Kabul (BNA) There is no doubt that presently the majority of extremist groups’ leaders are living in Pakistan and widely supported by the powerful intelligence service of that country.
The assassination of Osama the most prominent Al-qaeda leader in a site close to a Pakistani military base, made it clear that Pakistan is a stronghold of all terrorist and extremist groups who have been funded, trained and sent to Afghanistan for carrying terrorist attacks.
This is ISI that leads, directs and organizes terrorist operation not Taliban.
Taliban are nothing but brained washed mercenaries who by launching terrorist attacks according to direct order of ISI agents kill Afghan innocent men, women and children and destroy their country.
Having such excessive influence on extremist and terrorist groups, it is ISI not the government of Pakistan can play a major role in bringing peace and stability in to Afghanistan.
So, all involved parties, who honestly strive for ensuring peace in Afghanistan, considering the grave role of this notorious Pakistani intelligence, should deal with it not the civilian government of that country, because the army and ISI say the final word there. 
Without doubt if the Pakistani government had control over its army particularly its intelligence service could play a significant role in bringing peace to Afghanistan.
Annually Pakistan receives millions of dollars from international community specially US for counter terrorism campaign; therefore they are not honest for complete eradication of terrorists’ hideouts in their territory, because they use it as a means of blackmail.
Because of the facts mentioned above, in spite of that the Pakistan and Afghan governments held several sessions and negotiated and made commitments for removing the crisis and restoring peace in to Afghanistan but all were in vain.
The last tripartite summit of Afghanistan, Pakistan and UK in London, also insisted on acceleration of peace process in Afghanistan and Pakistani side committed to cooperate for ensuring peace in Afghanistan but so far had done nothing because it is incapable for meeting its commitments. As I mentioned earlier, the army and ISI are the real decision makers in that country.
The political analysts of the situation in the region believe, now it is the time, the government of Pakistan along with its army and intelligence service, work honestly for accelerating and ensuring peace in Afghanistan is in interest of both Afghan and Pakistani people; otherwise Pakistan itself will be the prey of terrorism and extremism in near future.
