My friend went back to Swat for the first time since 2016. He told me in 2016 there was people in Swat that were pro army and also people that were anti army ptm type. Now he tells me 2022 everyone is anti army ptm type. Majority of Swat has anti army opinions according to him. They believe ptm narrative that army is behind it all. He also confirmed the Taliban thing was overhyped and exaggerated but he said that’s made more people anti army because people blame army of playing games with them now using ttp.
This seems to be the new trend in many areas in KP. Many people are starting to accept ptm narrative and become anti army.
Very concerning for Pakistan and Army.
Overhyped ? Pro-PTM ? This is today.
