LONDON: From the perspective of Pashtuns, Dr Shakil Afridi did the right thing. Al Qaeda has made the land of the Pashtuns the global hub of terrorism, and we owe it to the world as well as to our own people to extend full cooperation to anyone who tries to eradicate this menace from our land.
Furthermore, it’s ironic that so far none of Osama’s enablers have been punished for the terrorist’s rather comfortable days spent in Abbotabad but Dr Afridi has been dealt with so swiftly. This makes me wonder that whose side are we really on.
