There has been much discussion about the drone attacks and their effects on the people of Waziristan and the tribal areas of Pakistan. Although Pakistan is an ally of America in the war against terror, for the last four years the drone attacks have increased by the American officials in the tribal areas of Pakistan. Being supportive of the American cause and war against terror, the Pakistan government has sacrificed a lot. Unfortunately, America continues to stress a “do more” policy.
The people of Pakistan are against the American drone policy as they think that a lot of innocent people have been killed by these drones. No matter what people of Pakistan, American officials never give importance to the feelings of the Pakistani people. This has heated the feeling of hate among the people of Pakistan against America.
The Western media is unaware of the current situation of the tribal areas of Pakistan. Someone has to show the true image of the people of tribal areas. There are a few segments that are extremist but not all. To show the real picture of Waziristan and tribal areas, a peace march was conducted by a Pakistani leading Political party PTI (Pakistan tahreek-e-Insaaf), lead by the chairman of party Mr.Imran Khan.
Imran Khan, the chairman of party was stressing not to kill the innocent people since the first drone attack. He has invited people from the West namely journalists, media personel and social activists, to come to Pakistan and support his peace march to show the real image of these people. A huge number of people gathered for this peace march.
This march has opened up a debate in the world about the drone attacks, and the American policy against the terrorists. Many media persons have started raising questions against this policy, and the people from the West have witnessed that not all the people are extremists there.
You can’t destroy so many places in search of militants. Ther people in Waziristan are in a worse situation as there is no law and order in that area now. The peace march was conducted not to show the political power by the party but is to show the world that people of Waziristan are innocent and America must review its policy on drone attacks. A peaceful protest will be held on October 26, 2012 in the USA during the UN general assembly to stop the drone attacks in Pakistan.
After this march, there will be many polls created on social media websites about the drone attacks. The people of Pakistan want America to stop the drone attacks and stop killing innocent people. The attacks will not stop the militancy in country, but they will increase the anger of the people of Waziristan.
