Taliban kill Pakhtuns

TALIBAN militants have taken responsibility for most of the attacks
and suicide bombings inside Afghanistan. They have especially been
engaged in wiping out Pakhtuns over the last seven years; and this
brings us to the conclusion that there is some involvement of hidden

Hundreds of people are killed by the Taliban and the foreign troops. …
If the Taliban militants show no sympathy towards helpless citizens,
their counterparts (the foreign troops) are also showing sufficient
signs of brutality. The American troops are loath to spare even a
donkey rider.

In today’s world, the Pakhtun and the Taliban have become synonymous
terms. But the reality is that the Taliban are targeting the Pakhtuns
while the Parsiwans are enjoying a relatively secure life. It shows
that the Taliban are anti-Pakhtun and that they are backed by anti-
Pakhtun forces whose sole aim is to keep the Pakhtuns under-developed
and under-privileged. That is why we are witnessing the ongoing crisis
only in the Pakhtun areas on both sides of the Durand Line.

Southern Afghanistan, including the eastern wing, is faced with a
crisis. But surprisingly, the north, where Parsiwans are in a
majority, is peaceful and the foreigners prefer to stay there. In the
south, more than 50 per cent of the schools have been destroyed while
teachers have been crippled. Islam does not allow such acts … for
working for the government or educating the non-educated! Acid is
thrown on the faces of girl students or they are simply killed. The
Taliban are killing Pakhtun leaders. The Pakhtuns are caught between
the devil and the deep sea.

Who said that the Taliban are fighting for Islam? Only a fraction of
them can be called jihadis. The rest are puppets in the hands of
others. Some are asked why they didn’t attack Dostum who killed
thousands of innocent Afghans. …It seems that the Taliban are using
the name of Islam to serve some other goals. In fact they are defaming
Islam. — (Jan 21)
