Targeted counter terrorism operations in Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa’s tribal belt are frequently being employed to eliminate militants, based on intelligence information. The success of these operations is, in turn, the success of Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) and is a guarantee of security. For now, these operations, like the one conducted in Balochistan’s Kech district killing four terrorists, serve as a viable counter terrorism strategy. In view of the spike in militant activities, a package of $4million has been announced by the United States (US) for counter terrorism training in Pakistan. Counter terrorism must be multi-pronged, with a flexibility to evolve as quickly as the tactics of militants evolve, even ahead of that.

Pakistan has been facing wheat shortages every now and then, which is a pity in view of agricultural resources that the country has. Data suggests that nearly 72 per cent of staple food demand in the country is fulfilled through wheat production. It is high time Pakistan looked for alternative crops, such as barley, for future production. It makes sense to make the move towards converting barley into an alternative crop for the farmers. Therefore, provincial agriculture research departments must motivate the farmers to grow barley varieties as an alternative crop to wheat.

In a few recent articles, I have focused on the importance of local languages being used. That also means big languages, such as Urdu, and it means smaller languages and vernaculars, including dialects. It is important that people get a chance to use local languages, indeed their mother tongue, in as many situations as possible, and that the written languages are maintained. One could even argue for local languages to be used more even at university, and then there would be a need for courses in those languages related to scientific work. In a way, Pakistan should be grateful to the Brits in this field, and English is widely use, albeit at the expense of Urdu and local languages.
