The militants are carrying out their nefarious activities, with the objective of keeping our citizens impoverished and pushing them further deep into poverty and denying them any facility. The Taliban have recently blown up two schools and a hospital in Mohmand Agency. Blowing up of such infrastructure is beyond any sane and legitimate reason. An area which is already hard hit with conflict and lacks numerous basic facilities, destroying such public service infrastructure will only add to the misery of the local people. It is imperative that more attention should be given to the development work and security of such facilities, in these conflict areas. YASIR HAMEED, Islamabad, June 10.
