John Solecki was released recently 'on humanitarian grounds' and his captors said that they were 'educated and civilized' people, I do not understand this hypocrisy; they killed Mr. Solecki's driver, kidnapped him and held him against his will as a prisoner for two months. Are these civilized acts? If you ask me, these 'civilized' kidnappers must have taken loads of money in exchange for Mr. Solecki to purchase arms for their rebellion in Balochistan. After all these civilized people are known for killing innocent people, blowing up bridges & pylons, dismantling rail tracks and breaking off gas pipelines in Balochistan. These traitors fail to realise that a nuclear Pakistan is the best security in the world for them. The outsiders who are using them in these abominable acts are doing so to achieve their international interests. They will abandon them and these people would be ruined. God forbid if these traitors won, Pakistan's nuclear weapons will be neutralized. It is most unfortunate that we have a lot of Mir jaffers and Mir Sadiqs but the government is showing weakness by not doing anything against them. -Z. ISRAR, Karachi, via e-mail, April 7.
