Recently, in a news report it was mentioned that the third major source of terrorist funding is through private donations. This is an alarming fact, because even after ten years of fighting this war, we have been unable to clamp down on terrorist funding. It should be the top most priority for the officials to prevent these terror groups from getting their hands on these donations. Any donation given by an individual should have a proper procedure, so it is made sure that it is not used for any wrong purpose. Secondly, the public should be made aware of the consequences that these radical groups may unleash through the destructive use of donations. People sponsoring these groups for their own personal or political benefits, should be brought to justice. Awais Khan, Rawalpindi
