Daily life goes on in war-torn Pakistan

The Pakistani military has been aggressively going after militant groups — after seemingly incessant terrorist attacks in many parts of the country.

But we don’t hear much about the toll on average Pakistanis and how they cope with the menace of militant attacks every day.

Daljit Dhaliwal talks about everyday life in Lahore with Saeed Shafqat, adjunct professor at Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs.

Thanks for inviting the most knowledgable and reliable source to interview on the topic -terrorism in PAKISTAN. His concerns about the possibility of students made hostage calls for serious and immediate action from the United States and all PEACE LOVING nations.

Terrorism is clearly not just one man’s or one nations problem. Its like an epidemic and is about to take over the entire world if immediate steps are not taken to prevent it from spreading.

We need to find more people like prof. Shafqat who are knowledgable as well as un- biased/impartial to figgure out what can be done.

People need to be educated to love their fellow human beings. There is a high need to help them get their priorities straight in order take control over this epidemic of terrorism . Its not important as to in which part of the world it is happening ,because its creeping every where , no one is safe regardless of the country we live in. Its just a matter of degree of safety.

We owe it to our future generations to leave them with a safer world.I Strongly believe that despite the fact that its a tough job but together we can do it.Thanks
