Why are we not surprised that there is a bombing carried out in Lahore at this particular time, let me tell you why, because we all knew it was going to happen as soon as Pakistan Super League announced that the final of the PSL-2017 was going to be played in Lahore. So who exactly doesn’t want the return of sports in Pakistan? – The answer to that is quite simple, its India. That is because India was behind the brutal terrorist attack on the Sri-Lankan cricket team in Lahore in 2009 in order to deny Pakistanis the sense of stability and normalcy which would have arrived with co-hosting the cricket world cup. Why would India allow normalcy to return to Pakistan when its pumping billions into terrorism to create the opposite in Pakistan?
According to security sources intelligence agencies had already warned of a major terrorist attack. Lahore was being seen as a potential hot spot for terrorist activity in light of a major sports event that was to happen in this city, final match of the Pakistan Super League 2017. Lahore has in the past faced a similar terrorist attack on Pakistan cricket. Earlier, PSL 2017 was marred by a match-fixing scandal orchestrated by a bookie connected to an Indian network. It Looks like PSL in particular and Pakistani Cricket in general is yet again being attacked from all directions by Pakistan’s mortal enemy. They want to to torpedo any event which might send a message of stability in Pakistan and the Indian media is already rejoicing.
This is another attack at the very heart of the Pakistani nation because only just when things were starting to look good for Pakistan on the international stage, the enemy has resorted to the same dirty tactics. We need to make the world understand that India has been supporting terrorism in Pakistan for a long time, in the 70’s in the form of Mukti Bahini and since 2001 in the form of TTP and Baloch Terror Organizations. Pakistan has to stand up to Indian terrorism and respond with an iron fist.
