Should we still hold dialogue with TTP?

Shows that how important is to make Pakistan, Gun Free. The government should control the Guns and Firearms very strictly. Cancel the licenses and be very very strict to enforce this to safeguard our next generations. PTI has an opportunity to bring this Gun Free culture in Pakistan.

very sad and tragic incident, PTI had lost another leader in less than one month period.

A very tragic incident,the departed soul may rest in peace and Allah may protect his family. The newly installed government in KPK and the incoming government at the centre should formulate an effective strategy to handle the menace of terrorism either through dialog or the use of force.
