Time to Act
As you sow, so shall you reap
Pakistan was learning the meaning of this proverb in a hard way these days. The once friend Talibans were rocking the Pakistan cities with bomb blasts and if we all just see the no. of bomb blasts happened there in this year, we will faint for sure. According to the following site, there are about 417 blasts(The latest bomb blast in Peshawar was not included in this) in this year till October which makes more than a blast/day. Check this here. This amount of bomb blasts also shows how easily the Talibans were moving along with the people in the country. And the latest Peshawar blast was happened on the day, when US secretary of state Hillary Clinton visited Pakistan, which itself is a statement.
In many of the blasts luckily there were no loss of life. Even an accident in front of our will create a lot of pressure, uncertainity and doubts in a human mind. And these kind of attacks will surely create doubts and fear in the minds of people for sure, which is not a good sign for a nation. We can avoid accidents, but these intentional bombings??? But this blasts provides an opportunity for Pakistan to understand how evil the terrorism is and to completely uproot Taliban from their soil. Even the people of Pakistan will be furious about the attacks which killed many of their countrymen and will extend a complete support for their government’s action.
If a stern action was not taken by the Pakistan government, it will be a great threat for all the South Asian countries. And Pakistan leaders must stop pointing their fingers towards India for the blasts by making some statements like ‘India supporting Talibans by providing monetary assistance’ which will just help to divert their attention towards a direction which is wrong and a direction where the problem won’t be solved. Actually some kind of above statement was made by Pakistan’s North West Frontier Province’s (NWFP) Inspector General of Police (IG) Malik Naveed which was then denied by the Pakistan Interior minister Rehman Malik. You can read about that here.
If we see the cities in which the bomb blast happened we could see most of the NWFP states are affected. This itself may create some doubts in the minds of the different parts of the people which is again not a good sign for the integrity of a nation. So its time for the Pakistan government to push aside their misconceptions and egos for the welfare of South Asia, if not for that, atleast for their nation and their people. Hope they won’t commit their mistake again.
