A savage enemy... By Masood

08 January, 2014

When you fight an enemy, you expect him/her to be bound or obliged by some sort of norms but what to do when you fight animals in the disguise of humans? I regret the use of such harsh words but what do you think of an enemy who is filled with such hatred that he feels no hesitation or shame in sending an eight-year-old innocent girl on a suicide-bombing mission? The Afghan police recently stopped a girl, apparently in a state of shock and confusion, entering a border police check post in Helmand province she was wearing a suicide vest but she could not operate the button to detonate the explosives she was wearing to blow herself up along with the soldiers at the check post.

The Afghan and Pakistani Taliban are not only actively using brainwashed children on suicide bombing missions but also ensuring that a generation of handicapped and crippled children become the symbol of these countries. Anti-polio vaccination campaigns are bound to fail in Pakistan's tribal areas and other parts of the country wherein Pashtuns are residing. This not only includes remote rural areas of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province but also urban centres such as Karachi. Brutal attacks on health workers and those on duty for their security are forcing polio teams to abandon the campaigns. Perhaps we will never know for whom the Afghan and Pakistani Taliban are working. Apparently, they are in self-destruct mode but are ensuring they destroy everyone else who does not subscribe to their ideology.
