Islamabad, Oct.3 (ANI): Former Pakistan President General Pervez Musharraf has said a multifaceted strategy is needed to deal with the Taliban effectively.
Musharraf, who is on a lecture tour of the US currently, said that while the Al-Qaeda should be eliminated from Pakistan by force, dealing with the Taliban would require a military, political and socio-economic approach.
Addressing students and delegates at Augustana College in Sioux Falls, Musharraf underlined the fact that the Taliban was a widespread organization with no central command.
"The Taliban is not a monolith, but rather a spread out organization with no single commander who could be removed for the command structure to be destroyed," The Nation quoted Musharraf, as saying. (ANI)
