Talking with evil

Sir: Despite the fact that the government is showing flexibility in negotiations with the TTP and its various groups, the banned outfit has hardened its stance to accept the government’s plea to broker peace unless Sharia is imposed in the country. Why is the government wasting time and putting the lives of its citizens in peril? It seems that we lack a competent leadership who can take a bold step. It is high time that Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif starts thinking about a military operation against the militants because we have seen talks faltering previously and resulting in making these evils more dangerous.
