‘Taliban regrouped on pretext of talks’

ISLAMABAD – Former Interior Affairs minister Rehman Malik on Tuesday said that Taliban had regrouped and strengthened themselves on the pretext of peace negotiations with the government.

Talking to a private news channel, he said that the government was sincere in dialogues with the Taliban but the militia had malicious intentions in their hearts. “After regrouping themselves in the name of peace talks, now they have got their accomplices released,” he said.

Addressing members of core committee, Tehreek Nafaz Fiqh-e-Jafariya leader Agha Syed Hamid Ali Shah Moosavi said that they supports peace talks with Taliban but the nation should be informed about the pace of dialogue and proceeding over the peace process.

He also said the rise of Narendra Modi in India could be harmful to Pakistan and Kashmiris. The TNFJ chief said that pitching the armed forces against terrorists, judiciary and sometimes against media was a part of the international strategy to weaken the Pakistan Army.
