Pakistan’s situation worries me. I am amazed it worries not many people around the globe. Until now, they exported terrorism unabashedly. Then terrorism started hurting them itself! But until now, however much fundamentalist the Pakistani Army was they would use the poor and brain-washed as cannon-fodder. Now an incident has come to light where an Army officer himself became a suicide bomber!
According to reliable sources in the local police, a Pashtun army officer belonging to the elite Special Services Group, whose younger sister was reportedly among the 300 girls killed during the Pakistan Army’s commando raid on the Lal Masjid in Islamabad between July 10 and 13, blew himself up during dinner at the SSG’s headquarters mess at Tarbela Ghazi, 100 km south of Islamabad, on the night of September 13, killing 19 other officers.
The incident coincided with United States Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte’s visit to Kabul and Islamabad for talks with leaders and officials of the two governments.
This is when the lines start becoming blurred. You don’t know where to stand? It worries me now and also reinforces my belief that Musharraf’s days are numbered given the fundamentalism in his Army. And the target of the fundamentalists is the coveted nukes! India or US need to find the nukes before the terrorists do and neutralize them or they could be a huge threat to the world!!
