Which terrorist do we address?

Sir: With reference to your editorial, ‘Terrorism galore’ (Daily Times, October 19, 2013) the problem is, whom do we talk to? Apparently, there are many groups of terrorists out there and no one is sure about which is the dominant one. Even if you identify and hold talks with the ones doing the most damage, the others will continue doing their worst to destabilise the country. Moreover, most Taliban sympathisers are convinced that those who are killing people indiscriminately cannot be Muslims. So, why not find these non-Muslims first and talk to them instead of the Taliban?
