The ‘Operation Geronimo’, is ended in a mystery but the aftermath might be very crucial for the people of Pakistan. The Pakistani people will remain in a deep nightmare due to the death of the most wanted fugitive Osama Bin Laden. This death does not signal the happy ending of the global terrorism but this may flare up the activities of the extremists.
After the death of Bin Laden I was very apprehensive to see how Al Qaeda retaliates. And they did it very cruelly on last 13th of May. About Eighty people were killed in a suicidal bomb blast in Pakistan and the number of injured was even more. Al Qaeda took a shadow revenge on Pakistan because their chief was killed on the soil Pakistan. On 18th May nineteen Pakistani people were killed in Peshawar in a terrorist attack. These weird things are common phenomena in this country as the activists find it a very friendly place to practice bloodshed.
From my point of view I think that countries in the south Asia are really in a vulnerable position because of such kind of activities. The country Pakistan always failed to prove herself as a safe ground for her citizens. Everyday people experiences bomb blasts in mosques, offices, police stations and in cantonments.
Sovereignty of this country faced a big question mark when Bin Laden was killed in Abbottabad keeping the ISI in dark. The most interesting thing is United States does not believe Pakistan. CIA director Leon Panetta, in an interview with Time magazine said U.S. officials planning the raid “decided that any effort to work with the Pakistanis could jeopardize the mission” because “they might alert the targets.” After the death of Osama Bin Laden the US president Barack Obama asked U.S. lawmakers to re-evaluate the relationship with Pakistan and which is clearly a threat to Pakistan. Pakistan’s foreign ministry issued a statement saying that the U.S. action that killed bin Laden was mounted without the country’s knowledge and may undermine future cooperation. Pakistan will have to face a lot of question regarding the giant terrorist’s whereabouts. “The Pakistani army and intelligence have a lot of questions to answer, given the location, the length of time, and the apparent fact that this was actually — this facility was actually built for bin Laden and its closeness to the central location of the Pakistani army,” Levin, a Democrat from Michigan, said at a news conference. White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan said yesterday that members of Congress are “understandably” raising questions about whether bin Laden got support from some elements of the Pakistani government. “We are looking right now at how he was able to hold out there for so long, and whether or not there was any type of support system within Pakistan that allowed him to stay there,” Brennan said. The U.S.-Pakistan relationship is “one of the most fraught, complicated and difficult bilateral relationships literally that exists in the world today,” said Richard Haass, president of the Council on Foreign Relations and a former director of policy planning at the State Department.
These things create anarchy and leave the people of Pakistan in a deep uncertainty indeed.
