‘Abide by law or face action’

As discussed before in this space, any reconciliation with the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) is not possible because they are untrustworthy. On the pretext of getting engaged in talks, they only buy time for regrouping and conducting more violent attacks on vulnerable targets. After the TTP declared an end to the recent ceasefire agreement, the government has also issued a warning to the TTP to either abide by the state law or face the action.

History shows that the crimes and violence orchestrated by the TTP in the country are unforgiveable. Their total belief revolves around violence of all sorts against the country’s sovereignty as they want to impose their set of interpretation of Islam where there is no place for tolerance and difference of opinion. Interestingly, they are opposing their agenda with the alleged help from neighboring country India. The existence of such groups in itself is a great danger to the peace and their elimination can save the lives of many innocent citizens. Now, the government has issued the warning, it needs to act further and seek help from the Afghan Taliban for the elimination of this terror group.

Now, the roadmap is precisely clear about the policy on how to deal with the TTP militants. Pakistan needs to use its influence on the Afghan Taliban to force the TTP militant to quit violence. Alternatively, the government needs to use military action and intelligence based operations against all perpetrators of violence to rid the country of the scourge of terrorism. Those militants who are ready to quit violence must be engaged in talks while those who are not ready to lay down their arms should be eliminated. Peace is in the interests of Pakistan and it should strive to achieve it at all costs.
