We are the most terrorism-affected nation on this planet and that is mainly because of our leadership failure. One thing, which one fails to understand, though, is that despite hundreds of terrorists having been arrested since 2004, none was tried or hung. We have examples in our neighboring Iran where they take less than a week to execute the criminals and do so on open roads. I am sure unless the same pattern is followed by our courts and law enforcing agencies, we cannot fight this menace. Anyone found helping terrorism should be tried within a maximum of one month and hung. -ABDUL RAUF, Fateh Jang, December 7.
