PM Nawaz Sharif Forms A Four Member Committee For Peace Talks With Taliban

Emphasizing clearly on the point that innocent people should be not be killed in bomb blast attacks, PM Nawaz Sharif tries to gather up some trust from the nation while going for the peace talks with Pakistan Tehreek-e-Taliban. Prime minister thinks that he felt that the peace talks should be given a chance because Taliban has shown indications of inclination towards negotiations. For the purpose of talking with Taliban PM then formed a committee consisting of four members and announced the forming of this committee in front of the parliamentarians.

The committee of four members will have Rustam Shah Mohmand, Irfan Siddiqui, Rahimullah Yousafzai and Major (retd) Muhammad Aamir on board. Irfan Siddiqui is the advisor to the PM on the national affairs whereas Rustam Shah Mohmand has been sent as an ambassador from Pakistan to Afghanistan in the past. The prime minister continued to use statements of condemning of terrorism in Pakistan while talking about friendly talks with Taliban. It seemed as if he was constantly trying to fight the fear and pressure of the people in the nation who are not in favor of holding talks and negotiations with Taliban at all.

Chaudhary Nisar Ali Khan, who’s the interior minister and also one of the most respected members of Pakistan Muslim League, will be assisting the committee as its advisor.

This might be the first thing where the government of Pakistan seems to be listening to the opposition leaders knowing that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf has been the only party supporting and asking for dialogues with the Talibans. PM has also assured the opposition party that the negotiations and the entire process will be transparent, and that the dialogues will reach a logical end within a set timeframe.

Once again, prime minister injected statements within his address to assure the parliamentarians and the nation that the government was serious about thwarting the terrorist attacks from Taliban but not going to bow down and accept these attacks as a justification of the drone attacks. Prime minister kept laying stress on the fact that even though drone attacks are killing innocent lives but those who are killed in attacks from the Taliban are not the people responsible for the drone attacks.
