Having placed the name of a journalist on Exit Control List (ECL) the government according to the Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan had saved itself from earning the blame of setting the shooter free. Could there be anything more absurd? Not having recovered from the initial shock of seeing the name of a journalist on ECL this jolt exposing the thinking heads going weird in decision-making poses the question on the quality of leadership we have at the helm. Since its publication, layers of questions have been added to the Cyril Almeida’s story exposing the fragility of civil-military relations. The story puts the blame on the military, for allowing the good terrorists, in the garbs of Jaish-e-Muhammad and Jamaat-ul-Dawa, roam fearlessly.
