PESHAWAR: A large number of students and tribal elders from different parts of North Waziristan Agency staged a demonstration to protest a bomb blast the other day at Mir Ali that killed six civilians.

The protesters said that they have suffered miseries of displaced life and sacrificed their near and dears and their property was destroyed just to see peace restored to the agency. The protesters chanted slogans against the government and asked it to fix responsibilities for the security breach.

“Despite our years of hardship and sacrifices, the government has completely failed to bring peace to the area and yesterday blast is clear example its failure,” said Zartaj Wazir.

The protesters said that Mir Ali was completely cleared of militants during Zarb-e-Azb operation. “Yesterday’s suicide blast has shattered our trust on ‘improved’ law and order in the agency,” said Khanzeb Mehsud. The government should not expect anything from us as we would not be able to spend years of displacement, he said.

The protesters demanded of the government to take notice of security breach and ensure that such incidents would not take place in future.
