Fata is strategically an important region with an area of 27,220 kms and a population between 5 and 10 millions. Any decision regarding Fata should be taken by asking the people of Fata through referendum. Inclusion of KP (former NWFP) with Pakistan was done through a referendum.
The UK’s decision to withdraw from the European Union was done through a referendum, although Britain had an elected government at that time. Referendum in Fata about the future status of the area by its people will end this debate once for all.
