Pakistan's terror state credentials were further underlined today. As Pakistan's Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif was shocked into virtual inaction by the Indian surgical strikes, the terror state's official patron Hafiz Saeed took charge.
At a packed public rally he took centre stage and directed the Nawaz Sharif government to give a free hand to the Pakistani army. Within minutes the Prime Minister obliged and proclaimed that his government had given Pakistan's army a free hand to avenge India's cross-LoC counter terror operation.
If Saeed had been a respected ordinary citizen no one would have batted an eyelid. But as we know Saeed is a US blacklisted and un-sanctioned terrorist. And therefore only a terror state could be expected to bow to the wishes of a terrorist. Only the leadership of a terror state would allow a terrorist to preach 'jihad' and that too against a neighbour.
