Suicide Trainee Bombers Captured Along With Weapons in Swat Valley


Pakistan security forces have captured 14 vehicles with 35,000 kilograms of explosive material along with other military hardware in Swat Valley today July 27, 2009.

Operational commander has also claimed arrest of nine people and several children trained for suicide bombing attacks. This news is reported by Dawn.

I think the important information which is missing from this news item is, what was make and origin of those vehicles, military hardware and explosives. Who were the people, what was their nationality. Capturing of this stuff and people is half the story. The concerned authorities should update the nation with full information. In fact they should show all the stuff on TV briefings. It is very important for the army and government to do that to achieve the support of the people. Otherwise when the government blame India involved in these activities quite a number of people in Pakistan as well as in the world don’t believe them and consider that as propaganda.

Dr. Afia Siddique?


There is a lot of news about Dr. Afia Siddiqee now a days in the news papers. She is a US citizen. Her sister Dr. Arifa Siddique conducted a press conference in Pakistan and asking for the release of Afia Siddique.

Dr. Afia Siddique was captured by the US forces in Afghanistan probably few years earlier.

But nobody is telling us;

Who is this Dr. Afia?
What she was doing in Afghanistan?
When she went to Afghanistan?
Why she went to Afghanistan?
Why nobody raised any voice earlier?
She has any involvement with Taliban?
Is she a relative of any politician in the present regime?

At the highest level government of Pakistan trying to get her out of the jail in the US. Why? Today Pakistani Foreign Minister said government is trying to bring her back to Pakistan. If she is a US citizen why government of Pakistan wants her in Pakistan.

These are the obvious questions arising out of all this Dr. Afia drama.

Anybody knows anything about her. Please fill us up.
