Fazlur Rehman, chief of his own faction of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam, on Wednesday opposed the military operation against the Taliban terrorists.

He said that only sincere and meaningful negotiations between the government and Taliban could bring peace in the country. Fazl said that his party was a voice of people and demanded to
maintain peace in the country through sincere talks with the Taliban, adding that military operation was not a solution for resolving issues in the country.
