Experts ask government to adopt rehabilitation strategy for terrorists

* Speakers participate in last day of workshop on ‘Rehabilitation and Reintegration of the Taliban’

Staff Report

PESHAWAR: Experts specialising in reintegration of ideologically driven people recommended the government on Wednesday to adopt a rehabilitation strategy for detained terrorists.

The experts were speaking on the last day of a strategic workshop on ‘Rehabilitation and Reintegration of the Taliban’. The speakers stressed upon the need for marginalising terrorist ideologies in the society. FATA Additional Chief Secretary Habibullah Khan, Ghulam Dastgir Khan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Police Inspector General Malik Naveed, former Peshawar corps commander Lieutenant General (r) Hamid Khan, Malakand Commissioner Fazl Karim Khattak, Provincial Disaster Management Authority Director General Shakeel Qadir and former Khyber Pakhtunkhwa chief secretary Khalid Aziz also spoke on the occasion. They recommended that a sound communication strategy be formulated to tackle the influence of the ideology of terrorists.

The speakers also highlighted that a comprehensive strategy be adopted for promoting de-radicalisation of the detained terrorists and revising the curriculum of various subjects in educational institutions. They also called for building the capacity of law enforcement agencies and improving the governance structure including that of government departments to assist the implementation of policies after the military withdraws from the terrorism-hit areas.

Earlier, Dr Farooq, a religious scholar, informed the audience about Sabawoon, a rehabilitation centre established by the army in Swat to rehabilitate the arrested terrorists. He said that because of their physiotherapy and religious counselling, a majority of the terrorists have been rehabilitated but warned that anti-US sentiments still persisted in their minds. Home Secretary Akbar Khan informed the audience about the laws, which dealt with the handling of terror suspects while Malik Naveed gave a presentation on the contributions of police in the ongoing war on terrorism. He said that this war had to be won or it would spread to other parts of the country. Naveed stressed for the provision of speedy justice and execution of development projects in the affected areas.
