Pakistani Public and Teror Worries
Pakistanis believe extremism a major threat: survey By Masood Haider.
NEW YORK: Overwhelmingly, Pakistanis are worried about the impact of extremism on their country and people, says a new survey conducted by PEW (IRI) global research.
In 2008 72 per cent said they were concerned about Islamic extremism in their country, and over half — 54 per cent — said they were very concerned, the highest per centage among the eight countries on the survey where the question was asked (the others were Egypt, Jordan, Indonesia, Lebanon, Nigeria, Tanzania, and Turkey).
A strong, sincere goveremnt is needed to lead the fight against the terrorism, without which people cant stand up to these fanatics on their own. taliban have applied the strategy of eliminating all forms of oppositon or dissent with terrifying efficiency in SWAT and tribal areas bordering Afghanistan.. a mere public disapporval wont bother Taliban.. they need to be dealt with the same tool they are using against the people of this region.
