Minus Altaf formula strengthened the band terrorist outfits

TTP's secret plan to impose a control over Karachi is being exposed.
 The banned terrorist organisation Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan chalked out a comprehensive plan against the founder and leader of the Muttahida Quami Movement (MQM).
In January 2013, the TTP blew a remote-controlled IED near Jinnah Ground (Karachi) just to intimidate the activists of the MQM.
In August 2016, the TTP had following The TTP intelligence wing’s report, postponed the promulgation of a decree to declare Altaf Hussain liable to elimination after a fierce military crackdown on the MQM.
For the first time ever, the revelations of utmost pivotal importance based on the secret activities of the banned TTP network in Karachi are being made public.

The TTP terrorists who hide them in safe haven in Afghanistan continue to sabotage peace and tranquillity in Pakistan through their terror attacks and suicide bombings. They have saliently heightened their terrorist activities this year. The banned terrorist outfit, TTP, has claimed that during the first quarter of this current year have made total 117 attacks. The Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa was primarily their focus of terror activities with 107 terror attacks in total in first quarter of the year. In addition, they attacked Balochistan 11 times. Conversely, they carried 3 and 1 attacks in Punjab and in Karachi respectively. In Karachi, the Karachi police headquarters was rocked with terror attack. According to reliable sources, the outlawed TTP has adopted a policy of very few attacks to keep its network of sleeper cells in Karachi secret and to avoid the reach of the security forces, behind which a specific strategy is driven. On April 7, 2023, in the meeting of the National Security Council at the Prime Minister's House, the recent wave of terrorism was described as the result of the previous government's soft corner and thoughtless policy with the banned TTP, which is in sheer contradiction to general perception and beliefs of the people. This thought at the government level paved ways for the safe return of the TTP terrorists. Not only this insane thought wreaked havoc on the people but the government had also released a large number of these TTP’s dangerous terrorists who were nabbed and were in jails. Interestingly, this was done on the pretext of CBM – Confidence Building Measures – alas with the inhuman and savage terrorists. Simultaneously, the government also reached to a point that serious crackdown would be unleashed against these TTP terrorists. This was decided in a meeting of the NSC - National Security Council. However, those who made that decision of lethal crackdown on the TTP were already divided and a difference of opinion was recorded on the sides of the NSC and the Standing Committee – SC - on Foreign Affairs of the National Assembly. National Democratic Movement chairman and Foreign Affairs SC chairman Mohsin Dawar’s statement was a blatant criticism on NSC hand-out. He said that the decision which came out in form of news has raised serious concerns on safety of the Pashtun. In the NSC meeting, it was discussed to ignore the root causes of terrorism, Afghan policy and Project Taliban to launch the so-called comprehensive military operation. This means that since 2007 going back to the so-called operations between 2014 and the policies of the good and bad Taliban, the Pashtuns have suffered massive massacres, destruction and displacement due to this anti-Pashtun policy and they will not tolerate it now. The NSC meeting mentioned the previous government's mistake in allowing TTP to enter KPK. This is a mistake, due to which hundreds of people, civilians and security personnel were killed. The question is that in a country where elected prime ministers can be brought before a tribunal for minor charges, why security agencies cannot be brought before a tribunal for such a major security breach? Why the officials are responsible for security lapses not held accountable? The Pashtun are also deeply concerned about the prospect of another "war on terror" on their soil as part of a new Great Game between the major powers. The Pashtun will oppose and resist the imposition of this war which is a continuation of forty-three years old Afghan war which a land of the Pashtun. The Pashtun are still mourning those killed in past operations. The internally displaced people from the KPK mainly the Pashtun have not yet been rehabilitated and compensated for the huge colossal losses they suffered during the so-called operations. It is also surprising that the NSC did not mention the need to implement the National Action Plan. This lapse is a manifestation of the revival of the previous policy of so-called operations which actually proved counterproductive. We demand that the state's pro-Taliban Afghan policy should be completely changed, the National Action Plan should be fully implemented and Pushtoons should be taken in confidence in their matters of vital interest. 
One of the reasons for the reaction of National Democratic Movement is that the government has not made an effective effort to take the public opinion into account at the national level, although the unity of all stakeholders is an indispensable process for full success against terrorists in KPK or at Pak-Afghan border areas. Unfortunately, the same policy is being followed in Karachi, the largest city of Pakistan. Karachi is the most important city for the outfit TTP where TTP still generating huge funds from different sources. In Karachi, the TTP has a salient number of its sleeper cells along with number of facilitators who are engaged in clandestine activities. In its early years, when the TTP issued fatwas against the Pakistan Army, security forces, intelligence agencies, police and media, on that occasion, among all the political leaders, the TTP named MQM leader Altaf Hussain as the first target. According to the TTP insiders, when Altaf Hussain started a vigorous campaign of his statements against Talibanisation, on this occasion he appealed to the military leadership that his 300,000 youths in the urban areas of Sindh should resist Talibanisation. The TTP leadership was threatened by this situation that if there was any compromise between Altaf Hussain and the security forces, the strong network of the MQM in urban areas would be a huge knocking out punch for TTP's sleeper cells. Therefore, the TTP leadership first set off a remote-controlled explosion near Jinnah Ground Karachi on January 1, 2013 to intimidate the activists of the MQM. As a result of which four MQM workers were martyred while more than 45 sustained injuries. Later, a committee named "Altaf Hussain Monitoring Committee" was formed under the direction of the Central Advisory Commission of the TTP. After two years of research, this committee compiled all the statements, writings and speeches of Altaf Hussain in a book form. Then the TTP fatwa committee worked on this book and declared MQM founder Altaf Hussain an infidel, apostate and liable to execution. The TTP insiders revealed that when the decision was taken to release the book and fatwa prepared by the TTP against Altaf Hussain, the TTP Intelligence Wing submitted a report, which said that there has been a lot of friction between Altaf Hussain and the military leadership and the state institutions are working on the Minus Altaf formula, so if TTP's fatwa is issued on this occasion, it is feared that it will not only increase the popularity of Altaf Hussain but after gaining international attention, there may be amicable reconciliation between Altaf Hussain and the military leadership which will prove counterproductive for TTP's monopoly in Karachi. According to sources, the TTP leadership suspended the issuance of the fatwa prepared against Altaf Hussain on this report of the TTP Intelligence Wing. Thus, the ban on Altaf Hussain's writings, speeches and photos in 2015 and the crackdown against MQM in August 2016 paved the way for the TTP to strengthen its sleeper cells in Karachi. There is no doubt that despite the minus Altaf formula, MQM Pakistan has not yet achieved the popularity that Altaf Hussain still enjoys, so if there is any reconciliation for the sake of national interest on this occasion, then the TTP would find no place to hide in Karachi.
