PESHAWAR – Jamaat-e-Islami leader Professor Muhammad Ibrahim, who is also a member of the Taliban’s coordination committee, said on Sunday that the government and the Taliban have yet to begin real talks.
Addressing a gathering here, Ibrahim said that the government, the military and the Taliban should have to move the dialogue process forward with sincerity. He said that the current peace process was facing few problems from both the sides. The Taliban prisoners have yet been released by the government, he added.
He announced that Taliban would agree to abide by the constitution if the government enforced Islamic law in Pakistan. He urged the Taliban leadership to halt attacks on the security institutions, and said that the dialogue process was the only way forward for peace no matter how much time it fails.
“Pakistan is paying a price for being involved in another country’s war and Pervez Musharraf is to be blamed for that,” he said. Over treason case against the former president, Ibrahim said that it was the responsibility of the federation to take the matter to its logical conclusion.
