He could imprison whoever he liked for three years without having to offer justification. Imtiaz Gul an expert on the FATA believes “The main reason for the popularity of successive Islamist movements in the tribal areas stems from the draconian system of the FCR… the search for a fair justice system and the craving for equal citizenship has come to be synonymous with sharia” (The Most Dangerous Place: Pakistan’s Lawless Frontier p 53) Many Islamist groups in fact claim the role of dispenser of justice not only because they purportedly redress the wrongs done to the downtrodden but also because they combat inequalities inherited from a tribal order transformed a quasi feudal system under the British This was one of their justifications for the recent assassinations of maliks who have traditionally supported the cause of Pashtun nationalism inherited from Abdul Ghaffar Khan In the 1980s Islamist movements began to prosper in the FATA because of the anti-Soviet jihad At times up to 40000 people crossed the Durand Line daily at Torkham in the Khyber agency one of the border crossing points and in 1988 104 of the 278 refugee tented villages in the Pashtun areas were in the FATA (“Demographic Reporting on Afghan Refugees in Pakistan” Nancy Duprée) Thus a sort of osmosis took place closely meshing the FATA movements and the Afghan jihad a form of integration first reflected in the development of new madrasas Pakistani jihadist groups also set up their headquarters and their training camps in Wana South Waziristan and in Mir Ali North Waziristan and on the Afghan side in Khost where al-Qaeda had camps in the late 1980s as hundreds if not thousands of “Arabs” (coming from the Middle East) and Eurasians (mostly Uzbeks) regrouped in the FATA and Eastern Afghanistan A segment of the FATA youth was thus drawn into the jihad in the 1980s Nek Muhammad from South Waziristan is a case in point He came from a poor family like many of his fellow combatants and joined the Taliban in the mid-1990s He ended up commanding 3000 men in Bagram where he fought the “American invasion” in November 2001 Returning to Kalosha South Waziristan with a fleet of six all-terrain pickups Nek was someone to be reckoned with As funds poured in with al-Qaeda fighters retreating into his territory Nek grew richer But the oldest ally of Al Qaeda was Jalaluddin Haqqani whose network based in North Waziristan was associated with Arabs (including Ben Laden) from the mid-1980s onwards For years the Pakistan army tried to negotiate with the Islamists of the FATA The first agreement was signed with Nek Muhammad in 2004 in Shakai South Waziristan In exchange for his commitment to refrain from launching cross-border attacks in Afghanistan and to “register” foreign militants the Pakistan government agreed to release a large number of prisoners and granted financial compensation to the victims of military operations Due to lack of compliance — the clause stipulating that foreign militants be registered was indeed naive — military operations resumed within weeks But they soon resulted in new rounds of talks leading to another agreement signed in February 2005 this time by Baitullah Mehsud who had fought in the Haqqani network and then succeeded Nek Muhammed killed in 2004 by a drone attack Mehsud headed what was to become known as the Pakistan Taliban in 2007 In fact till 2007 the Pakistan army contented itself with striking deals whose terms very similar to those described above were never observed Things started to change in the late 2000s when the army was deployed in South Waziristan in the Swat Valley and in several other places The army stepped up operations in the Pashtun areas after General Kayani became chief of army staff in 2007 About 211of them reportedly took place from 2007 to 2010 But losses were heavy estimated at around 2300 Consequently the army preferred to refrain from deploying ground troops and left the matter in American hands without specifically saying so It was in this context that the US launched massive drone strikes But this technique was not effective enough and became problematic after politicians denounced this violation of the country’s sovereignty during the 2013 election campaign After becoming prime minister Nawaz Sharif claimed that he wanted to reach a negotiated settlement with the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) After months of trying to hold talks the government had to admit that the TTP was either too divided or not sincere about meaning business In early June the attack against Karachi airport sealed the fate for talks and enabled the army to take the lead again and attack North Waziristan This area had been spared so far primarily because it is the stronghold of the Haqqani network that has helped the ISI in Afghanistan — to gain some “strategic depth” in the 1980s and to fight the Indian presence in the 2000s The deployment of troops in this area suggests that the army has realised that Islamists — including the Haqqani network — pose an existential threat to the country and that they have to be decimated now before the Nato forces withdraw fully from Afghanistan If this is the case the Pakistani army which has traditionally considered India its priority target is on the verge of a paradigm shift But is it not too late Certainly the army has destroyed training camps and killed allegedly about 400 militants in one month but many others have fled to Afghanistan which seems ironically to be a safe haven for the TTP If so these fighters may continue to strike from the other side of the Durand Line for a long time And then Nawaz Sharif who has been sidelined by the army initiative may stage a comeback and claim that negotiations are needed again (The writer is senior research fellow at CERI-Sciences Po/ CNRS Paris professor of Indian

Pacquiao said the decision against him Sunday was unfair (Source: Reuters) Top News The World Boxing Organization will re-score the Manny Pacquiao-Jeff Horn welterweight title fight because of the contentious unanimous decision awarded to the Australian challenger but there is no plan to change the result The WBO was responding to a Philippines government department’s request to review the fight after Pacquiao said the decision against him Sunday was unfair The Philippines Games and Amusements Board (GAB) said it based the request on protecting boxing’s integrity citing possible miscalls by the referee and judges But the WBO reiterated its only hope of revoking the fight judges’ decision rests on proving fraud in match officiating “I would be very grateful if the GAB can provide any evidence indicating fraud or violation of law” WBO President Francisco Valcarcel said in a letter to the GAB dated Thursday “The purpose of this review is to be able to give the fans certainty of who was the winner of the bout even though we do not have the power to reverse the decision of the judges” The fight at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium was scored 117-111 by Waleksa Roldan and 115-113 each by Chris Flores and Ramon Cerdan with Roldan’s score coming in for most criticism In Manila Philippines GAB chairman Abraham Kahlil Mitra welcomed the WBO’s decision to carry out a review saying that even if that won’t change the outcome of the contentious bout it will send a strong signal that any sign of leniency abuse of authority or wrongdoing would not be tolerated “We’re happy with that” Mitra told The Associated Press “Our feeling is if you’re quiet you’ll get abused but if you complain they’ll be careful … Manny is a senator a champion but was like wrestled there abused by them If it can be done to him it can be done to any other Filipino boxer” Valcarcel said five anonymous judges will review the bout assigning their own scores to rounds “Then we will tabulate the results to ascertain clearly which rounds each fighter won using an average scale based on 60 80 and 100 percent” Valcarcel said “This means that three of the five officials have to agree to determine which fighter won the round” Valcarcel supported the judges who have each scored hundreds of fights “The officials who participated in this fight are all professional distinguished honest and
