‘KP’s terrorists migrated to Darel. Operation inevitable’ Rehman Malik
Gilgit-Baltistan — PPP’s Rehman Malik, on his visit to Skardu, has claimed that the government has decided to undertake a military operation in Darel Tehsil of Diamer. A private TV channel reported.
Talking to religious scholars of different sects in Skardu he said that government has received reports from intelligence agencies that the terrorists have made their dens in Darel after military operations in the neighbouring valleys of KP and the tribal areas.
‘’Government will not allow anyone to play with the future of our next generation. All they want is to hinder any development in the region.”, Malik said.
He termed the recent violence a terrorism— not a sectarian act of violence.
Meanwhile political leaders of Diamer said that Darel is a land of peace loving inhabitants and there is no way any terrorist hideouts may exist there. They have rejected Rehman’s malik claim and asked him to visit the region instead of building opinion based on rumours.
“Any military or paramilitary operations would further complicate things and the transitional efforts of peace building on the part of youth will be marginalized. Peace cannot be harnessed through use of force” Diamer notables maintained.
Due the questionable public credibility of Senator Rehman Malik, his remarks, security assessment and promise for peace are not taken any serious in Gilgit-Baltistan.
