Pakistan's Security Crackdown On Militants Continues

BBC: Pakistan 'kills 100 militants' after Sufi shrine attack

Pakistan says it has killed more than 100 militants in a security crackdown following Thursday's attack on a shrine that left at least 80 people dead.

A suicide bomber blew himself up among devotees at the Sufi shrine in the town of Sehwan.

Pakistan has reacted with raids across the country and by lashing out at Afghanistan which it accuses of tolerating militant sanctuaries.

So-called Islamic State said it had carried out the attack.

It was the latest in a string of bombings by the jihadist group.

In response, some 18 militants were killed in southern Sindh province, where the Sufi shrine is located, and another 13 in the north-west, officials said. It is unclear where the other alleged terrorists were killed.

So how do liberals explain ISIS attacks in Pakistan?

If it is not about Islam, then what is it.

ISIS and Al Qaeda are theologically and historically correct versions of Islam.

That is there is no hihjacking.
