Bajaur Agency, tribal areas situated on Pak-Afghan border has been gripped by fear and terror as usually invisible hands have been trying to create bitterness between tribesmen and US forces, who according to reports, have started work on establishing a base along the border. All of sudden Taliban and terrorist have been allowed by government of Pakistan to carry on their activities.

Taliban commandoes have started patrolling the roads. Identity of Taliban is not yet ascertained. No one in the tribal areas knows who are these Taliban and terrorists. Situation in the areas is very critical. Local newsmen have been stopped from reporting the Taliban activities. Journalists were asked to refrain from reporting Taliban and terrorist activities, a journalist said.

It is pathetic to note here officials have been watching the situation, but taking no action against the Taliban. It is looking like that invisible hands have been trying to impose war on tribesmen of Bajaur Agency. Majority of the tribesmen do not want war and this the reason that they pledged full support to the United States in war on terrorism.

The Voice For Peace, a representative organisation of the people of tribal areas has called for resolving issues through talks. According to it, the people of tribal areas have been working for peace. It suggested that international journalists should visit the areas to ascertain the facts.

There are reports that Taliban and terrorists have been enjoying full support of the officials. It is ironic to note that Pakistan President Musharraf has pledged full support to United States, but there are officials who have been supporting terrorism.

Taliban and terrorist activities have put the lives of millions of people in danger. An unnecessary war is being imposed on the tribesmen and US. The US must take immediate steps and ask the government of Pakistan why Taliban and terrorists have been allowed to carry out their activities. Cooperation of tribesmen and US will be a victory against terrorism.
