First of all I want to write the appeal of Fatima to all Taliban to lay down their weapons and in return they will be given the pens. According to her, Taliban not the criminals could use their energies for making this world a better place. "As a mother of four children I ask all Taliban to lay down their weapons as the war only brings death and destruction," these are the words of Fatima conveyed to me by telephone as at the moment she is living in Bajaur Agency. There should be clear difference between Taliban and criminals. At the moment the word Taliban is being used for the criminals. All those who have hands in death and destruction in this world deserve no mercy. They must be brought to the court of law.

There may be lot of people, who will not agree with me, but this is the fact that at the moment Taliban is neither the problem of Afghanistan or Pakistan. Actually the gangs of criminals have been using this name for continuing the killings of people. Those who are committing crimes should not be called Taliban. They should be called the criminals and should be dealt with an iron hand.

It is irony that both the rulers of Pakistan and Afghanistan are corrupt. They have been keeping the United States engaged in useless war. They want to earn the dollars through war. They want to create economic crisis in the United States. They want to break the United States.

According to Fatima, US President Barack Obama and his team are successful both in Afghanistan and Pakistan. She gave full credit to Obama for defusing political tension in Pakistan. Actually the terrorists were planning to create anarchy in Pakistan as this is the only way for their survival. In a stable Pakistan and Afghanistan terrorists cannot survive.

Fatima also made an appeal to the mothers of United States to come forward and play a role in removing misunderstanding between the East and West. According to her, the East and West are the parts of this world. We all are the parts of this world.

According to her, she is ready to play the role of mediator between the warring parties. She said that the mothers of the world can play an effective role in defusing the situation. Fatima wants access to the media. She wants access to radios as she wants to say something to the world. She wants that all the mothers should come forward and play a role in making this world a better place as their children will be living in this world in the future.
