The two major parties in the governing coalition are the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) and the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), and the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) said on Wednesday that it is considering taking direct action against them (PML-N).
The TTP threatened that action will be taken against their leadership individuals if the two parties remain firm in their position and continue to be army slaves.
People should avoid approaching such strong persons, it was said.
According to the TTP, the TTP’s Jihadi field is merely Pakistan, and our aim is the security forces occupying the nation, and the world is aware of this.
Unfortunately… [Foreign Minister] Bilawal Bhutto Zardari handed the United States (US) the position of mother to satiate the desire of his mother’s affection, the statement added, adding that by doing so, he publicly declared war upon TTP. It went on to state that for a long period, it had not taken action against any political party.
Bilawal Sir is still a young man, but this unlucky individual has not yet seen the state of war, the note added.
According to the TTP, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif pushed the whole party into this struggle waged against TTP in order to placate the US.
The TTP announced in a message to religious leaders that there was no place for action against them under TTP doctrine, but added, We also ask that you cease activities against us.
The TTP’s announcement comes just one day after Prime Minister Bilawal declared that the coalition government would abandon the policy of appeasement of terrorists, reversing the previous Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) administration’s approach, which had engaged in talks with the banned organisation.
Furthermore, he contrasted between the TTP and the Taliban in Afghanistan, arguing that the former was a reality with a history, whilst the latter was nothing more than a terrorist organisation.
Furthermore, earlier this week, PM Shehbaz presided over a National Security Committee (NSC) meeting that examined Afghan strategy, including efforts to establish a peace accord with the TTP, which is illegal.
After examining the PTI government’s agenda and attempting to reverse some of the disastrous ideas, the NSC made many key policy choices. According to a source in Islamabad, the NSC has decided that never longer will there be any discussion with the TTP.
Armistice Of TTP
The TTP issued a statement in November declaring that they had authorised its fighters to carry out terrorist attacks across the country after calling off a June truce with the federal government.
Since its inception in 2007, the TTP has been responsible for hundreds of attacks and thousands of deaths, while being separate from the Taliban in Afghanistan and sharing a brutal ideology.
The government and the TTP agreed to a truce earlier this year after the new Taliban leadership in Afghanistan played a substantial role in mediating peace talks, but negotiations made little progress and there were several breaches.
