Countering the Terror Threat

Consider the theatrics of the absurd by some political clerics at the killing of the terrorist responsible for slaughtering thousands of innocent Pakistanis. Indeed pathetic that the fundamentally moderate Jamaat-i-Islami (JI) should label Tehrik-e-Taliban-i-Pakistan (TTP) Chief Hakimullah Mehsud a “Shaheed”! To safeguard their fiefdoms, politicians and clerics often turn to appeasement of militants. The Army did well by immediately reacting to what potentially can erode the morale of the rank and file. And so did PM Mian Nawaz Sharif, burying 15 years of self-created bad blood with the Army by a maiden visit to GHQ soon after the JI leader’s outrageous remarks, he rightly called the Army’s martyrs as “our benefactors”.

Countering Terrorism

The many reasons why Pakistan is now the “ground zero” of terrorism are well known, it is mostly our own fault for giving this menace time and space. We allowed others to fight their proxy wars on our soil, even worse we actively collaborated in fighting their proxy wars. Negotiations are part of the “soft sell” mechanism to counter terrorism, both the government and opposition are on the same page on this. This must be within the framework of the Constitution with no ambiguity about what to talk about and whom to talk with. Appeasement is not an option, the militants have been single-mindedly vicious targeting mosques, schools, hospitals, funerals, etc, the innocent blood of many old men, women and small children is on their hands.
