Pakistan is scared after the dreaded terrorist organization Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) broke the ceasefire. The TTP has declared that its fighters are free to attack wherever they want. After which Pakistan, which came on the back foot, has put such a condition for talks with the terrorists, which no one can digest. Pakistan’s Information Minister Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said that we will talk to only those who believe in the constitution and law of Pakistan.
Why would terrorists believe in the Constitution and the law?
Now who should explain to the Pakistani minister that how any terrorist organization can believe in the constitution and law. Not only this, if he believes in the constitution and law then why would he take up arms and why would the Pakistan government need to talk to that organization. Fawad Hussain also said that we have fought terrorists in the past and will continue to fight.
