Giving Peace a Chance !

Withdrawal deadline of NATO forces from Afghanistan nears, so does the  need to regenerate “friendly environment”  in the region. Indeed, negotiating with Afghan Taliban is of crucial importance at this hour.
Similarly, Taliban on Pakistan side have to give peace a chance too. There is no doubt that sectarian warfare has turned Pakistan upside down: To a great extent, there is  a justification in finger pointing towards Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), Punjabi Taliban, FATA warriors, the secessionists in Balotochistan, the Balochistan liberation army (BLA) as they keep defying WRIT of the STATE creating difficult scenario for the region unfortunately.
And of course, the warring gangs of Karachi have added further fuel to the painful reality, yet with the aggravating law and order situation, the authorities also are increasingly becoming too incapacitated to crack down on the (anti-Pakistan) proxy warriors.
The Taliban factions including the foreign intruders are successfully launching their attacks all over the country. They even have penetrated the security forces.
The fact is Karachi-the commercial hub now resembles a battlefield, where proxy war is being fought to satisfy the stakeholders.
Furthermore, the degree of looting, target killing and kidnapping for ransom is severe enough to scare off the peaceful citizens.
Sadly, the paralysis of country’s administrative machinery and the ongoing terror attacks in Karachi and elsewhere, especially the “Shiite-genocide” at different locations show that the enemy appears determined to dismantle the country at all cost by using all available tactics.  The patriotic Pakistanis are justified to suspect - a major game plan is at play to break up the country into pieces. God forbid!
Certainly, the religious extremism is un-Islamic thing, which becomes a weapon (remote control) in the hands of mysterious stakeholders. The irony is, the security apparatus is only functional to protect the VIPs in Pakistan, while the vulnerable public remain prone to the deadly attacks 24/7. Hence, government’s commitment to the fight against terrorism is increasingly becoming questionable.
Some TV channels are suggesting the militants of Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ) and Sipah-e-Sahaba (SSP) in Karachi are involved in the recent merciless genocide of the ill fated Shias of Abbas Town and the killing of Hazaras as well.
Though, Taliban claim to establish a strict Muslim religious order, yet their track record of "brutality and terrorism" show their anti humanity (anti Islam) mindset. They have indulged in destruction of schools, places of worship, market places, housing complexes and public property. They have killed over 45,000 innocent Pakistani civilians so far. In complicity with other terrorist groups, these Taliban are still involved in target killings and massive genocide in the major cities of Pakistan.
Enough is enough: It’s time for sitting on the negotiating table for all parties in the region. Therefore, Pakistan is now fully supporting the Taliban’s new address outside Afghanistan.
In this regard, British Prime Minister David Cameron hosted Afghanistan's President Hamid Karzai and Pakistan's President Asif Zardari  for trilateral talks on Afghanistan's peace and reconciliation process. The three leaders agreed to open an office in Qatar's capital for negotiations, expecting the Taliban to soften their hardline stance against discussions.
Subsequent to the recent five days dialogue between the Afghan Taliban and the U.S. in  Doha Qatar, Pak foreign minister Khar’s visit there does indicate the  determination to bring peace in the region.  However, the Afghan Taliban at Doha once again insisted for the release of their prisoners and kept rejecting the government of President Hamid Karzai.
On the other hand, Pakistani Taliban militants have welcomed the five-point declaration of an All Parties Conference (APC) called by the Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (JUI-F) for steps to restore peace in Pakistan’s restive tribal areas.
It’s noteworthy that the political parties have sent a positive message by excluding the word "terrorism" from the 'Joint Declaration.' The Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) gives it high regards. (Dawn News). Thirty political parties agreed on forming a grand tribal jirga representing all schools of thought. However, the Taliban want to propose their own names for representing them in the grand assembly. It’s been agreed to negotiate peace with the militant elements through a grand tribal group comprising 17 representatives. The declaration added that practical steps were needed to end lawlessness in the country. The process of peace negotiations would be fully supported to establish a rule of law in the society.  
The APC announced that the incumbent government, the caretaker setup and the next government would be bound to follow declaration.
Nevertheless, the declaration is inherently defective for following reasons: Firstly, not taking Pakistan Tehreek-e-insaf (PTI) on board is the biggest blunder which has been made by the APC. Secondly, the one-sided concessions to the Taliban can ruin whatever success the armed forces have achieved against terrorists.
Almost everyone now realizes that only a viable solution through negotiated settlement is in the best interest of Pakistan and the region, but time will tell where the dust settles.

As always, you give us much to think about, dear Tariq. I was just having a discussion with a dear friend on this very subject. It is only when we are willing to put down weapons, and "do unto others"...only then can we progress with peace. A complex issue, and sending a prayer for peace.
Take care,
- Irina

I was curious if you ever considered changing the structure of your blog?
Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?
