The Pakistani newspaper Dawn wrote in its editorial on Tuesday that expecting the Afghan Taliban to suppress the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistani (TTP) is an unrealistic expectation.

According to the newspaper, the Afghan Taliban will not take armed action against their “ideological comrades.”

On Sunday, Mohsin Naqvi, Pakistan’s Interior Minister, requested the Afghan Taliban to hand over Pakistani Taliban leaders, including Noor Wali Mehsud, to Pakistan to “maintain friendly relations” with Islamabad.

The official stated that the Pakistani Taliban were responsible for the murder of five Chinese engineers in Pakistan.

In its editorial, Dawn wrote that the Afghan Taliban must take responsibility for terrorist threats from Afghan soil against Pakistan.

Dawn emphasized that it has been proven for Pakistan that terrorist groups, especially the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan, have safe havens in Afghanistan, but the Afghan Taliban denies this.

The newspaper wrote that despite evidence showing militant groups are active in Afghanistan, it is difficult to believe the Taliban’s stance.

Dawn noted that although the Pakistani government has made significant efforts to eliminate terrorist threats through official visits by its officials, elders, and scholars to Afghanistan, these efforts have not yielded positive results.

The newspaper suggested that the Pakistani government should adopt a different approach with the Taliban and its officials should cooperate with the Afghan Taliban to stop terrorist threats.

Dawn suggested that the Pakistani government should ask Mullah Hibatullah, the leader of the Taliban, to relocate the TTP to a place farther from the border.

Meanwhile, the newspaper also suggested that given the concerns of Central Asian countries about terrorist threats from Afghanistan, Pakistan should collaborate with China, Russia, and Iran to pressure the Taliban to take effective measures.

The Newspaper wrote that the Taliban’s eagerness for Chinese investment should be conditioned on preventing cross-border terrorism, and Pakistan must ensure no space for militants within its borders.

Since August 2021, insecurity in Pakistan has increased, with attacks on officials by militants, including TTP and BLA.
