TTP Tends to Seek Revenge from Pakistan

The TTP spokesman Azam Khan on Saturday, November 2, 2013, stated that on the appellation of dialogue, the two respected TTP leaders, Walli-ul-Rehman and Hakeem-Ul-Allah, have been butchered as part of the secret plan the Americans and their friends are heinously undertaking against them. He also reiterated that the Taliban would rigorously take revenge and each drop of Hakeem-Ul-Allah's blood would generate a suicide bomber.

Actually, this statement is made in wake of the recent blow to TTP when their leader has been killed in a deadly UAV strike in which Hakeemulallah, along with his uncle, driver, and Taliban guards, lost their lives.

Coherently speaking, the aftermath of this deadly strike is not conducive for Pakistani nationals in term of expected slaughter of both lives and property. The immense suicide bombing is also likely to be observed in the coming days in wake of the newly ushered saga, which would undermine the internal security of the country. Subsequently, the internal security according to official sources is highly made alert to cope with the appalling threats of new wave of bloodshed.

This incident has two facets of its occurrence. The one aspect  concerns with the TTP whereas the other one is directly relevant to the government's policies. The TTP's leader is killed by the Americans through the drone weaponry and the former's spokesman is eager to mitigate his odds by pushing on the button of the suicide bombing in Pakistan, which will ultimately make the innocent Pakistanis as victim. Technically, the drones are guided by the remote command and control which operates UCAV (drone) to chase the target in the light of the collected information and intelligence.

Thus, the informant was present in the area where the attack had been launched. Additionally, there was someone close to the TTP High Command who learnt the exact time of the mobility of TTP leadership. That is why the attack proved successful. As a consequence, it is TTP's own vulnerability on one hand and they can take revenge from the Americans deployed in Afghanistan in the adjacent areas of FATA. The revenge-seeking from the Pakistani nation is not to serve Islam as the Taliban serving to Islam.

On the part of the Pakistani government, the situation is quite ambiguous and hazy. Though Choudhry Nisar, the Interior minister, has condemned the one-sided attack, labeling it as the plan to sabotage the peace process with Taliban that is in the prime interest of Pakistan, yet there are a lot of confusions, prevailing to the position the Pakistani government is pursuing.

Dr Tahir-Ul-Qadri on the November 2, 2013, has termed the incident as the byproduct of the Meeting between Nawaz Sharif and the Barak Obama. He explained that Nawaz Sharif allowed Washington to continue the drone strikes at the expense of the financial aid that should, without further delay, be granted to Pakistan. Similar speculations are revolving throughout the country that Pakistani policy-making is involved in the incident. If this is true, that is not rational happening but incoherence on the part of Pakistani government in its policy as well as decision making. The reason is simple. The killing of the TTP leader would bring the country further towards instability.

These speculations could prove no more than rumors if the government fulfills its resolve of apostasy to the relations with USA and terminates its cooperation with the latter for sake of safe withdrawal from Afghanistan. That is how the decision for making peace at any cost, undertaken in the renowned All Parties Conference (APC), could prove fecund, which was also corroborated by the Pak-Army. Ch. Nisar has rightly avowed that we had to do now what is in the prime interests of the country when Washington has done what it wished.   According to Ch. Nisar, USA was discouraged to target Hakeem-ul-allah when it articulated to eliminate the TTP Leader if his position is traced.

To wind up, the Sharif regime is highly predisposed for meeting the requirements of the internal and external security situation under the present scenario and to review its policies to materialize the mandate given by the people to restore the peace and stability in the country otherwise the present government seems to be merging in the quagmire like situation in the coming days. It also do the level-best efforts to pacify the TTP grievances, which seems determined to undertake the suicide bombing in the country.
