There, notorious head of banned militant outfit M Ahmed Ludhianvi’s presence cannot be called a prudent decision on the part of the power that be. The delegation in which renowned Shia Islamic scholars such as Allama Amin Shaheedi, Allama Iftikhar Hussain Naqvi, Allama Arif Hussain Wahidi, Deobandi cleric Mufti Mohammad Naeem, Sunni Bralevi Mohammad Raghib Hussain Naeemi, Pir Mohammad Aminul Hasanat and Council of Islamic Ideology chief Dr Qibla Ayaz were included, controversial figures and particularly heads of banned militant outfits should not have been part of that delegation.
The delegation also visited local garrison where they were briefed on the prevalent environment in North Waziristan, army’s operation against militancy and endeavours for socioeconomic uplift of people of the area. Genral officer commanding 7 Division, Major General Mumtaz Hussain, while interacting with ulema highlighted the measures being taken for development and economic revival in North Waziristan. The delegation appreciated the efforts and resolve of security personnel against militancy.
Later, the delegation drove through Miramshah city, witnessed Sarbankai Model Village, Miramshah bus stand, reconstructed market, DHQ hospital, Army Public School and Stadium Complex.
Thereafter, the delegation went to nearby Mirali town and besides interacting with Maliks they also visited Pak Sweet Homes Orphanage. The delegation members later departed for Islamabad.
However, for an ordinary Pakistani citizen, it is painful to see that those hatemongering who remains involved in terrorism, inciting people to violence against others in the name of sectarian differences, are produced as Mr. Clean. It was a wrong message and brings a bad name to Pakistan and tarnish its image.
