Hilal;2011, Vol. 48 Issue 2, p11
The article discusses the Pakistan government's action answering the Somali piracy captives in the Indian Ocean in June 2011. It notes that the government's victory responding the pirates has opened another chapter for the country's fight towards terrorism in the smooth use of sea-lanes without security threat to other nations. It suggests that India's high-handedness of sabotaging the efforts of Pakistan in tackling maritime piracy and terrorism in the Indian Ocean should be recognized.
