Pak media, experts involved in self igniting blame game: Editorial

Benazir Bhutto Islamabad, May 29 (ANI): After every brazen terrorist strike in Pakistan,the involvement of a ‘foreign hand’ that of America and India, is held responsible.

Pakistan media and experts, almost immediately after any terrorist strike, start linking India to it.

They tend to create such an environment that people start believing that it is indeed India which is trying to create chaos in Pakistan to such an extent that it may allow the international community to pressurize the concerned agencies to strip Pakistan of its nuclear weapon.

Amid all this blame game, Islamabad seems to be least worried about the increasing threat emanating inside the country.

This is a self-damaging policy as it will finally derail Pakistan’s national direction and let the terrorists go scot-free, an editorial in The Daily Times said.

Pakistan must realize that such propaganda leaves a negative psychological impact on the people at large, which could create trouble for the country itself.

The impact could already be seen on the world media with reports like “a secret US commando force was ready to infiltrate Pakistan to secure its nuclear weapons” or “Benazir Bhutto was assassinated by a special death squad formed by former US vice-president Dick Cheney” being published across the world.

But more than this, the biggest cause of worry is that the government officials are actually attesting these reports which certainly have little iota truth in them. (ANI)
