The United States has been trying to win the hearts and minds of the people of tribal areas situated on Pak-Afghan border. It should be kept in mind before discussing this question that thousands of people have been killed in the fighting in tribal areas. Both the US and Pakistan have used all their resources for killing the people of tribal areas. Though they have come to tribal areas on the pretext that they have been carrying out an operation against Taliban and terrorists, but that was not happened. Only innocent people were targetted and terrorists were given the chance to flee from the scence. As usual they will reappear on the scene after ease in operation.
Today I have received a letter from an official in US administration seeking my view that how can the minds and hearts of the people can be won. The official, who is a Pakistani and my close friend sent me the message. I am putting his message here with the hope that you will help me in preparation of a response to the letter. At the moment I cannot disclose the name of the sender, but later on I will disclose his name. I want to take his permission before disclosing his name. The official has sent a night in my house in Bajaur Agency. The following is the letter.
