Violence always begins in mind; it needs to be uprooted therefore from the mind itself. We have to find an ideology of peace with which to confront the ideology of violence; without that there will be no end to the violence. The horrendous event that took place in New York and Washington on September 11, 2001 are adequate proof of this point. They effectively demonstrated that, with a violent bent of mind, man can wage a war without even being in possession of arms. He can bombard without a bomb. Therefore, we have to eradicate the violent mindset.
The terrorism will persist in one form or another until the ideology of violence is countered with another ideology based on peace.

School, collages and universities, all around Pakistan would remain close a week from October 21, 2009 to October 26, 2009. Holidays always bring cheers and joy to students but this time it brought terror and panic, the panic of being a victim of terrorism. Terrorism has shocked Pakistan this October very badly. Figure of the killed in these terrorist attacks has been raised to 180 (according to BBC reports). It made worst and horrible impressions on students specially. Two bomb blasts at IIUI Pakistan, shocked every student of Pakistan not only IIUI-ians.
Real threat is not that these terrorists are going to kill us; real hazard is that they are making us be deficient in unity, morals and education. Pakistani students, in this high-speed era, lack behind seven days. Today, when every second matters in the world of science technology and education we – the Pakistani students – have missed a trillion billions seconds.
Students, as Quaid –e- Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah used to say, are the future of Pakistan. And this future is left behind to face ignorance, panic and terror. Militants real targets is not our bodies, they want to aim our minds, our unity, our moral values and above all Pakistani sovereignty. This is not a war; it’s a fight for your morals and for your country. They are not only killing us, they are making us mentally paralysed. Militants’ and terrorists’ and radicals’ appetite is not blood and mass, it’s the thoughts and morals that can make Pakistan more flourish.
Pakistan is not just an area with planes, trees, hilly sides and water falls; it is a Motherland. This does not belong to those politicians who come and go before seasons change and not those who; in the hard times, packed there bags, rushed to embassies, get the visas stamped and fly overseas. It belongs to those who suffer and survive of it, it belongs to those to get hurt and die for it. It belongs to us!
We can make it more flourish and more prosper only when we are educated. As Quaid –e- Azam advised students, “Let me give you this word of warning: you’ll be making greatest mistake if you allow yourself to be exploited by one political party or another… Your main occupation should be – in fairness to yourself, in fairness to your parents, in fairness to the State – to devote your studies.” – (Addressed at Public Meeting Dacca, March 21, 1948).
Do not let yourself be a victim. Real threat is not to our bodies, it is to our mind, thoughts and thinking. This threat is to everything which can do some good to Pakistan. Educate yourself, be aware to danger be familiar with real armour. Education is main power. Get it and go for it. Let the education work to fertile your minds not only enhance your resumes and heavy you pockets. Be aware to real dangers. They can remove our bodies but they can remove the thinking and morals.
Do educate yourself, not only in technology but other fields as well, because now, it is a matter of honour, the honour of Sabz Hilali Parcham (Pakistani Flag). Be aware and do not let anyone to play your morals. Real targets are not bodies; actual targets are morals and unity of Pakistan. May be at some point we belong to different religions, races, colors and culture but above all we belongs to one Motherland – PAKISTAN…!!!
