Our country is going through a tough period these days, as we are facing the worst acts of terrorism carried out by militant outfits. The murder of a Federal Minister is a warning by these terrorists that they can strike with impunity, whenever and wherever they please. Shahbaz Bhatti known for his activism of interfaith harmony was brutally gunned down in the Federal Capital, considered to be the most secure place in the entire country. These terrorists will have to be eliminated once and for all, as the future of our country is now under serious threat. YASIR HAMEED, Islamabad, March 3.
