To save the people and the future generations, states that are haunted by terrorism must form a joint working group to jointly fight extremism and stop funding to terrorist organizations.

 

Do we have eyes to see? Do we have ears to listen? Do we have guts to witness that our roads are filled with the blood, many of our children are orphans, our sisters are widowed and our youth are restricted from the potential opportunities; the tears of the mothers and the sigh of the fathers, the dark rooms of the once-delightful homes and the silence in the streets, the horror filled in the eyes, the fire in the hearts of the effected and the laughter of the oppressors, and above all the negligence of the responsible departments of the state, are all the darkness of the terrorism that has prevailed and is increasing its intensity in our country.
