Sirajul Haq shouts for peace as Governor KPK tells ‘enough is enough’


PESHAWAR – The chief of Jamat-e-Islami (JI) Sirajul Haq has raised voice to maintain peace in Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) as the Governor Khyber Pakhtunkhuwa (KPK) gave out ‘enough is enough’ call.

According to the details gathered by PakistanTribe‘s correspondent from power corridors of KPK, the JI’s chief appealed from all political parties to play role in achieving peace, whereas, Governor KPK hinted on full scale offensive against outlawed militants.

Governor KPK, Sardar Mehtab Khan Abbasi, held consultation with at least 42 representatives from North Waziristan’s tribes. Governor Abbasi said “Tribal representatives were given a clear message that ‘enough is enough’. All tribesmen have been held as hostages by few elements. We will not let the blood of Lt Colonel Zahir go in vain.”

Governor Abbasi was clearly hinting on the full scale offensive by the Pakistan Armed Forces. However, the leader of JI, Sirajul Haq was the one raising voice to achieve peace in the troubled FATA region.

“Tribal people are always being neglected,” he said. “KPK government initiated the peace process along with the federal government. It started giving results. But later situation got out of control. However, now all political parties regardless of their political affiliations must play a role to achieve peace,” he added.

Its pertinent to mention here that outlawed TTP had accepted the responsibility of Fateh Jhang attack in which two senior officials of Pakistan’s premier spy agency lost their lives on June 4.
