ISLAMABAD - In the backdrop of prevailing security situation in the country that has put a big question mark at the operational capacity of law enforcement agencies and the writ of the state, Senator Mian Raza Rabbani on Tuesday suggested the government to evolve a national strategy to surmount security challenges. In an open letter to the citizens of Pakistan, Rabbani has come up with an idea of establishment of a cell at federal level to create information coordination between law enforcement and intelligence agencies. He has suggested it at a time when all the law enforcement agencies and countrys spy agencies have no mechanism even to update database on killing of civilians in drone strikes. Rabbani also called for the implementation of Parliamentary resolutions and the recommendations besides a more pronounced role of the Parliament in policy making. Elaborating his proposed enhanced role of the Parliament in policy formulation, he suggested hearing before the Parliamentary committee on national security and defence committees of both houses on policy and briefings on meeting of military and political leadership with visitors from abroad. He also recommended the government to develop a national counter insurgency strategy with all stakeholders. He sought identification of commonality of approach with west on war against terrorism and rules of engagements with international forces in the conflict. He called upon the citizens and the state institutions to move out of the state of denial and accept realities, as they stood on the ground, and refrain from cover up. He urged the government to introduce the concept of Parliamentary accountability and to ensure Parliaments supremacy. He also suggested the government to take steps to dispel the impression of clash between various institutions besides amendment in anti-terror act 1997, particularly for the affected areas. He urged the government to identify internal and external groups and not to allow usage of Pakistani soil for support to terrorism. The Prime Minister should call a meeting of Ulema, Chief Ministers, IGPs and Director Generals ISI, MI and IB to build coordination in the effort against international terrorism, the letter said. It said the ban on proscribed organisations should strictly be implemented. The government, Rabbani said, needed to take the media and civil society into confidence to mobilise masses against internal terrorism in the form of rallies and political support. Foreign Office should be asked to take up massive press offensive in the foreign media, besides, briefing diplomats in Islamabad on the various steps being taken by government on a regular basis, Rabbani suggested the government. Rabbani also called upon the writers, intellectuals, poets, columnists, painters, artists, musicians, artisans, and folklorists should come forward and take part in building the counter narrative. All cultural, literary and educational institutions will have to play their pivootal role to combat terrorism. The actual intent of writing this letter, Rabbani said, is to provide a working paper to the nation to begin a national debate for the formulation of a counter narrative in which the State, its institutions and the citizenry struggle shoulder to shoulder towards progress. Rabbani also advised the citizens of the country to get united to safeguards countrys sovereignty and territorial integrity, besides identifying anti-state elements. In todays Pakistan we have reacted through verbal rhetoric, limited display of street power and Parliamentary resolution but to no avail. They all are actions in isolation, lacking ownership of the countrys citizens. It requires a Pakistani narrative in which the people feel they are fighting to protect their values, security and sovereignty, letter reads.
