MOHMAND: Participants of a jirga emphasised here on Thursday that they wanted peace and would stand up against whoever disturbed peace in their region.

The peace jirga of different political parties being held in Mohmand tribal district will continue till Aug 22.

“We are against unrest. We will stand up against whoever disturbs the peace in our region because we have not recovered from the losses suffered in the last war of terror,” said speakers at the jirga.

A tribal elder said they would never allow another war to be imposed on their region.

The participants also demanded the arrest of killers of two brothers who were martyred in Saeed Khan Kor area of Safi tehsil last week.

They said that all Khasadars should be absorbed in the KP police.

The elders said the security forces and tribal people had rendered countless sacrifices for restoration of peace and they would not allow anyone to sabotage the peaceful environment.

In the end, a peace walk was also held from Mohmand Press Club to Ghalanai Bazaar Chowk.
