( Way Forward )
Conflict victims are women, youth and children
besides men. In one week, around 450,000 victims
have shifted to Bannu and other cities of Khyber
Pakhtunkhwa. Government, political parties, civil
society and international organizations have chalk
out an integrated support program for the IDPs.
Pakistan Army has set up 3 camps but people prefer
to live with their relatives and in rented houses.
Chairman PTI, Imran Khan has demanded Rs.6
billion for relief and rehabilitation of victims.
Government and media know that the life of every
human is significant besides economy. Crime rate in
North Waziristan was low in 2013. Military
operation was hastily conceived. Blame shifting and
point scoring serve nothing. Bahria Town is a role
model. Students of Peshawar University and Islamia
College must come forward as volunteers. For
decent lifestyle at par with international standards,
IRD and UNDP must establish UN Cities throughout
