After the operation against the militants by Pakistan army in different regions of Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa, the number of suicide bombing has gone down considerably. As good as it sounds; it brings even greater responsibilities with it. We as a nation have seen the horrors of terrorism and I am sure we would not like to pass it on to the next generation. This is the time for the moderate and liberal elements of the society to come forward and start making some noise. The secret to a sustainable model of peace lies in not only refuting extremist ideologies but injecting liberal and moderate ideologies in the minds of general public. Also the environment for potential conspiracy theorists must be reduced as much as possible. I remember someone once said and I quote Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice.-YASIR QADEER, Islamabad, June 4.
