Role of Sami and Fazl... By Hanif

02 January, 2014

As Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has named Maulana Samiul Haq as the government's point man and icebreaker in the proposed negotiations, the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has ruled out any possibility of talks with the government, sticking to its stance that it could not contemplate the same until "security officials stopped targeting its leaders", according to Ehsanullah Ehsan, the group's former spokesman, who said the TTP will issue a formal response later. He came down hard on Maulana Samiul Haq and Maulana Fazlur Rehman and accused them of pursuing their political agenda under the pretext of the talks.

One does not see anything wrong with their demand. Every sane person can see who it is that is playing the negative role in all this and why. A leading security observer said that the same forces were active in the 60s and that too in the same direction, which resulted in the Bangladesh fiasco. But we will not learn our lesson as a lot of dirty money and personal interests of the true ruling elite are involved.
