'Mullah Omar pushing Pak Taliban to reconcile with govt.'

Islamabad, Sat, 26 Nov 2011 ANI

Islamabad, Nov 26 (ANI): Afghan Taliban leader Mullah Omar is pushing Pakistani militants based in the tribal areas to strike a peace deal with the government, and advised the chief of the Haqqani network to mediate between them, a source has revealed.


"We have received a message from Ameerul-Momineen that there should be an end to our activities inside Pakistan ...he wants us to make peace with the government and focus on Afghanistan against infidels," the Express Tribune quoted a Taliban associate, as saying.


However, it is not clear as of now when and how the terror leader had sent his message.


At least two Taliban affiliates, one in Miramshah, North Waziristan and the other in Wana, South Waziristan, said that communication between representatives of Mullah Omar and Pakistani militants took place in an Arab country this Ramazan.


But a tribal elder, who claimed to have knowledge about the ongoing talks, said that the son of a slain Afghan militant leader came to Waziristan as Mullah Omar's representative.


The young messenger travelled from Kandahar to South Waziristan, the stronghold of the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) TTP, immediately after Ramazan and held meetings with members of a powerful shura that takes policy decisions for Pakistani militant groups, he added.


In September, Pakistan's top political and military leadership had expressed desire to open peace talks with its 'own people' operating from the country's tribal areas.


Since almost half a year now, Pakistani cities have been relatively calm, and life is reportedly returning to normalcy after years of violent attacks by the homegrown Taliban. (ANI)
