militancy madness
Tuesday, October 21, 2008

A group of clerics which met in Lahore recently has issued a fatwa against suicide bombing in Pakistan. The question arises: why condemn suicide bombings in Pakistan alone? Do they think suicide bombings are justified in other countries? And why do they want the government to conduct negotiations with the terrorists? How can anyone talk to people who brainwash others to blow themselves up?

The only way to solve the problem is to flush out the foreign militants and their supporters who have found refuge in FATA. If the government again starts talking to them, they will regroup and strike again even while negotiations are in progress. These people have no religion, they're mentally unstable and they pose a threat to the whole world.
