Army asked to protect civilians in Kurram Agency

Thursday, March 31, 2011

PARACHINAR: The Turi-Bangash tribal jirga has demanded the army to play their due role in maintaining peace in Kurram Agency and protecting the lives of the citizens who were being victimised by the militants in the tribal region. 

A large number of elders belonging to the Turi and Bangash tribes residing in the upper tehsil of Kurram Agency attended the jirga and asked the army to take stern action against those killing unarmed innocent civilians. 

Speaking on the occasion, the elders including Yousaf Turi, Muhammad Hasan, Shabir Bangash and others said it was the prime responsibility of the government and the security establishment to protect the lives and properties of the people. 

They said the government, however, kept complete mum over the poor law and order for the last four years and watched militancy silently when it was taking firm roots in the lower parts of Kurram Agency. They said the security forces while taking steps for durable peace in Kurram Agency must protect the road from Hangu to the Kurram Agency headquarters.
