Virtual threat

The article Combating the new-age spies by Girja Shankar Kaura (Sunday Tribune, July 7) is informative. To reduce, if not entirely stop, cyber crimes and terrorism, the National Cyber Security Policy is necessary and must have more teeth. To make the policy effective, we need to ensure its implementation in letter and spirit without any loopholes. We must ensure national security with integrity and honesty of purpose.

Tactical test

Apropos the articleMusharraf case will test Pak leaders’ maturity by Nasim Zehra (Sunday Tribune, July 7), there is a remote chance of Musharraf’s comeback as the people want democracy to exist and thrive. The army is lying low, seeing the end-game of the last dictator. Sharif has seen everything that a politician can experience — the best and the worst. He can create a history of sorts in forgiveness, a rarity in Pakistan politics. Sharif should live up to his name and prove he is indeed “sharif”.

Peace and stability in the neighbourhood is always desirable. Musharraf’s arrest under the charge of treason is likely to affect normalcy in Pakistan if the matter is not handled with due wisdom. This development may not find favour with the Pakistan army. It is imperative to give priority to pressing problems of shattered economy and disarrayed security. Pakistan must be brought to the level of a functioning development state. The legal case against Musharraf may take its own course without much interference from the ruling party. It will be in the overall interest of Pakistan.

Leave nature alone

This refers to the article Development yes, but not at the cost of nature by Sunita Narain (Guest Column, Sunday Tribune, July 7). Right to a clean and ecologically balanced environment is a human right in itself. Developmental activities which will leave legacies of degraded environment, enhanced risk of disease and hunger, and blighted future will violate the fundamental right of right to life under the Constitution. Rights and environment must be seen as interdependent means and objects of development. Each generation should use the natural system to improve the human condition.

Inspiring tale

The biopic “Bhaag Milkha Bhaag” on Milkha Singh deserves accolades (No velvet drapes, enchanting nevertheless; Fifty Fifty; July 7). It captures the rare emotional and evocative moments of his life from the traumatic experiences of Partition to his crowning success in athletics. It epitomises how a man can survive in a complex situation, reconcile with his ghastly past and realise his full potential by sheer determination and hard work. We need to highlight the achievements of legendary Indian heroes in other walks of life to inspire future generations.

Harmohit Singh, Hoshiarpur
