Last week was a tragic one for Pakistan. There were deadly terrorist attacks across the country that claimed lives of hundreds of innocents civilians as well as military personnel in Balochistan, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, and Punjab. The recent spell of terrorist activities has raised serious concerns amongst the society, armed forces and government officials regarding the resurgence of these attacks in the country once again. The deadliest of these attacks took place at Sehwan Sharif on February 16, 2017, killing more than 80 people. The Islamic State (IS) has claimed responsibility for this barbaric incident.
