Peshawar Jirga comes heavy against terrorism...

Thank you Peshawar!
It is a great day for Pakistan. Intellectuals in Peshawar held a jirga in which they give full support to the military operation against the terrorists. I do not want to give these terrorists any level of respect by calling them extermists or even militants. They are hard core terrorists. They have killed people, blown up schools, demolished police stations, blew children as suicide bombers, bombed mosques, wonder who is going to pay for all the loss and the eventual reconstruction?

At last we were hearing what we wanted to hear. They even went to the extent of advocating boycotting such persons naming Imran Khan and some others for supporting the terrorists by suggesting talks with them. We cannot talk to armed killers. They must lay down their arms, be tried, be duly punished by courts and then we will talk to them, not until then. It was so heartening the jirga gave no support to the terrorists and condemn them to the fullest. Bravo, well done.

There was some good news from Islamabad too when the Ulema Conference also condemned it in unequivocal terms. I am so glad the people like Jamath e Islami's Munawar Hasan and the like are side lined. If you are a law abiding people how could you support people who keep illegal weapons and fight the State, terrorise people and collect exorbitant taxes. Sorry we cannot show and sympathy or have soft corner for the terrorists.

It is nice to see gradually people are coming back to the constitution of Pakistan. The way the media was unawares promoting terrorism by broadcasting their extreme views supported by guys like Hameed Gul, Imran Khan, Qazi Hussain Ahmed, Aftab Baloch, Munawar Hasan, Waheed Hussain of Waqth News, Dr. Shahid of Geo and Hamid Mir of Geo and Talat Hussain of Aaj and other pedestrian journalists like Mujeeb ur Rahman Shami and the like. It had become too much. I think they must be stopped from giving currency to terrorist ideas. The worst part is when they demand talks with terrorists. You dont talk to them but punish them.

It should be banned to give pro-terrorism statements like that lady of TI Mazari does and so do the religious parties. They must be arrested, tried and punished for aiding and abetting in terrorism by airing their illegal views.

I totally agree with you. I cant understand why people like Imran Khan are considered for discussion, why we waste time on opinion cause in my view his view and my sweeper view have the same standing
