Of no religion... By Ayesha

Pakistan has made many headlines in the world due to many negative circumstances like corruption, poverty, terrorism, illiteracy, drone attacks and many other horrors. The recent incident of the Peshawar blast is another example of the continuation of this process. This shows the violence against the integrity of our territory. In this deadly explosion, as many as 43 were killed and over 100 injured when the bomb went off in a Peshawar market place near the police station. The unfortunate thing was that the deceased included six children and two women besides 18 members of a family who had come to attend a wedding. The fire that broke out after this blast also caused the destruction of shops, plazas and several vehicles. This barbaric act reveals that these terrorist groups are devoid of humanity and all religion.
Pakistan has sacrificed many lives, blood and resources. These terrorists do not belong to any religion. This must change now. Islam is a religion of peace and brotherhood. Why do these extremists use the name of Islam for this horrid purpose? The stereotyping of Muslims as extremists and terrorists must stop now.
