ISLAMABAD - Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F), coalition partner of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), expressing complete divergence of opinion on the government's anti-terrorism measures, has said that serious strategy on talks with the Pakistan Taliban is missing in the proposed draft of the policy.

JUI-F chief Maulana Fazlur Rahman has said that serious strategy on talks with the Pakistan Taliban is missing in the proposed draft of policy, as only administrative measures will not effectively end terrorism.

According to his spokesperson, Maulana Fazlur Rahman was commenting on the reports about the proposed draft of the anti-terrorism policy prepared by the government of Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who is currently on a visit to China.

The spokesman said that there is no clear map on talks with the Taliban in the proposed document and said that it should have contained a comprehensive strategy and clear roadmap on the talks with the Taliban.

The spokesman said that emphasis on administrative measures in absence of political measures will not be a real policy option on combating the menace of terrorism.

He maintained, "If the state wants to take administrative measures, it can, but serious and meaningful dialogue should be part of the serious anti-terrorism strategy".

The Maulana welcomed the proposed all parties conference of Mian Nawaz Sharif and hoped any new conference should not sabotage the already arrived national consensus on negotiations with the Taliban.

The spokesman said that given the JUI-F is invited to the proposed all parties conference due to be held on June 12, it would make recommendations in the light of joint resolutions of the Parliament and the decisions of the last all parties conference organised by the PPP-led government.

The spokesman was of the view that colourful language filled with jargons in the proposed document should be avoided.
