Pakistan; the saga continues

Eight months after the massacre of school children in Peshawar, an incident which shook Pakistan to the core, Capt. Isfandyar Bukhari moves the nation with his fearless and brilliant combat with the militants. The 28-year-old soldier led his troops from the front, received straight bullets in his chest but managed to prevent another major tragedy involving large scale civilian casualties. The story of the soldier with an exceptional profile, which included the highest award ‘Sword of Honor’ from Pakistan Military Academy, adds another chapter to the story of Pakistan struggling to fight back Islamist militancy. The rationale behind this ongoing war, however, remains as fuzzy as ever.
