Qari Abdul Hayee has been captured by Pakistani authorities. This guy has been a menace, causing the loss of hundreds of lives via terrorist actions under his direction and command. Pakistan military and security forces have apparently had enough, and managed to capture him.
What would be the reasons to negotiate with the Taliban or any of these radical Islamic groups that terrorize Pakistan citizens?
It appears that the Pakistan government military and security forces are intent on combating terrorism and terrorist organizations. That is why Pakistan is listed on America's ally ledger.
It seems to this observer that Islam has multiple personalities. At one extreme are the kind and warmhearted and at the other are the intolerant bloodthirsty radicals.
“Hayee was arrested during a targeted raid on University Road area and was taken to an undisclosed location for interrogation over recent Karachi and Quetta bombings by the paramilitary security forces.
On March 3, a car bomb attack killed at least 48 people and wounded 150 others in a Shia neighborhood in Karachi.”
“Pakistan arrests suspect in Daniel Pearl murder
Pakistani officials said Tuesday that their security forces had arrested Qari Abdul Hayee a suspect in the 2002 murder of Daniel Pearl, who was then the Wall Street Journal's South Asia bureau chief (NYT, Bloomberg, CNN, CBS/AP, ABC, AFP). Hayee, leader of the banned sectarian militant group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ), was arrested on Sunday night, and is also wanted for the deaths of Shi'a Muslims in attacks claimed by the LeJ.
The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) said in a video released Monday that they have "temporarily postponed" peace talks with the government, accusing the Pakistani government of not being serious about the negotiations (Dawn, The News, RFERL). In the video, Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan also warned Pakistanis about participating in the "un-Islamic democratic system which only serves the interests of infidels and enemies of Islam," specifically advising them to stay away from gatherings of the Pakistani People's Party, Muttahida Qaumi Movement, and the Awami National Party.
Pakistani airstrikes killed ten militants in Orakzai Agency on Monday, while local sources in the nearby Khyber Agency said the Taliban has pushed rival militant group Ansarul Islam (AI) out of its last bastions (Dawn, Dawn). Fighting between Taliban, AI, and Lashkar-e-Islam militants has forced hundreds of families to relocate to refugee camps or neighboring tribal agencies.”
