What civil war? Terrorism is not "civil war". Let's have absolute clarity on this issue. TTP were/are clearly not the "Mujahideen" that we supported against Russians. None of these terrorists was even born when the Afghan jihad was going on. Anyone with confusion over this needs to revisit history instead of pointing fingers at our establishment. See this
for why what went on in FATA had to happen for certain strategic goals to be achieved.
Another "Bangladesh" type scenario is a hype that unfortunately supporters (I will not blame the party leadership because they have always avoided any such talk) of one specific party wants to continue to push for. If another Bangladesh is on the cards then realize it will be at the detriment of Punjabis, Pashtuns, Balochis and Sindhis alike. Nobody can say they had no hand in it. Perhaps some in the said party's base want the "hum idher, tum udher" situation. Try that out in KP and see how well that fares with Afghans hovering around KP ready to pounce and reclaim what they believe they lost more than a 100 years ago.
So these ultimatums may be great for blackmailing, but the reality that awaits dismemberment of Pakistan (over political divide) will be far worse than whatever goes on in Pakistan currently.
NS has been sent packing twice, BB twice, however they never took the secessionist route. It would be highly advisable for the "militant" members of the referenced party to realize the same.
Surprise to see that u r misquoting facts here. FATA operation was started during kiyani tenure long after mushraf was gone. Infact ttp was created in 2007 during last few days of mushraf. However, mushraf is the one that created an environment feasible for creation of ttp.
There is no question about TTP being terrorists. It is the sentiments that resulted in creation of TTP and that sentiments was due to policies of Musharaf.
1. It was mushraf who arrested and gifted afghani and pakistani mujahid freedom fighters to americans.
2. It was mushraf who arrested afghan ambassdor and gave it to US soldiers who then beat him and strip him naked right in front of pakistani soldiers on pakistani soil.
3. It was mushraf who allowed drome strike that resulted in murder of 200 madarsah students.
3. It was mushraf that let hundred of thousands of sorties from Pakistani soil resulted in murder of thousands of Pakistani and afghanis.
4. It was mushraf that handled lal majid issue with voilence when all civilian government was in favor of negotiations.
TTP was a reaction capitalized by extremist for the actions of mushraf and support if international agencies only in 2007 after 6 years of continuous torture and brutal actions of mushraf on afghanis and supporters of taliban.
Another threat that if a divide happens then it will be far worst for KP. Havent we read similar statement about bangladesh ? Look where they are now ? I am again surprised on the mentality of people like you ... Rather then listening to the grievance of people you are threatening of consequences seems like you dont care about the people rather the supermacy of establishment. Pakistan is in worst financial crisis and yet here u r saying that so what it has happened in the past ...
BB, NS sent packing ... Who sent them packing? The person sent them packing and his supporters is then responsible for near default situation of Pakistan. Enough is enough we are done with this bull shit of establishment and its supporters.
I dont see when will u open the eyes, meanwhile separatists are getting more and more powerful , army guys cannot go into balochistan and interior sindh and kpk other than in the forma of groups on convoys and yet u r saying we are not in civil war ... Get out of your shell, civilians might not have taken up arms but 80 to 90 percent civilians are cursing army and all of them are not PTI supporters. Get any polls anywhere and u will see the graph of popularity of establishment going down yet not realising the fact and let the only nationalists leader lead the country establishment not only sent him packing but tried to murder him ...
U guys are totally lost cant see writing on the wall
Did not expect this from someone of your calibre and think tank label.
Terrorism is not "civil war", It is not humane. It is not justifiable.
The killing of innocents, the killing of teachers, the killing of labourers is a crime against humanity.
All those who participate in such or support such deserve to be crushed by the state with utmost force.
Brother read history. Ttp was created in 2007. How will u justify mushraf actions against afghanis before that ?
