A to Z of Pakistani terror
E for Economic costs
One report claimed that the economic costs of terrorism in Pakistan cost the country (both directly and indirectly) $68 billion. The post 9/11 death toll for Pakistani citizens has crossed 50,000.
F for Finger pointing
Even when a Pakistan terror group claims responsibility, authorities still point fingers at India. Conspiracy theories abound and thanks to that the actual perpetrators are never caught.
G for Guns
They are available like vegetables in Pakistan and gun markets are common. AK-47s have been reverse engineered and they are fired even in functions and weddings.
H for Haqqani Network and HuM
Pashtun warlord Sirajuddin Haqqani fights the US-led forces in Afghanistan and has strong links with Pakistani terror groups. The Harkat-ul-Mujahideen is one of the many terror groups with a Kashmir focus.
