The extremist organization, Taliban has abducted 3 Indian labourers from Giridih in Jharkhand working in Afghanistan and has taken them captive for the last 9 months. This is not the first time they have abducted or killed innocent people who had nothing to do with them with their fight against the Afghan government or the US.
In 2017, American Army rescued an American couple with their children from the captivity of Taliban. Coleman Boyle was allegedly raped and her husband and children were continuously beaten. They were held captive for five years until rescued. In Syria, 39 Indian labourers were abducted in 2014 by the ISIS and the Indian government confirmed their death in 2018.
The story of Nadia Murad and other girls of her tribe is well known in the world. These extremist and terrorist organizations kill innocent people and justify their action by quoting Quranic verses and Hadiths.
Our ulema do not come out against these extremist organizations and even covertly support them by giving lame excuses. In 2014, they had even got justification in their actions in the event of 69 nurses from Kerala being released by the ISIS who had been kept hostage for 23 days.
This incident had given our ulema an opportunity to glorify and support them. Urdu media was agog with news and articles praising the ISIS who had treated the nurses like their sisters. But the story of Nadia Murad or Coleman Boyle does not create any feeling among these ulema and journalists.
The family of three hostages have been spending sleepless nights for the last 9 months and but no Indian religious organization or personality has condemned the Taliban or requested their release.
Indian religious organizations should raise this issue and openly condemn the Taliban for their un-Islamic acts and the Muslim fraternity of India and the world should stand up in support of the abducted labourers and create political and religious pressure on Taliban to get them released.
