  1. This looks clue of an attempt to sabotage the peace of Northern Areas. Before this coward act, we witnessed the brutal murder of Abdul Waheed , Director Agriculture department Northern Areas, with other family members on December 26, 2008. We can not afford to be victim of more conspiracies, which might have been or are being engineered by any vested interest individuals, religious group, political group or by any government agency, because they are well aware of our weaknesses. We must realize that peace is our progress, diversity is our atrength, political rights and economic development is our goal.
