KILLING OF  INNOCENCE

Pakistan is a normal as well as peace loving society with the patches of terrorist acts.  Prior to invasion of Soviet forces in Afghanistan, the words like terrorism, bomb explosion, heroin or Kalashnikov were rare to be heard in the society. However, the influx of Afghan refugees changed the face of society for good. Now, a whole new generation has come to age with an experience of living in a terror-hit society. Major part of the country has been combed by the armed forces and other areas are still under operation. However, Pakistan’s largest province is still in the grip of terror where in a gruesome act of terrorism, more than 15 people were kidnapped and killed in Balochistan. Their bullet-riddled bodies were discovered by the Levies force in Balochistan's Kech district last month. The dust had yet to be settled when another news came up that five more dead bodies were recovered from Turbat, bringing the number of deaths to 20. We should not forget the killing of an innocent is like that of a killing of all the mankind. According to the Inter Services Public Relations, the Frontier Corps  Balochistan conducted an operation near Alandur, Abdul Rehman village, Turbat and killed the responsible for the killing of above said people. In fact, the situation of Balochistan needs a political solution. We need to address the issue at the earliest.

PRESSING THE PRESS IN INDIA

India is a country that boasts to be the largest democracy in the world. There is no problem to people like us for its claim but the country should fulfill its duties relating to its claim. 'Press' is the fourth pillar of state and freedom of press is an essential part of democracy. Indian security forces are on killing spree of journalists. The recent example is that an Indian paramilitary soldier shot dead a journalist following a dispute in the country's third high-profile media killing in barely three months. The name of the victim is Sudip Dutta Bhaumik who was shot dead at a paramilitary base in the remote northeastern state of Tripura. According to a media report, Mr. Bhaumik, a crime reporter, requested a meeting with a top officer at the headquarters of the Second Tripura State Rifles near the state capital of Agartala but the soldier opened fire and killed the journalist inside the office of the commander. India's media has been shocked by a series of killings this year. Another reporter was killed by a mob on September 20 and his mutilated body was found the next day. In September, gunmen shot dead renowned journalist Gauri Lankesh in the southern city of Bangalore. That was the reason India was ranked the deadliest country in Asia for journalists by Reporters Without Borders in 2015.

THE MESSAGE OF 12 RABI UL AWAL

12 Rabi ul Awal, the birthday of Holy Prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH), gives the message of humanity, peace, truth and honor to the Muslims and the rest of the world. The Muslims should celebrate the day with religious enthusiasm but with dignity. Through the prism Holy Prophet(PBUM)’s life, we come to know that there was no scope for zealotry among the ranks of Muslims under the dynamic leadership of Holy Prophet (PBUH). It was not his sword but his personality and preaching which forced people to join the rank of his followers. Under the umbrella of his blessing, even the non believers felt themselves safe and peaceful. We need to learn a lesson of peace from his personality.

ACCOUNTABILITY ACROSS THE BOARD

In a corruption reference filed by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), Finance Minister Ishaq Dar was declared an absconder by an accountability court in Islamabad. The Finance Minister Dar is accused of amassing assets of an approximate value of Rs 831.7 million which are disproportionate to his known sources of income. It is encouraging that a sitting minister has been held accountable for his misdoings. It is time to rejoice for all of us since the future prospect appears to be clear now. In fact, it was former Chief of Army Staff General Raheel Sharif who started accountability drive in armed forces and several senior and junior officers were terminated from their jobs. That was the turning point in the accountability history of Pakistan. If the aspiration for accountability in power corridors continues, we can hope a better tomorrow  for our coming generations.
