Irony of Lakki Marwat attack on Aman Ittehad day

Suicide attack in Lakki Marwat (NWFP) claims 70 lives – the day over fifty ‘Aman Ittehad‘ (peace and solidarity) rallies took place all over Pakistan…

The attack once again underlines how much more is needed than such rallies, inspiring though they may be, and the urgency of developing consensus and clarity on our direction as a nation: it  cannot be what the jihadi/militaristic mindset envisages.
