  1. This fanatical insurgents if arrested should be tried on the court of law and punished accordingly to put an end to this madness. How many civilians and soldiers have lost their lives in their hands. The chief of army should stop Insulting the intelligent of the people with such actions. Not making them pay for their athrocities is a total disservice to the fatherland.Pampering the bastards is a worst sin to man and God.
