BARA: Former Member National Assembly Al-Haaj Shah Jee Gul Afridi has said the people of erstwhile Fata should be thankful to Almighty Allah for end to a dark period after merger with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

In a message for his followers at the social media, Shah Jee said in no part of the world people braved curfews for eight to ten years like Fata. He said the people of the tribal area saw very difficult times. He said imposition of Section 144 is a trivial thing as compared to curfew. He said Section 144 only brings ban on display or arms, public rallies and pillion riding etc. which are easily manageable for people, while curfew is a very difficult thing.

Shah Jee said the people of the tribal areas have seen such difficulties during the last several years. He said the tribal people should be thankful to Allah that these difficulties have come to an end now.
