Why ignore Parachinar?

Saturday, May 23, 2009

While the government is operating against extremists in Swat and adjacent areas, many areas in FATA need the same attention also where people have been taken hostage for a long time. One such area is Kurram Agency and specifically Parachinar — where the population has been held hostage for many months by the Taliban who have blocked the main road that leads to Peshawar. A TV channel just the other day reported that several lives had been lost in the town because of an acute shortage of medicines precipitated by the blockade. The government is requested to also deal with the extremists of Kurram Agency and Parachinar.
