Typical, who allowed it? The great Taliban Khan allowed it himself as admitted in recent interview. Tariq is another retarded general..
Unfortunately, The Great Taliban Khan had no power to command or dictate the military in doing so. He only described the advice which military presented him. Its just a formal role to let PM know of what military is about to do.
Gen Bajwa who kept on visiting heads of states everywhere in the world, keep making his own foriegn policy. Made totally 180 degree opposite policy on Russia publicly to appease US. Was all the time playing his own game with his own rules.
So just for the sake of argument even if I believe in this ridiculous joke that IK ordered Bajwa on TTP. So, what really was stopping the lame military establishment and Bajwa to do their own thing in this highly sensitive matter?.. This matter which they should have understood most? Why they became so obedient in the security matter all of a sudden ? Why not so obedient in other matters?
btw! Why TTP came inside during PDM's rule? So was PTI holding them back ? Not at all.. whether its PDM or its PTI, both are irrelevant in this. TTP is allowed not by the PDM but by Pakistan's military. Its our establishment which makes security policy not the other way around. Its high time we learn this fact now.
