A begining

News reports say 'Operation against LeT-Dawa launched in AJK'

One official told The Times that among those arrested was Zakiur Rehman Lakhvi, an LeT activist whom Indian officials have accused of masterminding the Mumbai attack.
I welcome this step. I do not have any idea if indeed the right people have been arrested or this is an eyewash; but still it is indeed a beginning. Pakistan till now has been blindfolded, probably now they have opened their eyes wide and are looking at the ground reality. I support this, I cheer them to do more, to snub the terror in its roots.

PS: Amit raised an interesting and quite obvious point in his comments to my earlier posting. He asked what is the logic behind being compassionate to the lone terrorist caught by Mumbai Police. Well, I agree there is no reason we should show any sympathy or compassion other than humanity. My point is supported by a woman who lost her husband and daughter to this terror attack who gave a statement, forgiving the terrorists!

"We must send them our love, forgiveness and compassion," Kia Scherr told reporters Tuesday of the Mumbai attackers, nine of whom were killed by Indian forces. "As Jesus Christ said long ago, they know not what they do. They are in ignorance, and they are completely shrouded and clouded by fear, and we must show that love is possible and love overpowers fear. So that's my choice." Alan Scherr, 58, and Naomi Scherr, 13, were among 25 people who had traveled to India for a meditation retreat with Virginia-based spiritual group Synchronicity Foundation, to which the Scherrs belonged.
Very magnimous of Kia and I agree with her. Love, forgiveness and compassion separate us from these terror gunmen! That does not mean I am asking for them to be let loose. Only let the law take it course and let us not fill our own hearts with hatred but compassion for these people who have lost their way.
