Taliban closing in on Islamabad: Fazl

* JUI-F chief says Swat peace deal ‘based on defeat, not success’ 
* Khawaja Asif asks government to revisit Swat deal

By Zulfiqar Ghuman

ISLAMABAD: JUI-F chief Fazlur Rehman warned in a speech in the National Assembly on Wednesday that the Taliban were closing in on Islamabad.

“You talk about Swat and Buner, but according to my information, they have reached Kala Dhaka and Tarbela. And if they continue advancing, there will be only Margalla Hills between them and the federal capital,” he said. He blamed the “civil war-like situation” on former president Pervez Musharraf’s decision to join the US-led war on terror. He said the fallout would also affect India and China.

The Swat peace deal was “based on defeat, not success”, he said. Fazl said there was no writ of the state in the NWFP.

PML-N’s Khawaja Asif urged the government to revisit the deal with Sufi Muhammad saying the Taliban had made public their intention of taking over the whole of Pakistan.
