Punjabi Taliban

Bookmark and Share

A report published by the Washington Times said,

Extremists from Punjab had increasingly taken control of the Taliban forces fighting the army in Waziristan, but might now be fleeing back to Punjab “which already has been the scene of multiple suicide bombings” before the army launched the offensive.

Madrassahs from all over the country in general and from Punjab in particular have been the major source of recruitment of terrorists. These Madrassahs are academic home to not only the major part of the poor youth of Punjab but also the rest of the country, particularly, NWFP. Pseudo Islamist parties and a number of foreign actors provide financial and all other type of support to these Madrassahs. These Madrassahs do not belong to one school of thought but they have one common misperceived goal which is to enforce sharia through force. That's another reality that each school of thought has its own interpretation of sharia different than the other. Whereas behind the scene actors have their own vested interests and not the love of Islam, quite a few innocent educated and the rich Pakistanis and Pakistanis living abroad are also victim of the mindset that Islam can only be spread through force and the society can only be made to practice Islam through force. Since students join these Madrassahs in early childhood and remain there for their entire period of impressionable age, the students 'graduating' from these Madrassahs have only one mindset; force all and sundry to follow their version of Islam and if they do not kill them by waging Jihad implying that if in the process these jihadis get killed they will go to heaven. It was this very theme which produced jihadis to fight against Russian invasion of Afghanistan and later the freedom struggle in Kashmir. However, 9/11 reversed the situation and jihadis of yesteryears have now become terrorists. Pakistan government created these jihadis and armed them and only government can shatter them and disarm them. The government can only do this if it has political will to do it.

Although I differ, I respect your views. Didn't we create these jihadis to fight against Russian invasion of Afghanistan? Please suggest if there is a better option other than disarming these jihadis.

Where does Islam permit use of force? Can you win the hearts and minds of people by force? The interpretation of Jihad in Islam is misunderstood and even exploited by pseuodo Islamists. How did weapons and ammunition move in Lal Masjid?
