I really appreciate your great efforts. I completed my M. Phil. from National Defence University, Islamabad and my research topic was “Bringing Peace to the Troubled FATA Region – The Governance Perspective”. The research focuses on the historical evolution of the traditional governance system of FATA and how it has been the major reason for the current turmoil; how it perpetuates the miseries of FATA people and establish the need to mainstream FATA through political, administrative , judicial and economic reforms. It discusses many myths developed over time that are frequently being used to maintain and reinforce the status quo. The thesis culminates with a wide range of recommendations.

Operation Zerb-e-Azb, which has resulted in the displacement of 900,000 people, will be successful. Operation Zerb-e-Azb is the result of previous Operation Rah-e-Nijat. It is because of Operation Rah-e-Nijat that TTP and Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan moved from South Waziristan to North Waziristan. Now I am waiting for the next area where operation will be launched against the Taliban who ran away from the current Operation Zerb-e-Azb. Taliban left the area before the IDPs left their homes.

The tireless efforts of different groups and forums for FATA reforms are appreciated and it is hoped that if the tribal people put together their individual efforts on a single platform, it will become a powerful voice.
