Impact of Terrorism On Pakistan

26/11 is not reaching to any conclusions. The impact of terrorism on Pakistan is evident

Is Pakistan government machinery a puppet in the hands of Lashkar?

Sometimes I wonder who is governing the country called Pakistan. Is it a faction of terrorists who command over the existing government and army? Is it the army that comprises of terrorists? Is government there is just for a namesake? Is government just a puppet in the hands of army shadowing terrorist factions? Who has the real power in Pakistan is really a point to ponder. The recent example is India giving ample evidence of the terrorist attack on 26/11 in Mumbai having Pakistan’s backing and support. Pakistan Court has rejected the plea for 26/11 voice samples. This is indeed a big setback for India. The terror trial in Pakistan is always influenced by terrorist factions. The court and government either stay mom over the issues or say what the terrorist factions want them to say. It is logically the voice of terror through the mouth of Pakistan courts and government.
The Islamabad high court has rejected a petition to the FDA (Federal Investigation Agency) to provide voice samples of suspects. The suspects, as we know, include Lashkar commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi. Point to note is FDA is Pakistan government’s official investigation agency. They want to probe the case and match the voice with the intercepts provided to them by the Indian government. How the interests of two prime government agencies differ in a country? If FDA is seeking support from the court to nail down the culprits what interest court has to safeguard terrorists. One thing is evidently clear for the whole world to understand – the court is very much clear that the intercepts provided by the Indian government will definitely match the voice samples that they are seeking permission for from the court.
Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi is the name of fear in Pakistan. He is a symbol of supreme power there. He is the real ruler. Every government machinery, it means, works under him. Every law there in Pakistan is bowed in front of Lakhvi. The prime responsibility of Pakistan government, court and army are to safeguard Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi leaving aside the risks and threats it imparts to the whole world. Why the protectors of terrorists should not be called as a terrorist rather than government and court. Is truth, humanity and reality totally succumbed in that country? The good has succumbed to the bad, that means.

What is the next step for FDA in Pakistan? They should not surrender to the Islamabad high court. They should now tap the doors of the supreme court. They should seek help from the government and army. Let everything open out and be clearly visible to the whole world. What next for India? They should tap the whole world for support to pressurize Pakistan to provide the voice samples of seven suspects including that of Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, the supreme operating commander of Lashkar. The impact of terrorism on Pakistan is quite visible. This blog post is inspired by the blogging marathon hosted on IndiBlogger for the launch of the #Fantastico Zica from Tata Motors.
