ISLAMABAD: I am writing with reference to your newspaper’s report of April 9 titled “Sakhi Sarwar attack: Bomber apologises to the nation”. The boy named Umar has said that 400 militants are being trained in Mirali, including Uzbeks, Tajiks, Arabs and Pakistanis. We should welcome the fact that at least he has realised that he, and other militants who are playing this dirty game, is wrong and has apologised.
Now it is up to our law enforcement agencies and security services to find out where this training is being given, dismantle it and arrest all those involved.
