The policy of confusion... By Hassam

25 January, 2014

The road map about the dialogue process with the terrorist is still awaited. In fact the situation is one of utter confusion, whether it is the ruling party or the opposition. In one week we hear that Maulana Fazlur Rehman is given the task to bring the Taliban on negotiation table. The other week we find his name replaced by Maulana Samiul Haq. Then all of a sudden a statement by one of these Maulanas appears saying that they had nothing to do with the dialogue process.

The policy of the state on terrorism has become a laughing stock. And if we turn towards the opposition, we see politics at its worst. When Khurshid Shah the leader of the opposition, like his other counterparts was supporting the process of dialogue, the twitter savvy Bilawal was issuing statement on twitter that the PPP will finish the Taliban. The question is that why at the first place did they sign the resolution at the All Parties Conference held in September 2013, when they had to back out of the dialogue option so quickly. The same is the case with the Awami National Party and the Muttahida Qaumi Movement.

The Pakistan Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf thinks that stopping NATO supply will resolve the problem and somehow this pressure will also stop drone attacks. This again has proved a misguided and misplaced policy. People are dying while the leadership of the country from the ruling to the opposition is busy presenting its own unique and at times weird position over the issue. The need of the hour is that the government decides what action it should take and then get ahead with it. This state of confusion is adding to the hopelessness facing the country.
