As soon as the Taliban was established in Afghanistan, now Pakistan has become worried about the terrorist organization Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) operating here. Till now TTP was helping Taliban in Afghanistan. Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Sheikh Rashid said that talks have been held with the Taliban in this regard. They have been asked not to allow the soil of Afghanistan to become the home of TTP activities.
TTP commander released from prisons in Afghanistan
It is noteworthy that recently the commanders of TTP have been released from prisons in Afghanistan. These include Maulana Fakir Muhammad, former deputy chief of TTP. Terrorist organization TTP and IS terrorists are currently maintaining their bases in Nuristan and Nigar in Afghanistan. In the past, Pakistan used to cooperate with America only because of the fear of Taliban and TTP. Now the situations have changed.
Who is Tehreek-e-Taliban
Of all the terrorist organizations that have come into existence in Pakistan so far, Tehreek-e-Taliban is the most dangerous terrorist organization in Pakistan. This organization claimed responsibility for the attack on Malala Yousafzai. This terrorist organization did not miss to target even innocent children. Actually, Tehreek-e-Taliban started its roots in Pakistan at the same time when many terrorists were hiding in the tribal areas of Pakistan after fleeing from Afghanistan after US action in 2002. When action started against these terrorists, Pakistani army started facing opposition in Swat Valley. Many insurgent groups began to flourish in the tribal areas.
Pakistan blacklisted in 2008
Terrorist organization Tehreek-e-Taliban was blacklisted by Pakistan in 2008. Tehreek-e-Taliban has carried out several major attacks in Pakistan in the last decade. The biggest stronghold of this terrorist organization is Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. It is the home state of Pakistan PM Imran Khan. Recently, Tehreek-e-Taliban killed 13 people by attacking a bus of Chinese engineers in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. Not only this, a day before this attack, the Pakistani army was attacked in the same state and killed one of their captains and a jawan.
TTP terrorists can infiltrate into Pakistan
Imran Khan is apprehensive that if the violence in Afghanistan reaches its peak, then in the guise of refugees, fighters of many terrorist organizations including TTP may infiltrate into Pakistan. For this reason, the Pakistani army has also increased the security of the border with Afghanistan. However, due to less resources, there are many areas between the two countries, where there is a lack of monitoring.
