Pakistan’s ad in Wall Street Journal on 9/11 - Indian Jealousy

Sphere: Related Content

An advertisement by Pakistan in America’s leading daily the Wall Street Journal on the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks has not gone down well with readers here with some calling the ad a “joke” and questioning how a country where Osama bin Laden was hiding safely for years can “claim to be a victim of terrorism”.
In the advertisement, which has a picture of assassinated former Pakistan Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto, Pakistan asks, “Which country can do more for your peace”.
It goes on to give statistics of bomb blasts, assassination plots against Pakistani leaders and civilian and military casualties that a “nation of 180 million” suffered while “fighting for the future of world’s seven billion“.
One reader comments, “Still no explanation how Osama bin Laden happened to live comfortably for a decade in a garrison town. Or the Haqqani network or the Quetta Shura, or their fertiliser factory providing the fuel for IEDs in Afghanistan.”
Another says, “a country, which is the epicentre of global terrorism, on record of running terrorist training camps since the 1980s, protecting the Afghan Taliban that kills NATO soldiers, claims to be a victim of terrorism??!!”
