At a time when Muslims are supposed to celebrate the end of Ramadan, their month of fasting, with Eidul Fitr, a time of general rejoicing, the suicide bombing in Lakki Marwat and the car explosion in Kurram Agency, killing four and eight people respectively are highly condemnable. While the former was most likely part of the war on terror, the Kurram Agency deaths may be part of a family feud or part of the sectarian killings which have been rife there before. A more heinous crime was committed in Quetta where a bomb blast killed 12 people at Eidgha. However, the inability of the government to protect even the lives of its citizens, leave alone their properties, has been highlighted by these incidents. That these incidents occurred on Eid also highlighted the fact that, instead of praying for the prosperity and progress of the country on this sacred occasion, the perpetrators committed these deeds instead, making one doubt that they could have been Muslims. This gives rise to the suspicion that the perpetrators of these and other deeds of terrorism may well have been penetrated by India, particularly after it obtained consulates in Afghanistan from the Karzai regime. Previously, the militants, who claimed that they were following the precepts of Islam, were careful enough to leave aside religious festivals, and it goes without mentioning that the biggest religious festival of Islam was among them. Now that this taboo has been broken, the government needs to be particularly vigilant at the next Eid, due in just over two months, and Ashura and its related gatherings. The vigilance must not consist only of administrative measures, which after all just mean a series of cosmetic measures, but must be based on properly obtained human intelligence, for which the network, if not already established, can be laid in time for even Eidul Azha if the agencies responsible get to work immediately.
