Agreed with your point and the other 2 quotes points above. But are we going to allow this continued blackmail? We barely at this point have a country left. According to your replies there is no solution left other than lets declare pak an islamic emirate and see our mothers/sisters be lashed by these savage animals. Is that your solution?
Why would they be lashed? Do they commit zina? And why would Taliban be lashing them & not a public law enforcement official?
Reality of the matter is Pakistan can't have its cake & eat it too. If you want to be an islamic state then sharia must be applied (whichever "version", take your pick). Otherwise stop being hypocrites, take the word "islamic" out from your name & kiss any moral superiority over TTP goodbye.
Also, the situation was deteriorating even before IK & Faiz. Negotiations continued even w/o IK. Even w/o Faiz, the state isn't going to do anything utterly stupid like invade or nuke Afg like you're demanding.
The policy by bajwa (or likely army itself) is clearly to continue engaging with IEA to increase economic & ppl-2-ppl cooperation, defend against TTP attacks & avoid raising hostilities with afghans as much as possible. The long term the goal is to stabilize afg, show it the benefits of cooperation, lower afghan hostility towards us & make them choose b/w us & TTP. It's going to take decades but it's the only long term solution. Otherwise it's endless war.
