Peshawar attacks

Sports

 
February 2, 2011

Two more suicide attacks claimed the lives of six people in Peshawar. They are a cruel reminder that our nation is still under attack by the extremist forces. A series of attacks in the past – and this one as well – is targeted at our security forces particularly the police which are fighting the terrorists.
The terrorists once again resorted to the cowardly tactic of suicide bombing, which is very hard to counter. It is essential for the locals to help the security forces in the identification of the extremist elements so that better security measures can be taken.

*****
In Peshawar six people including a police deputy superintendent were killed in two bomb blasts. The first bomb was exploded by a teenage suicide bomber. The government must come up with a system or techniques to detect suicide attackers. It must purchase the technology needed for the recognition of volatile material.

*****
Two more bomb blasts rocked Peshawar but it seems nobody gives any importance to such incidents anymore since they have become a common occurrence. If the government cannot do anything to stop these bomb blasts and if it doesn’t have the required workforce for security purposes, it can at least train young people like myself and many others who are willing to assist the government and are eager to do something to stop these blasts.

*****
Blowing up public infrastructure has become a matter of routine of the militants to and cause trouble to the locals of the area. The blowing up of schools, hospitals, bridges and police stations has become a common occurrence in the conflict-ridden areas.
The destruction of such infrastructure does not hinder the security forces’ activities as such, but these activities only cause problems to the innocent people who are being pulled into this conflict.
