Last week has been dedicated to rallies, increase in political ante and allegations by political opponents. While this might be termed as a normal and encouraging sign in a democratic system, but in all the political bickering, the menace of terrorism has been ignored. The recent suicide blast in Nowshera targeting police officials has underscored the fact that terrorism is still very much a threat to the country. As soon as we take our eyes off the situation, these nefarious elements are ready to pounce at the opportunity presented. Would it not be better that instead of arguing and fighting amongst ourselves, the political leadership would sit together and at least come out with a comprehensive strategy to battle the menace of terrorism?
