Neglect of security at an Army mosque is in itself worth judicial investigation. It is best we start safeguarding our cities ourselves. The enemies of Pakistan have tasted blood now and are not going to let our forces win easily in FATA or anywhere else. Helping essentially imperial powers to subdue the Muslim state of Afghanistan has not added any feather to our dignity. The military of Pakistan needs to decide whether it is an Islamic army or one, which can ally with all sorts of crusaders having grotesque aims. If later is the case, a mass Islamic revolution is a serious possibility and the only recipe for survival of a Pakistan with myriad separatist strains. No other dictum, including a secular democracy, can keep Pakistan together, as racial, linguistic and tribal divisions that exist in our midst are too great and the society is essentially pastoral and divisive. -M. SHAIKH, Islamabad, December 6.
