MINGORA: Jamaat-i-Islami provincial chief and member of Taliban negotiation committee Prof Mohammad Ibrahim said here on Sunday that there were a lot of hurdles in holding direct dialogue between the government and Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan.
However, the negotiation committee would continue its struggle to assist both the sides to achieve the objective of restoration of peace, he added.
“We are struggling to remove mistrust between both the sides so that peace process can be accelerated,” Mr Ibrahim told journalists after addressing a donor conference, organised by local chapter of Jamaat-i-Islami.
He said that government and Taliban were showing seriousness in the talks but lack of trust was the major obstacle that had been causing difficulties since the peace process was initiated.
Mr Ibrahim said that militancy didn’t surface in days and weeks rather the country had been facing law and order situation for the last 12 years. He alleged that the policy of Pervez Musharraf created law and order situation in the country.
The JI leader said that security forces should play their role in the peace process. They started the war and they should shoulder major responsibilities for its peaceful end, he added. Mr Ibrahim said that there was consensus among all political parties that peace should be restored through dialogue. The All-Party Conference, held on September 9, 2013, also empowered the prime minister to take steps for resolving the issue through peaceful means, he added.
