Explosion of educational institutions

Certain circles believe militancy is being brought under control, as the security forces are making claims that the battle against extremists is meeting with success, in Northwestern areas, bordering with Afghanistan.

However, the ground situation is not looked like and false sense of security should give way to a pragmatic outlook.

The coordinated attacks on educational institutions in different locations of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa proved presence of militants in the region.

Unidentified militants destroyed three boys’ school in Dhoda and Zer Janu villages in Lakki Marwat district and in the Babozai area of Katlang tehsil in Mardan district. Meanwhile a government high school was set on fire in Khaddi village in Swabi district while a primary school was set off in the Kotangi Marchoongi area of Kohat district.

Although law enforcement agencies have started investigation, it is widely believed that the militants have been destroying educational institutions since the origin of their dirty war many years ago.

Despite continued security operations, the terrorist network remains inviolable as showed by the organized nature of strikes.

The extremists by blowing up boys’ school proved that it is not only girls’ education that they go up against, as some members of these organizations have laid claim, but education and progress in general.

The recent incidents of exploding schools should compose an imperative and transformed reminder to the concerned authorities that the menace posed by the militants is far from elimination.

The security forces may have succeeded in cleaning out certain areas, but they will have to take solid measures to liquidate the whole network of extremists.

With an efficient security apparatus, the civilian government should render its support to the security forces in the province to curb the menace of terrorism.

Educational institutions are often soft targets of militant attacks, even though they fit into the extremists’ by and large tactic of panic and retroversion. However, the civil forces, particularly police department, with their knowledge of the areas can better foil such efforts.

Following the extraction of armed forces, the only long-term resolution dwells in a useful civilian security network. Although changing a battled-hit area is quite difficult task, it must be worked out by all stakeholders altogether.
