Pakistani school bombers killed by their own bomb!

Three Pakistani militants belonging to a pro-Taliban group were killed by their own bomb as they tried to plant an improvised explosive device (IED) in a girls’ school in Pakistan’s scenic Swat Valley, known as “the mini Switzerland of Pakistan”. Read this news article for more information.

Maulvi Omar, a spokesman for Pakistan Taliban leader Baitullah Mehsud, has warned that there will be suicide bombings across the country if the government does not stop its operations against the militants in the Swat Valley, that was once a popular tourist destination.

Pakistani forces have been fighting pro-Taliban militants in the lawless Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) in Pakistan’s North-Western Frontier Province (NWFP) bordering Afghanistan. Afghan President Hamid Karzai has often accused Pakistan of not doing enough to root out militants who operate out of Pakistani territory.

In this case, the IED that the militants were trying to plant in the girls’ school exploded prematurely, killing all three of them. Shame on the mediæval cowards for trying to plant a bomb in a school!

    hmm….Raj i think it is not they who are medieval…they were brain washed….for they didn’t have where else to go…it is like trying to make you or me a terrorist,we will never find their ideals acceptable for we were ‘hit’ like that🙂 the only way to stop all this is to hit the base…as in a pawn chain,you need to hit the base pawn to break the chain🙂

  2. I understand what you mean, Vishesh. Terrorists are usually brainwashed into carrying out acts of terror. Maybe they are the victims of circumstances themselves. They might have been driven to this by lack of other opportunities. But still, I feel it requires cowardice to bomb a school and a backward, regressive and mediæval mindset to oppose the education of girls.

    Personally, I loved that their plan completely backfired on themselves……
