Sectarian violence is on the rise because the Government itself let outlawed organisations off the hook. Parties like JUI-F and JI hardly condemn attacks on other sects and in particularly the Shia community. We don’t need any foreign enemies, as we have an enemy within who is growing at an alarming rate. Government of the day on the other hand is totally helpless, what to talk about security, they have even failed to provide basic needs. One thing is for sure that these barbarians are not going to stop killing innocent people no matter how many military courts are established or how many criminals are hanged. We need to pray for a miracle instead.
