Ter­ror Strikes

India Today - - MAIL -

The bomb blast in a church in Pe­shawar in Pak­istan re­sult­ing in the loss of many un­sus­pect­ing in­no­cent lives while leav­ing scores griev­ously wounded is a grim re­minder that the ten­ta­cles of ter­ror­ism, that have spread far and wide, need to be tack­led on a war foot­ing (“The Ter­ror Within”, The Big Pic­ture, Oc­to­ber 7). Tehrik- iTal­iban’s claim, that the blast was car­ried out by them to warn Amer­ica about its fre­quent drone strikes in Pak­istan that lead to civil­ian deaths, is ab­so­lutely ridicu­lous. A venge­ful at­ti­tude will only lead to large- scale de­struc­tion of hu­man lives and prop­erty. K. R. SRINI­VASAN, Se­cun­der­abad
