his statement to "JI is in favor of dialogue" only.

Deliberating over his statement he further said that the final decision regarding (JI's) Professor Ibrahim's being a part of the committee is subject to the approval of party Ameer (head).

Sources have said that many earlier 'dialogue-oriented enthusiasts' were slowly edging out of their vociferous Úlan, each offering its readily available excuse.

PTI's Imran Khan edged out with his excuse saying "Taliban had their own ideology and stance; hence they should rather elect their own representatives", followed by JUI (F)'s pulling off its nomination of Mufti Kafayatullah over the reservations of "not being taken into confidence", and ignoring the jirga JUI wanted to form over the issue.

Journalists who contacted JI's Ameer Syed Munawar Hussain during Wednesday's Kashmir Day Rally were greeted by a simple "no comments", after which he simply boarded a car and sped away.
