Pakistan must act strongly against all terrorists for the sake of its own younger generation.
- Terror attack at Bacha Khan University in Pakistan has grim echoes of the Peshawar Army Public School massacre in December 2014.
- Targeting schools and colleges reflect the jihadis’ opposition to education, which is a force of modernisation and empowerment.
- Pakistan needs to invoke Bacha Khan’s ( khan Abdul Gaffer khans’ ) legacy and reverse the Islamist course taken by its society and polity.
- Pakistan will have to muster the will to act against terrorists of all shades, and not choose between the “good” and the “bad” Taliban.
