” In view of these restrictions, He and other youth leaders like the Parmars, He could imprison whoever he liked for three years without having to offer justification. Imtiaz Gul an expert on the FATA believes “The main reason for the popularity of successive Islamist movements in the tribal areas stems from the draconian system of the FCR… the search for a fair justice system and the craving for equal citizenship has come to be synonymous with sharia” (The Most Dangerous Place: Pakistan’s Lawless Frontier p 53) Many Islamist groups in fact claim the role of dispenser of justice not only because they purportedly redress the wrongs done to the downtrodden but also because they combat inequalities inherited from a tribal order transformed a quasi feudal system under the British This was one of their justifications for the recent assassinations of maliks who have traditionally supported the cause of Pashtun nationalism inherited from Abdul Ghaffar Khan In the 1980s Islamist movements began to prosper in the FATA because of the anti-Soviet jihad At times up to 40000 people crossed the Durand Line daily at Torkham in the Khyber agency one of the border crossing points and in 1988 104 of the 278 refugee tented villages in the Pashtun areas were in the FATA (“Demographic Reporting on Afghan Refugees in Pakistan” Nancy Duprée) Thus a sort of osmosis took place closely meshing the FATA movements and the Afghan jihad a form of integration first reflected in the development of new madrasas Pakistani jihadist groups also set up their headquarters and their training camps in Wana South Waziristan and in Mir Ali North Waziristan and on the Afghan side in Khost where al-Qaeda had camps in the late 1980s as hundreds if not thousands of “Arabs” (coming from the Middle East) and Eurasians (mostly Uzbeks) regrouped in the FATA and Eastern Afghanistan A segment of the FATA youth was thus drawn into the jihad in the 1980s Nek Muhammad from South Waziristan is a case in point He came from a poor family like many of his fellow combatants and joined the Taliban in the mid-1990s He ended up commanding 3000 men in Bagram where he fought the “American invasion” in November 2001 Returning to Kalosha South Waziristan with a fleet of six all-terrain pickups Nek was someone to be reckoned with As funds poured in with al-Qaeda fighters retreating into his territory Nek grew richer But the oldest ally of Al Qaeda was Jalaluddin Haqqani whose network based in North Waziristan was associated with Arabs (including Ben Laden) from the mid-1980s onwards For years the Pakistan army tried to negotiate with the Islamists of the FATA The first agreement was signed with Nek Muhammad in 2004 in Shakai South Waziristan In exchange for his commitment to refrain from launching cross-border attacks in Afghanistan and to “register” foreign militants the Pakistan government agreed to release a large number of prisoners and granted financial compensation to the victims of military operations Due to lack of compliance — the clause stipulating that foreign militants be registered was indeed naive — military operations resumed within weeks But they soon resulted in new rounds of talks leading to another agreement signed in February 2005 this time by Baitullah Mehsud who had fought in the Haqqani network and then succeeded Nek Muhammed killed in 2004 by a drone attack Mehsud headed what was to become known as the Pakistan Taliban in 2007 In fact till 2007 the Pakistan army contented itself with striking deals whose terms very similar to those described above were never observed Things started to change in the late 2000s when the army was deployed in South Waziristan in the Swat Valley and in several other places The army stepped up operations in the Pashtun areas after General Kayani became chief of army staff in 2007 About 211of them reportedly took place from 2007 to 2010 But losses were heavy estimated at around 2300 Consequently the army preferred to refrain from deploying ground troops and left the matter in American hands without specifically saying so It was in this context that the US launched massive drone strikes But this technique was not effective enough and became problematic after politicians denounced this violation of the country’s sovereignty during the 2013 election campaign After becoming prime minister Nawaz Sharif claimed that he wanted to reach a negotiated settlement with the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) After months of trying to hold talks the government had to admit that the TTP was either too divided or not sincere about meaning business In early June the attack against Karachi airport sealed the fate for talks and enabled the army to take the lead again and attack North Waziristan This area had been spared so far primarily because it is the stronghold of the Haqqani network that has helped the ISI in Afghanistan — to gain some “strategic depth” in the 1980s and to fight the Indian presence in the 2000s The deployment of troops in this area suggests that the army has realised that Islamists — including the Haqqani network — pose an existential threat to the country and that they have to be decimated now before the Nato forces withdraw fully from Afghanistan If this is the case the Pakistani army which has traditionally considered India its priority target is on the verge of a paradigm shift But is it not too late Certainly the army has destroyed training camps and killed allegedly about 400 militants in one month but many others have fled to Afghanistan which seems ironically to be a safe haven for the TTP If so these fighters may continue to strike from the other side of the Durand Line for a long time And then Nawaz Sharif who has been sidelined by the army initiative may stage a comeback and claim that negotiations are needed again (The writer is senior research fellow at CERI-Sciences Po/ CNRS Paris professor of Indian

featuring in her sixth Wimbledon having never managed to get out of the second round so far (Source: Reuters) Top News The prospect of Johanna Konta becoming the first British woman to win Wimbledon in 40 years is certain to generate plenty of focus on the world number seven as next month’s tournament draws close But Konta who is playing in the Aegon Classic at Edgbaston this week says that she will not be embracing any of the likely hype and intends to try to prepare as normal – inside her “bubble” Virginia Wade was the last British woman to win a Wimbledon singles title in 1977 “The things that we focus on with my team are very much to stay in my own process and bubble my approach to my game and my approach to my career doesn’t change according to what is happening outside of me” Konta said on Monday when asked about how she intends to cope with the expectations that accompany her bid this year “We are just staying very much in the process and also just keeping things in perspective – I am out here just trying to be the best player that I can be” she said Konta will be featuring in her sixth Wimbledon having never managed to get out of the second round so far But the 26-year-old who was reached the final of the Nottingham WTA event before losing on Sunday to Croatian Donna Vekic is certainly expected to mount a more serious challenge this year Konta began the year winning her second WTA title with a win in Sydney and reached the quarter-finals in the Australian Open and then won the biggest title of her career in Miami to establish herself inside the top 10 players in the world The clay season was less fruitful with a first round exit at Roland Garros but Konta is hoping that grass will bring glory “I think everyone looks to get as much time as possible on the grass going into Wimbledon – it’s a short season and for me I am just looking to play as many as I can and adapt well going into Wimbledon But I also want to enjoy each one of them on their own as well” she said Her plan is to play Eastbourne after Edgbaston and – if results go well – that could mean three solid weeks of tournament tennis in the build-up to Wimbledon But the Australia-born Konta is not worried about the risk of over-playing “I am not anticipating that no I train very hard to be able to withstand a lot of matches I think if we are at that stage then that is also a very good problem” she said Wimbledon looms though and while she insists she will stick to her “process” she admits that she enjoys the big stages “I love playing in front of people whether the crowd is for me or against me the most important thing is we are entertainers people pay to come and watch us perform and give them a good match That is always a nice feeling when people are around and watch you give your best” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top Newsbut in turn,at the same time,another senior leader objected.
