Time to wake up... By Masood
24 January, 2014
It's probably time to congratulate the Pakistani Taliban and their supporters on the militants' consistency and big heart to offer peace talks even after killing scores of soldiers and civilians in the last few weeks. Obviously this offer is coming from a position of strength.
After killing 20 soldiers, then another six, they have renewed the offer for talks. Their spokesman insisted that the demand for Shariah can't be suppressed by force and soon they would lead parliament for this purpose. Isn't it about time the Pakistani state, government, army and general public say: enough is enough? This is no more an internal affair of Pakistan; if not contained today, it will become a problem for the whole world. It is time to wake up.
