It is still pretty suspicious that under all this chaos, TTP has started to resurge in places like Swat with ISPR accounts saying its fake news then confirmations taking place.
Then why did PTM protest against TTP in Swat?
Shows you don't know $hit
At the peak of TTP they were knocking on doors in Pakistan and taking the eldest son to become their child suicide bomber. They would train them to blow themselves in markets.
This is what we are dealing with. This group is Afghan and supported by the Taliban.
70k Pakistani lives could have been saved had we been more proactive. PA needs to create a red line, one more attack and Paktia, Kunar and Khost gets chemical attacks and grandma will be incinerated alongside her grandchildren. F**k it lets toast the entire family tree.
Dealing with the Afghan taliban is the easy part, killing innocents will make it harder.Killing innocents only sharpens the enemy's resolve.
Plus, it would lead to a full on war with the taliban- something we cannot afford.
I'm assuming that after the whole recent debacle with IK, they are becoming more PTM leaning with less belief in Khan. It's a growing sentiment, and I doubt PTI will have the same level of support without Imran Khan.
1. Because of sour relations between the two historically and racism. A lot of Pashtuns consider Punjabis their arch nemesis lmao
2. Why are most of their attacks limited to Pashtun areas and their demands limited to Pashtun areas (issues)? Even their fighters seem to be mostly Pashtun.
Because Kashmiri insurgency is dead.no one is truly up-to-date on Kashmiri insurgency news.
Just because they claim something it doesn't really mean much when their actions seem to imply something else.
It was in reference to the potential high risk areas in the future.
Although there has been threats:
They are all the same trash people
What's the point of blocking a road saying your peaceful when your own brothers are killing and bombing places. Then when security attempts to block your brother's you come out to protest
No Insurgency or terrorists actions can take place without local support,, this is FACT. Why can TTP come back Into those areas and not anywhere else? Because the locals have always been complicit and involved
Probably because of the way ethnic groups are spread out in the country.Why hasn't there been a Punjabi vs Pashtun riot in Pakistan then?
It's still a sus movement, if their objectives were so broad, you'd expect more ethnicities to take part and the attacks to be spread out rather than concentrated in specific Pashtun areas.They want shariah over all of Pakistan, that's not really a Pashtun nationalist thing.
Lmao if you read the replies of the TTP fanboys they themselves literally call it "Islamic Pashtun nationalism" - which is exactly what's been happening in Afghanistan. They take control in the name of Islam and then start massacring the Hazaras and Tajiks.@Mirzali Khan
Direct line. Right from right from Mirza Ali Khan aka Faqir of Ipi to Baitullah mehsud
THIS.To tug on the current emotional sentiments of the people. It can't abandon them when they are at their most vulnerable point.
Exactly. All their politics and actions are ethnic-centred because that's their culture.THIS.
PTM stands to gain the most from angry PTI voters who feel IK isn't doing enough, which a lot of people genuinely believe. and they are doign it.
All of sudden, you see these stupid mofos of PTI on twitter saying manzoor pashteen was right and shit like that. esp after that speech in lahore.
To these people, i say, once he's taken advantage of a weakened army, he'll be coming for your daal-khor a*s.
Strange...yesterday PTI announced election today TTP activated its terrorism
The Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) on Monday called off the ceasefire agreed with the government in June and ordered its militants to stage attacks across the country, according to a statement from the group.
“As military operations are ongoing against mujahideen in different areas […] so it is imperative for you to carry out attacks wherever you can in the entire country,” the statement, which is available with Dawn.com, said while addressing its militants.
The decision, it stated, was taken after “a series of non-stop attacks were launched by the military organisations in Bannu’s Lakki Marwat district”.
The banned group said it had repeatedly warned the people of Pakistan and “continued to be patient so that the negotiation process is not sabotaged at least by us.”
“But the army and intelligence agencies did not stop and continued the attacks […] now our retaliatory attacks will also start across the country,” the statement claimed.
The government and intelligence agencies are yet to comment on the matter.
Talks between Pakistani officials and the militant outfit first started in October last year but broke down in December.
These later resumed in May this year. The process, however, broke down once again due to a deadlock on the revocation of the merger of erstwhile tribal areas with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Subsequently, attacks by the TTP have been on the rise since September after the group’s ceasefire with the army ended. Most of the attacks have happened in and around Dera Ismail Khan, Tank, South Waziristan, and North Waziristan districts in KP.
In October, the Ministry of Interior had warned that more than year-long peace negotiations between the TTP and the government of Pakistan “had come to a standstill”, which had led to unease within the TTP’s ranks.
It had noted that the TTP accuses the Pakistani government of failing to fulfill its main demand — the reversal of the merger of former Fata with KP — as well as continuing to detain TTP members while a truce was still being negotiated.
The ministry had also highlighted the risk of TTP sub-groups defecting to the militant Islamic State (ISKP) or joining hands with the Hafiz Gul Bahadur group to resume terrorist activities.
Meanwhile, in a press conference earlier this month, Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari had called for the government to revisit its strategy to deal with the militant outfit.
“It is time to review decisions we took or we were made to take with regards to internal security and terrorism,” he had said.
Bilawal had also maintained that there was nothing wrong in admitting that “we were wrong about a few things and right about some other things and re-examine our approach”.
Says decision was taken after its members were targeted in a "series of non-stop attacks" in Bannu's Lakki Marwat district.www.dawn.com
