An easy target... By Nayyar
01 October, 2013
As a safety and precautionary step, all provincial governments and the federal government of Pakistan must announce that, with immediate effect, no vehicle of any type, including cycles and motor cycles, will be allowed to enter or be parked in any market place throughout the country. This is a very harsh and inconvenient step but it may save many lives.
Moreover, the fact — as reported by the media — that the bombing of Qisa Khawani bazaar in Peshawar was the 13th act of terrorism in that particular bazaar, means that the terrorists find it akin to a piece of cake exploding bombs there. It must be made as difficult as possible for militants to enter that and any other bazaar. We must safeguard the lives of innocent civilians who do nothing more than visit the marketplace.
