This is some thing very unfortunate happening in the country for the last one decade and there seems to be no end to these incidents where hundreds of people are getting killed and some becoming handicapped. All those in the helm of affairs should give a cool thought to it and consider counter response to prevent further losses. Media should also play their role in creating general awareness among the public as to how they can protect lives in the prevailing situation.

Policy makers of pakistan for the last few decades need to be held responsible for bring the province to this chaos but in Pakistan no one ever held accountable.
