Pakistan Frets Over Femme Fatales
Continued from previous page
"The piety of holy warriors has shown its true colors - the sanctity of the holy month of Ramadan seems irrelevant to them as evidenced by the Peshawar suicide hit carried out by a female bomber.
Pakistan has witnessed a string of terror attacks following the May 2, 2011 killing of Bin Laden in Abbottabad. It seems that the very culture that the terrorists claim to uphold - of keeping a woman untouched by male hands and covered in a veil as well - is exactly what these monsters are using against us. If women are the new lethal weapons against the citizens and the state then counter steps must be drawn up to face this threat. Women, especially those in the baggy burqa, should be searched without exception".
