The Peshawar carnage... By Misbah
30 September, 2013
After the conclusion of the APC, recent spate of terrorist attacks is an indicator of the Taliban's non-seriousness regarding peace talks. Both the time and targets of these attacks are very significant. In case of the Dir incident, the target was senior army officers, while in Peshawar they attacked Christians.
Their objectives are very clear from these two attacks – they want us to start fighting within, they want to destroy the unity among the government, the armed forces and the people of Pakistan. They want to tear apart the whole social fabric woven with religious coexistence. So at this point in time we need to understand their hidden objectives act cautiously.
