The phrase WAR ON TERROR is one of the most important slogans in recent times. We have applied so many different polices under that slogan. But has anything really changed in this country?
In the so called War on Terror, Pakistan must surly top the list. For instance, this country is receiving so much financial assistance from all over the world. However, behind this same assistance, the domestic economy, internal security, unemployment and domestic politics has already started to destroy itself. I am trying to express another side of war on terror, behind the war on terror, through the daily life of Pakistani.
Almost everyone in Pakistan knows that he has to fight against terrorism and unforgiving. But this attitude is equally indecisive. Although the world applauds and believes in the war on terror, to the average Pakistani this is but a hollow sentiment.
