In the contemporary situation, there is a dire need for devising a comprehensive and holistic strategy against the faith-and-sect-based violence. While the Parliament of Pakistan has recently passed “The National Counter Terrorism Authority Bill, 2013" that aims to set up a national anti-terror body, a new strategy shall include, but should not be limited to, monitoring supporters of the militant groups in the civil and military administration, curtailing societal sources of support, addressing socio-economic causes of religious extremism and taking strict action against the use of violence. Above all, as a prerequisite for all this, an open dialogue on the issue needs to be initiated so as to challenge certain established norms and concepts and to pave the way for developing a broad national consensus.”
