PESHAWAR: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) leader Professor Ibrahim has said that the Taliban committee has forwarded the demands of the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) to the government. He declared the nation will get peace as a gift very soon. Professor Ibrahim said that the venue for direct talks between the Taliban and the government representatives will be decided very soon. He said the TTP had assured that the group will not put the government into any hassle. He also said that the Taliban were investigating the terrorist group Ahrarul Hind, which has recently claimed some attacks. Ibrahim said that foreign elements were involved in sabotaging the peace talks and asserted that the talks could be fruitful if they were held in Mehsud tribe’s areas.
