In a positive outcome after the deadly Peshawar Attack on innocent children, the political leadership of Pakistan has sit together setting all political differences aside.

Express Tribune reports:

“We have decided to draft a national plan of action against terrorists and act upon it immediately,” Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif said while reading out decisions taken at a meeting of heads of all parliamentary parties at the Governor’s House in Peshawar.
“We have unanimously decided that a committee under Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan will prepare a national plan of action against terrorism and present its report to the national leadership within seven days,” he announced. “This plan will be presented before the people of Pakistan after the approval of the political leadership.”

“We announce that there will be no differentiation between ‘good’ and ‘bad’ Taliban. We also resolve to continue the war against terrorism till the last terrorist is eliminated from the country,” the premier added.

“Operation Zarb-e-Azb is continuing successfully but we need to draft a plan of action to eliminate the menace of terrorism from the whole country.”

It is high time the political leader ship recognizes that the real danger is not from the foreign forces but within the country from the religious extremists spreading violent Jihadi philosophy and sectarianism in the society.

As Raza Rumi puts it:

“Three decades of Islamisation and the espousal of Islamic ideology as the national ideology has resulted in a widespread acceptance of acts committed in the name of Islam,”



Shortly after the all parties conference held in Peshawar, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan called off its sit-in in the wake of Tuesday’s Taliban attack at Army Public School in Peshawar.

Addressing his supporters at D-Chowk on Wednesday, Khan said that “we will have to end the dharna due to the present security situation in Pakistan.”

“I am asking Nawaz Sharif will he come up to the expectations of the nation about vote audit, probe into rigging” “We hope that Prime Minister Sharif will form a judicial commission to investigate the last general elections.” “

“If rigging was not done, we will accept your government, but if rigging is established, you will have to call a fresh election,” he demanded

The PTI chief pledged that he would not desist from his demand to get justice. “We will come on streets again if justice is not served.”

This decision was taken with mixed reactions on social media, the supporters were disappointed but mostly the analysts and journalists were happy and welcomed the timely decision by the PTI chairman.
