In the wake of the recent bombing in Pakistan many people are accusing the government of Pakistan of training and sponsoring terrorists in their own country. Do you think the Pakistan government should be partially blamed for the recent attacks?
Pakistan: When terrorism becomes a strategic asset!On the evening of Sunday, 28 March, a suicide bomber blew himself up in a children’s park in Lahore. At least 72 deaths have so far been confirmed and more than 250 are reported injured. This is yet another in the series of terrorist attacks continuing in this “land of the pure” in recent years.
This time the victims of this brutality were women and children enjoying their holiday in Gulhan-e-Iqbal Park. The suicide bomber blew himself up at the exit gate near the swings where children play. He targeted the largest crowd in the park. As it was also Easter Sunday, when many Christian families, who are a tiny minority in Pakistan and are one of the poorest and underprivileged layers, had come for a day out. This park is one of few recreation spot for working class families, as the spaces for such enjoyment are becoming less and less available due to the increasing ferociousness of the land grabbers.
