The worsening economic situation of the country is constantly adding to our problems, as it is being exploited by the terror networks. The terror networks approach the unemployed and the financially week individuals and offer them monetary rewards. It is not always religious fervor but also financial motivation which compels these people to do such horrible acts of violence. It is imperative that the state should pull up its socks, to address the continuous economic downturn. It is important that the aid arriving into the country is allocated to projects, which would benefit the economy as well as, create employment opportunities. YAHYA AHMAD
