This is with reference to the news of Baitullah Mehsud's death. That is welcome news for the whole Pakistani nation which must have given a collective sigh of relief that their number one enemy is dead. The man responsible for death of thousands of innocent people in Pakistan in scores of suicide bombings is bombed out himself. I want to congratulate the nation and appeal to the armed forces to clean up rest of the pockets of resistance in the tribal area to make Pakistan a land of peace again. -DR FAREEHA KHANUM, Mardan, via e-mail, August 7.
