Of UN res­o­lu­tions

Southasia - - EDITOR’S MAIL - Shamshad Kas­sim Karachi, Pak­istan

There is much jubilation in Pak­istan over the United Na­tions’ res­o­lu­tion against drone strikes. While it is true that civil­ian deaths have oc­curred as a re­sult of drone strikes, it is also a fact that a ma­jor­ity of those killed in these at­tacks were ter­ror­ists. It has also been re­ported in the me­dia that many times ter­ror­ists use in­no­cent civil­ians as hu­man shields. Whether the U.S. will dis­con­tinue the drone strikes af­ter the res­o­lu­tion is yet to be seen. What we should not for­get is that the UN has passed sim­i­lar res­o­lu­tions on the Kash­mir con­flict as well. The is­sue still re­mains un­solved even af­ter the pas­sage of more than 60 years.
