Why is the Pakistan Government even thinking of negotiating with these criminals? Perhaps it is time we thought about a secular Pakistan. A totally sharia law dominated Islamic state was NOT exactly the founders had in mind. As I understand, they envisaged a secular state. A state that was open to ALL peoples of ALL religious beliefs. If they had intended to create a religious state they would have re-written the constitution and the laws.

"Identify the bomber through whatever means and level the whole village that he is from. Level the agriculture and the land and take away the animals from them. Dispose of the tubewell/water supply if any. So next time the Taliban recruit these kids even the kids and their parents will think twice." If so, all Dife e Council and LeJ and LeT members will lose their animals and land soon.

The Government can never fight this war with the terrorists alone. It is time now that a long term policy be devised to fight this menance. These inhuman creatures cannot unleash terror alone without the funding and fresh backup support. Through vigorous campaigns the common people who contribute in cash and kind and resources towards these people should be educated. Documentaries of such killings together with other information to be given wide publicity.
