Deal in Dir is a bad precedent and an encouragement of militants...

Will the deal work, they have not yet put down their arms... can there be hope? Usually they are not amenable to reasoning...
Wonder if it is the second poor decision in two days? The first being the performance of Mr. Rehman Malik with reference to Mumbai. It is a sad day that The Sovereign State of Pakistan has capitulated to the demands of people who have fought battles with The Army of The Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Will any country allow this? No way.

If they were fighting a constitutional war with the due process provided legally without arms, yes we could have considered. We cannot negotiate with these people who have killed people by the hordes, demolished our entire infra-structure and schools and institutions. They have destroyed the most beautiful area of Pakistan. Why should we listen to these people who want to force a way of life on others.

This insurgency should have been put down by force, the illegal fighters disarmed, put behind bars and duely punished for taking up arms against the State. And if Sharia as they describe is an issue then a referendum must be taken and decisions made according to the real wishes of the people not a few weapons weilding illiterate lot. We are sending a wrong signal encouraging others to take up arms.

The way we have dealt with these terrorists is neither constitutional nor democratic. This is fascism, forcing a point of view against the wishes of people. Do we want to make this The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia with no freedom of any kind? It is time The Government and Army of Pakistan shows strength and does what is best for Pakistan.

Hope they are not just buying time as they have done five times earlier. One good thing is The President wants results. Hope he is serious. If they don't lay down arms such punishment should be given that no one ever again dare to challenge Pakistan State.
Don't capitulate in front of illegal arms.

These terrorists must be hanged at the nearest lamp post. We must not negotiate with them. Due process must be applied. They must lay down arms, surrender and when peace is restored and trial and punishment and general amnesty can be given to those who do not possess weapons.

This movement is similar to the one which was started by the British secret services of the colonial regime. The movement named as a Wahabi Movement was an outcome of the conspiracy hatched by the British secret service against the Muslims. Using the cover of Wahabi movement, they disintegrated the great Ottomon Empire of the Muslims.

The way the Wahabi movement destroyed the strongest Muslim empire, the same way this Deobandi movement will destroy the strongest Muslim country Pakistan.

Wonder why the government is talking to them? Brainless guys and encouraging others to do the same. Will all provinces bleed to death and have their own systems? These are dangerous guys. Hopeless people. Allah save Pakistan from this gun weilding people.

Thank God Zardari is showing some mettle. He must ensure that each one of them must lay down their arms. We do not have to listen to these militants who know nothing about Sharia. Sharia does not tell you to force people. In the first place they do not understand Islam.

So you want your demands met then blow up houses, schools, hospitals and barber shops etc. Take up arms and kill policemen and army men, take them hostage, your demands will be met. Forget about democracy, forget about rule of law. Take up guns and solve your problems

All the religious political without any exception have always been functioning as tools and instruments of the intriguing alien powers. We can remember that the political movement of 1977 in Pakistan was totally monitored by the American CIA against the government of Z A Bhutto. Maududi, Noorani and Mufti Mehmood were no doubt the people of very good Islamic knowledge, but their political role was totally based on the conspiracy hatched by the American CIA. Henry Kissinger in his tour to Pakistan had warned Bhutto of dire consequences for his policies of forming an Islamic Bloc. Toppling of Bhutto’s government was followed by a similar conspiracy in Iran against Raza Shah Pehalwi.
