If we were being bombed in our villages in Punjab by drones, and then found out ‘our’ army is allowing it, how would you feel towards them?
Stupid example considering TTP is not Punjabi. There is a reason the bombing happens in Waziristan, not Punjab.
Come back to me when there is an active insurgency in Punjab consistently claiming the lives of innocents as well as officials, and historically captured nearly an entire province 👍🏻
Stronger rule of law in AJK. Rule of law is what Pakistan is missing.
There is not a stronger rule of law, the people just don't have a hard on for terrorism, nor do locals have sympathy for it.
Rule of law barely exists in AJK...
It's why pashtun nationalism and Taliban/TTP are always two sides of the same coin and not opposite to each other
Prior to Taliban emerging In the 90s we were attacked for decades by pashtun nationalists in essence
Tears for the afghan republic are pointless because they were MORE dangerous then the Taliban, they essentially glorified pashtunism, this is why our pashtun nationalists, ali wazirz Mohsin dawar,khattaks etc flocked there
The fall of the Afghan Republic pulled the rug from underneath the pashtun nationalists and achieved multiple aims for Pakistan
However horrendous the Taliban are,and whilst underneath they are pashtun chauvinists also, they keep the afghans under control
Whether it is PTM/TTP/Ghani/Bacha Khan
The cover ideology doesn't matter - what matters is Pashtun nationalism at its core, having a preferred form of that nationalism like Islamic is just a benefit
They like to deflect a lot and blame X, Y, Z - he did this, they did this so we are angry, faujis radicalised us we were pacifist, it's all cope. At the core their motives are Pashtun nationalism and they've always been violent - no one radicalised them. Faqir of IPI was around way before the Soviets.
