Gul who is affiliated to Militant leader Fazalullah's group in Matta was also involved in the manslaughter of five people.

Gulkhaiz | 11 years ago | Reply It is now an established fact that the large number of Talibans, particularly their leadership have made it to big cities. Seemingly it looks difficult to catch them. But they can be flushed out if we shun away the apathy towards common problem of society, and actively help in identifying the miscreants,amongst us, who disturb the peace in the name of religion. Like all mature societies we have to paricipate actively in kicking unwanted people out of our society.
Sadia Hussain | 11 years ago | Reply A successful military operation nevertheless points out towards the perturbing phenomena of militants hiding in large cosmopolitan cities. The operation has dislodged my high-profile targets the intelligence agencies must try to apprehend such militants while they are on a run as once they enter a city of 16 million people the hunt would be a lot trickier. The recent arrest of Mian Gul Saeed is indeed a tactical victory.
