Afghanistan still UNSC’s focus

In a fresh move, the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) sent a high-level delegation, the core of the aim to closely assess situation in Afghanistan.

Int’l cooperation essential against state-sponsored terrorism

There is no doubt that growing insecurity has badly affected the regional communities and is becoming a serious headache for the certain countries in Asia.

The evil of terrorism

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.

Washington called on other states to join in the fight against terrorism asserting that “either you are with us, or you are with the terrorists.” Many governments joined this campaign, often adopting harsh new laws, lifting long-standing legal protections and stepping up domestic policing and intelligence work.
