” While the combined military operations going on is much commendable by me, I wish to state that the local, State and Federal Governments need to show more commitment to securing Zangon Kataf from the hands of organised killers.
Adding,” They should ensure that our agile, healthy and law-abiding youths are formed into vigilante groups and given the needful assistance to work with the security agencies. This is one of the best ways out of this bad situation.

” We may continue to suffer setbacks, but we shall bounce back to our old peace, and the pursuit of liberty and happiness adding, the best way to get back to that era of peace and progress is to vote at all levels for leaders who are opposed to the use of violence to subdue us and force us down.
“We must come together irrespective of tribe, religion and ideology and take a common position on our future if we must survive as one.” He reiterated.
