Of negotiations with jihadis

Not unless they give up violence

This is an archived blog post from The Acorn.

Amid reports of Syed Salahuddin, chief of the Pakistan-based United Jihad Council (the existence of which is testimony to how much of a FATWAT that country is) contemplating a return to the Kashmir valley, Wilson John warns against the danger of negotiating with terrorists.

It is nothing but perverted logic to argue, as some Indian academics and political leaders in Kashmir are doing, that the Indian government should not only invite Salahuddin for talks but also offer his group a unilateral and unconditional ceasefire. It is Salahuddin who should offer a ceasefire and lay down arms first.[Rediff]
