Although Dr Usman and Arshad have been hanged but are these actions timely? Wouldn’t it have been better if these efforts to contain terrorists were made before more than a hundred innocent lives were lost in Peshawar? Why did we have to wait till 16 December 2014? Will these hangings take out the mindset that leads to extremism and eventually terrorism? Is this the first reaction or a real strategy to bring peace?
