If you are so confident about resolving this bloodshed with parleys then why did you refuse to take part in negotiations when nominated by TTP. If you still believe in negotiations you should take initiative and start negotiating with TTP voluntarily.

Notwithstanding what government says about the importance of negotiations with TTP, one pertinent question that needs answering why is there any need for negotiation in the first place? If the answer is to ensure peace and security in Pakistan, then it is simply an admission on the part of government that as they have been unable to secure peace and security in the battle ground now they want to achieve it on negotiation table. Simply put, government wants TTP to present them with their terms of peace as victors.
And if state can defeat TTP but using negotiations to delay final settlement until NATO completes its drawdown from Afghanistan, it simply means that tried, tested and failed policy of strategic depth is still the central plank of Pakistan's foreign and defense policies. So if some fear -and signs of this fear are very much evident on the grounds of Muzafferabad, AJK- return of violence in Kashmir then this fear is not far fetched.
My personal gut feeling is that Pakistani state can not defeat Islamists in the long run, not because they do not have weapons to do so it is because the inherent contradictions upon which the whole structure of this state is built upon. They are doomed if they negotiate with TTP and they are doomed if they fight with them. By negotiating they can only delay the outcome.

Sharif said he told Singh during a meeting in Delhi in December that the matter was with Pakistan’s courts and “those who are found to be involved, there is no question they will be punished”.

As if world does not know the independence of your courts, especially when they have to decide on matters relating to religion and India. Was this not the same court that sentenced your brother on charges of hijacking a plane and then over turned its own decision?

Therefore, if you wish India to believe that your courts will do justice with people like Hafiz Saeed then you must be living in fools paradise.

When it comes to religion TTP do not beat about the bushes. Their simple formula is 'my way or high way'.

How ironic it is when Pakistanis celebrating day of solidarity with Kashmiris today and keep their mouths shut about mass graves in Baluchistan and Shia genocide in across Pakistan.
