The negotiation process initiated by Sheikh Gumi has left interested persons into two different categories.
The first are those who believe that peace and compromises are best done with negotiations. They commended the Sheikh for taking such a bold action and also invite other religious,political and elites to join him.
The second set of people are those who believe that under no guise should a terrorist be given audience to after taking lives of innocent people and rendering thousands homeless and hopeless.
Proudly and with a clear conscience, indeed and as a law-abiding citizen, I belong to the latter. Negotiation with any group that releases extreme terror to harmless people is obviously a short term approach and proves a sign of weakness and portrays those who have lost their lives and properties as laughing stock.
It is said that the terrorists have little or no knowledge of any religion, so it makes it possible for them to be comfortable to be murderers. Yes, it might be true. But that is a thinking of someone who refuses to speak with facts. There is retribution to all offenses in this Nation.
It doesn’t matter if you believe in the supernatural or not. Punishment has been rewarded to thousands by the court of law. Some with their lives and others ended in the prisons. Those who believe with the action of the the Sheikh should understand that there can never be a a newly formed constitution under an existing one.
In conclusion, I call on the Governments from all levels to see any desperado as nothing but a criminal. Hence, punishment must be carried out.
