  1. Hanging some one is not the salution. The entire policy needs to be renovated. It is fourth high value target i.e. GHQ,Mehran Base,Kamra Base and now Peshawr airport. How many people will you hang. Will you hang all the officers of GHQ or airforce ?difinately not. Cange in our policies is seriously needed. No compromise on militancy,no soft corner,no ggod talib and bad talib,no support for any one,strict operation against them is essential to curm these menace once for all.
