The author of this article Asmatullah Muawiyah is the former head of the banned terrorist organisation Sipah-e-Sahaba (Militia of the Companions of the Prophet) and the emir of Punjabi Taliban, Pakistan. In this article, he reiterates the Taliban’s ideological stand echoing Maulana Maududi’s view on democracy that it is an un-Islamic form of government and a system based on kufr (non-belief). Of late, he has been trying to have a ‘meaningful dialogue’ with the Pakistan government for reasons known to him since his organisation Taliban has declared the Pakistan government a government of kafirs though the majority of the ministers are Muslims and Islamic Shariah is the basis of the law of the land.
In this article the Maulana has tried his best to drive home the point that all the social, political and economic ills of Pakistan are the result of the 65 years of this democratic system based on non-belief (kufr) and only a system governed by the Taliban will rid the country of the corruption the country is mired in.
It should be noted that in their writings, the Talibani scholars harp on common issues of the people of the Pakistan and shed crocodile tears for them by mentioning the poverty, corruption of their leaders, plundering the wealth of the country by the feudal lords and nawabs who have captured power, and never ever say anything on the issues of killing of Shias, destroying the Sufi shrines and carrying out suicide attacks on civilians in the residential and commercial areas. In this article the Maulana has tried to show the human face of Taliban (though it has none) by shedding tears on the plight of the common people. Like most Urdu writers, he has used rhetoric and emotional rants spiced by Urdu couplets to arouse public sympathy in favour of the Taliban covering up their inhuman terrorist activities killing everyone who disagrees with them. They did not hesitate even to attack a 13 year old Muslim girl for peacefully opposing their policy. This article shows their duplicity in the worst form. We at New Age Islam will keep exposing this duplicity of these terror mongers and enemies of Islam.—Edit Desk, New Age Islam
