Afrasiab Khattak, a Pashtun politician said Tuesday Pakistan’s offer of dialogue to Pashtun Tahaffuz Movement (PTM) was aimed at weakening the movement not to resolve the long lasting issues.
Khattak said mistrust between the Pakistani government and the PTM was high and that it was a waste of time to negotiate until the country fulfill all PTM demands.
According to Khattak, the Pakistani military had earlier offered to negotiate with the PTM, but you saw that the leader and members of the movement were arrested and detained.
Afrasiab Khattak says thousands of Pashtuns are missing. Despite the assassination of Naqibullah Mehsud, 443 more extra-judicial deaths are being sought but the killer of these innocent Pashtuns, Rao Anwar, is still free like a “white eagle”.
