“Sheep” cannot be expected to live in peace………
This “war against terror of the Taliban” in Pakistan cannot be won without the Pakistanis.
Government and/or the Army cannot win this war when 18 crore awam is not helping. The 18 crore awam is rather encouraging the Taliban. “How?” you say?
Pakistan was created for Muslims and not for Islam – Islam was never in danger in India, the Muslims were.
The Mulla pre-Pakistan was against Pakistan but now he owns it and has taken it over – demonstrated by the Committees that were ordained to determine the future of Pakistan with Mulla “burqa” Aziz and Mulla “sandwich” Sami backed by Mulla “diesel” Fazal and Molana Munawar deciding how we should live. These are our new leaders.
Islam is big business in Pakistan and millions are making a very decent living from it.
There is no ‘regulator’ for nor any tax on this business.
Government seems to have left its ‘regulation’ to God.
Just as Coke or Pepsi and McDonald or KFC market their brands, both essentially selling the same product, Mosques are mushrooming – within yards of one another – each selling their brand
These retail business outlets are multiplying as enterprising “madrassa graduates” aspire to be “career maulvis” in their own masjid.
It is a great business cum pension plan and the first investment each makes is in loudspeakers to start attracting a clientele to his new masjid
His office (pulpit) and accommodation (in the mosque) follow.
The Taliban are capitalizing on this farce to gain power and control.
It is not about Islam, it is about power and control – in case you had not figured it out yet.
They have murdered most “Maliks and tribal elders” in FATA to get rid of competition
The slogan is Islam and the “power base and infiltration safe house” is the masjid.
Every Friday Pakistanis go to masjids and listen to essentially, the Taliban version of Islam.
Why don’t these Pakistanis demand of their Masjid Imam/Maulvi to condemn the Taliban in the Friday sermon?
Till the Taliban is not discussed and condemned in the local mosque, terrorism will flourish and attract more support.
Only when the Taliban – and their ilk – are condemned in every local mosque every Friday, will Pakistan begin to see the end of their reign of terror.
If 18 crore awam have chosen to be ‘sheep’ – they can’t even decide what happens in their local mohalla mosque – the ‘qasab’ will keep feeding on them – OR – if they like and approve of the Taliban – then why are we even discussing the issue.
