Islamabad, Apr 15 (ANI): If the Taliban refuse to disarm following the implementation of the Nizam-e-Adl Regulation, 2009, the Pakistan Government will take action after taking people into confidence, Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira has said.
He told reporters after attending a meeting at the Pakistan Electronic Media Regulatory Authority (PEMRA) that it was incumbent upon people of the area to come forward and play their role in ensuring peace.
He said the government's decision to implement the Nizam-e-Adl had foiled the designs of people trying to destabilise Pakistan.
The Daily Times quoted Kaira as saying that the situation in Buner was normal and would continue to improve with time.
He also said that the government was evolving a comprehensive plan to provide training to journalists.
Earlier, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan spokesman Muslim Khan had said that their men would surrender arms only after they see Sharia enforced in Malakand division of the Sawt Valley, after TNSM chief Sufi Muhammad has asked them to lay down arms after President Asif Zardari approved the Nizam-e-Adl Regulation.
