Chief Minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Ameer Haider Khan Hoti has stated that militants are on the run and trying to hide as the people have turned against the militants. This is the first target that our government has achieved, he said. He was talking in an exclusive interview with Sunday Plus magazine of The Nation. He explained the situation with regard to militancy in the province and what goals his government has achieved in the last three years. 'There is need to narrow the trust deficit between Pakistan and its neighbouring countries. The external involvement in parts of FATA needs to be looked into, he added. 'There are external elements who are actively involved in destabilising the country. This fact has been proved, Hoti said while explaining the situation. He was of the view that the situation was very complex and had to be tackled carefully. 'We cannot have a complete normalcy in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, unless and until, we have a stable FATA. The situation, however, is not so simple. It is linked to Afghanistan. If there is peace in Afghanistan, there will be peace in Pakistan, Hoti said. About the situation in Karachi, Hoti was of the view that things can be controlled if all the communities living there join forces against anti-State elements. 'Karachi can be termed 'Mini Pakistan. Everywhere in the world cities are becoming multicultural. Many communities with different cultures and speaking different languages live together in harmony, he added. It is important to understand that the City does not belong to any particular community whether speaking Urdu or other languages like Sindhi, Pushto, Balochi and Punjabi. Karachi is a City for all communities, he said. 'They have to co-exist in peace as the hidden hands that are always bent to exploit a situation may become active again. All communities should foil their nefarious designs, Hoti added. (See details of the interview in todays Sunday Plus magazine)
