The ringleaders, of the rally Abdul Khaliq, Nizam ud Din, Bahader khan and malik Muhammad khan said in their addresses that Ahmadzai Wazir had given colossal sacrifices for the integrity of nation during several operations conducted in Wana.
They said that first military operations were launched against the foreign terrorists in Wana. They added that there was complete peace in the entire tribal when ill-fated Wana was burning due to war on terror.
