Bilawal criticises Imran Khan’s “wrong approach” to TTP

Canada Global (Web News) Imran Khan, the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), was reprimanded by Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari for taking the “wrong attitude” toward the TTP while he was the country’s prime minister.

According to Bilawal in an interview with Al Jazeera, the country’s issues were brought on by the PTI-led government’s “appeasement” of the TTP. But he claimed that the PTI’s strategy has been abandoned by the current administration.

The federal government made the decision to “not tolerate” terrorist organisations and lawbreakers in Pakistan during its National Security Meeting (NSC), which was attended by senior political and military authorities, said Bilawal.

Since the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), an outlawed terrorist organisation, broke its truce with the government in November of last year, there has been an increase in terrorist activity across the nation, particularly in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Balochistan.

The Taliban leaders in neighbouring Afghanistan share certain ideological similarities with the Pakistani Taliban, which is primarily made up of local combatants.

Without naming it, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has also requested that the Kabul administration refrain from giving terrorist organisations safe refuge on its territory.

Even though women are not permitted to work for NGOs by the Afghan government, the foreign minister emphasised the importance of talking to the Taliban.

When it comes to women’s rights or the fight against terrorism, engaging the Afghan government and persuading them to keep their commitments to the international community is the best course of action, according to Bilawal.

The foreign minister said that he hasn’t called Ubaid-ur-Rehman Nizamani back home in response to the attack on Pakistan’s Head of Mission in Kabul.

He had to return for some discussions and briefings. I’m hoping we’ll soon have the security we need to send him,” he said.
