How to fight terror

How to fight terror

In the wake of the recent terrorist attacks in various parts of Pakistan, people are in a state of deep anguish and pain. We have been hit hard but that does not mean that we will hide; instead we will fight back. In this context it is good to hear that a telephonic conversation between Afghan National Security Adviser Hanif Atmar and Adviser to the Prime Minister on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz took place where the latter said that banned terrorist outfit Jamaatul Ahrar had accepted responsibility for the acts of terror. Aziz expressed concerns that the terrorist outfit continued to operate from its sanctuaries in Afghanistan. He also said it was important that the Afghan government take action against such elements so that both countries can deal with the menace of militancy together.

We need the cooperation of the world community, especially of Afghanistan, to counter threats to our security. Effective border management is also essential to prevent the movement of terrorists into our territory. Pakistan has been fighting terrorism for a long while and it is time that this war is brought to an end.
