World must unite to defeat the evil force.

WE have no words to express our shock and horror at the carnage perpetrated by militants against schoolchildren at a militaryrun public school in Peshawar on Tuesday. We condemn in the strongest possible terms the dastardly attack on a school causing death of some 132 children and nine staff members including teacher. Our heartfelt sympathies to the bereaved families. By claiming responsibility for the monstrosity enacted, the Taliban have once again exposed their evil face. Those who can indiscriminately shoot at children from pointblank range are the worst scum of the earth and cannot claim to have faith in any religion whatsoever, let alone Islam.

The entire humanity shudders at the enormity of the savagery that the Pakistani insurgents perpetrated at the school. Even Afghan Taliban, who are no less brutal in their methods of exterminating military as well as civilian targets, could not support their Pakistani counterpart's action and have condemned the school carnage as unIslamic. But why have the Pakistani Taliban descended so low as to shoot and kill schoolchildren? And what do they want to achieve through such vile methods? Killing children cannot be a way to seek retribution, as they have claimed, for Pakistani military's action in their home turf in the Northwestern frontier region of the country. Such abominable acts can only beg characterised as cowardice of the despicable kind. The world community, especially the Muslims, must stand as one to fight and defeat these enemies of humanity.
