Mountains of Swat, the beautiful valley of our adorable country, are shrieking for peace as the conditions of swat are changing from bad to worse. The incident of flogging has startled the entire nation. In this situation one can wonder the condition of people abiding there in Swat? And therefore it can be apprehended that the impact of current situation will last for years to come.
Taliban have transformed the land of this precious valley into a battle field. As they have already refused to lay down their arms as part of a deal that included the introduction of Shariah law, the consequences and repercussions will be visible soon in form of extending their activities into other areas. Taliban have taken custody of the mines of Emerald. If such types of fearful acts beef up in Swat, Taliban will also push in the areas out of Swat.
And in order to get rid of such malicious acts, change in policy is need of the time which should be based on national interest and not any kind of political interest. The ongoing war affected the beauty of the area by large. Locals keep on recalling the incidents when they pass by a torn apart home or street.
In my opinion if government will not take accurate steps soon Taliban will mash this beautiful valley by implementing their Shariah which only aims at brutality. If the situation prevails the same way for some more span of time it is an eminent fact that Pakistan in general and Swat in particular will turn into 1980’s Afghanistan.
