16th December 1971 – Pakistan was stabbed in the back by its enemies with the help of Mukti Bahini and once again on December 16, the nation gets stabbed by the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan; the handlers in both cases being the same, those who never accepted Pakistan as a sovereign country.
A bloody Taliban raid on an army-run school in Peshawar ended last night. According to sources, 9 attackers were killed, 3 soldiers martyred and 7 special security personnel sustained injuries during the operation. The assault on the school martyred at least 145 people and injured 114, majority of them children.
SSG’s Zarrar Company commandos were air lifted to Peshawar from Tarbela via helicopters. The soldiers went block by block and room by room to clear the building, starting from the Principal’s office. The terrorists were wearing suicide vests, most of them blew themselves during the operation. The ISPR says that all the four blocks of the school have been cleared by security forces.
The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan accepted the responsibility for the attack, saying they had ordered the target killers and suicide attackers to shoot the older students but not the small children.
The students saved by the security forces later told that the militants were speaking Arabic and children were killed at point blank range. Students added that the attackers came from the backside of the school building. First they opened aerial fire and later started targeting students. Read the rest of this entry »

Pakistan’s nuclear capacity is one of the highly debated issues in the world both inside and outside the country. A recent report from an American think tank about Pakistan’s growing nuclear arsenal has brought the issue further criticism and denunciation. According to the report, Pakistan has the world’s fastest growing nuclear arsenal with enough fissile material to increase its existing stash of 120 missiles to over 200 by the year 2020. Ironically, this report has come from a country that has an existing arsenal of over 8,000 warheads. But let us move on to the bigger picture and discuss the reasons, as to why the Pakistani military is relatively inclined towards improving its nuclear arsenal instead of giving the conventional argument.
Firstly, it is surprising to see that most of the Pakistanis themselves are against Pakistan’s growing nuclear stockpile. Rightly so, because there are certain aspects that need to be addressed before the military further expands its nuclear cache. Some of the key grievances of the common populace about the aforementioned issue are highlighted as follows:
Excess military budget
The threat of a nuclear war
The danger of warheads falling into the hands of radical terrorist organizations
Unneeded focus on improving military equipment instead of concentrating on socioeconomic and political ills in the country
Let us try to discuss and answer all the queries from the above issues with a neutral approach. Read the rest of this entry »
