THE Punjab government's move to place charity schools and hospitals belonging to the Jamaatud Dawa under official control, is in line with the UN resolutions. This has been done to prevent the use of these places for any illegal activity. However, the government control would not affect the useful function of these institutions. The Dawa headquarters in Muridke, its branches in Lahore and elsewhere, besides its bank accounts, have already been frozen. The latest measure inspires confidence in the government's determination to root out militancy from the country. Though the international community in general has been appreciative of our strategy to combat extremism, New Delhi, as befits its traditional stance, continues pointing fingers at Pakistan for not doing enough. Moreover it is sad to learn that our High Commissioner to India Shahid Malik has received a death threat in an anonymous letter. Such instances, and harassment of other Pakistanis including artists, reflects our neighbour's propensity to take things to the extreme.
