We will not allow a bunch of retards hold a nation hostage.

Pakistan has been hit by a wave of suicide bombings, commando-style raids and other attacks blamed on militants which have killed more than 2,200 people in about 275 attacks since July 2007.

I seriously don't know what to say. This recent wave of attacks has reminded this nation once again that we ALL have to unite against the Taliban. How much more blood do we need to see on our streets and our cities to realize that War is upon us? It's now or never for Pakistan. I sincerely wish the Pakistan army successfully completes the operation in Waziristan. No room for traitors in our columns!

May Allah grant paradise to all innocent souls that left us and may their innocent blood be the catalyst that accelerates the demise of TTP this manner they shall forever be remembered as the martyrs of our nation who gave us something precious and everlasting, our honour and our unity. It is our duty as the educated segment of our society to make those around us aware of the threat and to reject this terror campaign as having any single legitimate cause...I just hope that the sacrifices of our fellow countrymen amount to at least this much that an overwhelming majority of Pakistanis unite in the action against the overt perpetrators and not just condemn the bombing as a tragic natural phenomenon.

May Allah guide us all and protect us all and rid us of these monsters who certainly deserve the fires of hell and nothing less.

All this terrorism has damaged the Islam and Muslims and the fact is that most of these terrorists are Muslims who are proud of their work as an act for Allah and this is how they brainwash the suicide bombers who are just teenagers...

Here is a timeline of attacks in the past 19 days:

October 23: A suicide attack kills six people near a Pakistan air force base in Kamra, about 60 kilometres west of Islamabad.
October 22: Gunmen kill a Pakistani brigadier on leave from a UN peacekeeping mission and his driver in Islamabad.
October 20: Twin suicide blasts tear through Islamabad's International Islamic University, killing five people as well as the bombers.
October 16: A suicide car bomb rips through a police investigation bureau killing 11 people and wounding 13 others in the northwest city of Peshawar.
October 15: Gunmen armed with suicide vests and grenades attack three police buildings in the eastern city of Lahore and bomb a northwest station, killing 39 people. A car bomb at a government residence in Peshawar kills a child.
October 12: A suicide bomber rips through a market as a paramilitary convoy passes in Shangla, a district neighbouring the northwest Swat valley and the target of a recent anti-Taliban offensive. About 45 people, mainly civilians, are killed. Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) claims responsibility.
October 10/11: Ten militants besiege army headquarters in the garrison town Rawalpindi, with 23 people killed and 39 hostages freed. The dead included 11 troops, three hostages and nine attackers. TTP claims responsibility.
October 9: A suicide car bomber kills 52 civilians and wounds more than 100 in a crowded market in northwest city Peshawar. It is the sixth attack in four months in the city, near the tribal belt on the Afghan border where tens of thousands have fled a feared offensive against the Taliban and Al-Qaeda.
October 5: Five UN World Food Programme workers are killed when a suicide bomber walks into their office in Islamabad and blows himself up, dressed in military uniform. The TTP claims responsibility for the attack.

We are at war to save ourselves, our country and indeed the whole world. The world should remember that if we had not made this our war, than God knows how many more 9/11s have been witnessed by now. We are suffering for the security of the world. It is Pakistan and Pakistanis who are defending the true Islam by opposing these evil's worshipers and saying to the world loudly that Islam never allows what these fiends are doing.

Don't be despair! Bad days have already started for rats.soon they will be history but nation will have to give sacrifice after all nation is form after sacrifices .Our elders gave sacrifice in 1947 now its our turn so be stand tall against rats (TTP). Fellows don’t show your emotions to your enemy, this is exactly what they want……they want us to weep, to feel misery, and to knee down in front of them… but they don’t know that with each and every single droplet of innocent blood they are shedding…..they are making us more and more strong… we will face all the consequences, but will never surrender…

Pakistan will survive, Pakistan is forever.

The evil in our midst

Depressingly, though perhaps not unsurprisingly given the beliefs of militant extremists, an educational institution has been targeted by two suicide bombers in Islamabad. That the institution happened to be the International Islamic University may be doubly shocking to some. But the dastardly attack against innocent students on Tuesday is indicative of the fact that the fight for the future of Pakistan does not just pit the ‘godless’ against the ‘true believers’; it is actually a war by a radical minority in society that is bent on imposing its millenarian ideals on the rest of the population, including those trying to educate themselves about Islam in a modern environment. Since the middle years of the Musharraf era, the Islamic University has seen a number of changes in its administration and outlook that have put the university in the ‘moderate’ camp of Islam, a change that, to the militants, amounts to heresy, or even apostasy. And it is now well known that anyone who holds even a slight difference in interpretation of Islam with the militants is a ‘legitimate’ target.

The motive for the bombing of the IIU is not known yet, but two things are known. One, Tuesday’s attack is another in a wave of suicide bombings and fidayeen attacks since the state indicated its intention to enter the ground zero of militancy in South Waziristan. Two, while the IIU has not issued a statement in support of Operation Rah-i-Njiat, it is known that the government and the security establishment have reached out to the media, civil society and other civilian institutions for support. Perhaps, then, the militants have decided to demonstrate their anger at the lack of support for their ‘cause’ among the public.

The wickedness of Tuesday’s attack, however, raises fresh fears for the public. Security officials have in recent weeks repeatedly warned of the possibility of attacks against civilian targets, including educational institutions. Until Tuesday, there was no way to independently assess how real that threat was. Now we know that the war is widening. Many schools in the country were closed at the start of the week in apprehension of violence in the cities and towns. After Tuesday, more schools will close temporarily. But here is the terrifying reality: schools, colleges and universities are soft targets and securing them against the threat of suicide bombers is all but impossible, especially in the short term. The country is not sinking, but we are slipping towards the very ugliest terrain of urban militant violence. And at this time of great danger, we must also ask: what else will shake leaders such as Nawaz Sharif, who are still on the fence, to take a firm stand against militants and support the effort to subdue them?
