Our Correspondent December 19, 2012


President Asif Ali Zardari on Tuesday strongly condemned the attack on polio field workers in Karachi and Peshawar and directed the chief secretaries of Sindh and Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa to conduct an enquiry and submit the reports within 48 hours.

Paying tribute to the services rendered by the polio field teams, the president said they have been instrumental in the eradication of the crippling disease from the country.

He directed all concerned to provide polio teams foolproof security so that they could continue the campaign without any hindrance.

@Wajib: Sometimes people are so dumb they think they're smart. You're a fine example. Yes, I decided to say that instead of addressing your comment. Not because I can't destroy your argument but because people like you base things they say on a foundation of fantasy. You can't change someone's delusional thoughts with facts and debate because they don't require reality to confirm or deny the validity of that delusion. The imagination gives someone infinite ability to stay dumb if they want to bad enough.

@ Wajib , people like yourself are the reason we are , where we are . Till people like you , who are unfortunately in majority change their mind set , we wouldn't be able to do anything good for our self.

OK ,for a bit if I agree with you , do you have answer , that if it was done by some one else , not Taliban and they put blame on poor talibans , then why not those good Talibans come forward and take responsibility of those health care workers protection not only in Karachi but specially in the areas where they are in majority .
