Is Pak. PM’s Vow of War Against Terror Mere Rhetoric?

Hafiz Saeed Still Openly Issues Threats against India

Hafiz Saeed, one of the world’s most-wanted men with a $10 million US bounty on his head, has vowed revenge terror attacks against India for the massacre of children at a Pakistan school yesterday.

Pakistan’s Taliban has claimed responsibility for the attack that Hafiz is blaming India for, a common escapist strategy to mislead the public..

Hafiz Saeed’s threat, made on the country’s national television, comes even as Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif vowed to ensure that “not a single terrorist is left in Pakistan.”

Hafiz Saeed is the founder of Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT), a terror outfit banned in Pakistan but the establishment takes no action against him for his periodical threats against India. He is allowed to move freely within the country.

So, is Mr Sharif’s pronouncement that he would wage a war against terror a mere rhetoric?
