    Your message about Taliban is very confusing. We need clarity of vision from a leader. A leader needs to lead the nation and not follow the popular opinion. Tahirul Qadri was very clear that we invited drone attacks by harboring terrorists in our tribal areas. While you maintain that it is the drone attacks that forced the tribesmen to react to self-defense. The reality is Taliban has been terrorizing 10 years before drone started. I expect leader to lead not follow like you do. I expect a leader to be bold and honest. Just today another 5 women teacher got killed. How many more killing would it take for us to wake up and for you to lead?
