The Threat of Terrorism

Pakistan's dilly-dallying tactics of bringing to books the perpetrators of 26/11 Mumbai attacks is now fully accepted by the world community.Whatever credible evidence has been given by India to prosecute 26/11 mastermind Hafiz Saeed and others has been rejected by Pakistan as insufficient.This shows its seriousness of dealing with terrorism.
Despite assurances that the country's soil would not be used to aid and abet terrorism, the fact remains that behind every major terror strike across the globe the perpetrators have acted at the behest of state actors.
The country's soft and dual policy on terrorism is thus reflected.This can be gauged from the fact that the Jamat-ud-dawa with Hafiz Saeed as the head which has been banned by the US and UK due to its subversive activities,has been declared a charitable and religious organization by Pakistan.In the absence of any international pressure and sanctions the country's 'soft on terror' policy only gets a boost.
US President Barack Obama after winning Presidential elections on November 4,2008 had vowed to stop giving non-military aid to countries using terrorism as a state policy.
But within less than a year,the US Senate to strengthen US-Pakistan ties, unanimously on September 25,2009 passed the 'Kerry Luger Bill' which will triple non military aid to Pakistan to $1.5 billion till 2014 despite the fact that such aids have been used to support and conduct hostile operations against India.
It is high time that some concrete steps be taken and sanctions be imposed against Pakistan so that the threat of terrorism which is looming large over the world may end.
