On June 26th, a remote-controlled bomb killed eight persons and injured a senior Sindh High Court judge in Karachi. The Tehreek e Taliban claimed responsibility, accusing Justice Maqbool Baqar for his anti-Mujahideen decisions. The mastermind was arrested a week later, but the deadly attack is a testament to what happens in Pakistan when you get in the crosshairs of the religious militant groups. Zofeen Ebrahim interviews with the prosecutor general of Sindh Shahdat Awan and with Sharfuddin Memon, Consultant to the Sindh Government on Home Affairs, underline the need to come up soon with a foolproof system to protect those fighting the legal battle against terrorism, before the climate of fear will deter many in the fraternity to do their job.
