And the Calm Before the Storm was Broken
Islamabad was peaceful for quite some time now. The presence of the security check-posts and military bunkers at different locations was still very much there. But somehow it seemed that people were busy going about their business, carefree and calm. There seemed to be no visible fear of any terrorist activity which usually appears in full form right after such an incident.
But who knew that it was just the calm before the storm. The terrorists hit the city of serenity once again and this time the target was the Naval headquarters located on Margalla Road near Zafar Chowk. Apparently the terrorists’ thirst for hitting military headquarters was not quenched with a similar attack on GHQ Rawalpindi about a month and a half ago. They craved for more and next in line was the Naval headquarter.
The attack took place on December 2, 2009 in the afternoon and caused casualties and left numerous personnel with injuries. The people who lost their lives were naval officials. The 13 reportedly injured include a five year old Jonathan.
- I salute the ones who lost their lives trying to foil the attack.
- I pray for the ones who are injured and wish for them to get better soon.
- I can’t say anything about the terrorists as am not sure whether to condemn them or pray for them.
PS: Everybody would be please to know that our president and prime minister once again successfully condemned this terrorist activity.
