Certainly the so called “land of pure “Pakistan’s state sponsored terrorist carry out the task. Now Pakistan under constructed theme blame that the attack were prearranged in Afghanistan because they want to create gap among Pashtuns. But in a very meticulous way the Pashtun responded to this crafted narrative and directly put the finger on the man in Khaki (Pakistan Army)”.
