Dear Sidqi Saheb,
The Sri Lanka experience can teach the world a lot about the menace of suicide bombings.
To my knowledge, it had some unique features in Sri Lanka.
It was the most potent insurgency anywhere in the world including massive suicide bombings.
It went rampant in Sri Lanka for 28 years.
The perpetrators were no Mullahs, they were Tamil Hindus and Buddhists.
They did not hope for 73 virgins.
The insurgents had strong support from India for her vested political interests in the northern valleys of the tiny country.
Ironically, it was Pakistani military advisers that helped the Sri Lanka government in the final two years and rooted out the chaos in 2009.
So far, it is the only example that a violent suicide-aided insurgency has been quelled with force.
It was over the day their Indian sponsored leader Parbhakran was shot dead by a few ISI commandos.
