True Success for Al-Qaeda and Taliban in Pakistan

In Pakistan today, there seems to be a great hue and cry over the recent statement by the Emir of Jamat-e-Islami Maulana Munawar Hassan saying that the Pakistani army troops should not be considered martyrs because their contributions are supportive to the army of disbelief i.e. the US and NATO  troops. This evoked many to condemn the JI, following a stern official statement issued by the army. On the other hand, from Maulana Sami ul Haq, the rector of the Pakistani government’s blue-eyed institution and the Taliban’s seminary Darul Uloom Jamia Haqqania to the Jaish-e-Muhammad’s weekly Akhbar ul Qalam and the popular weekly organ of the welfare organisation “Al-Rasheed Trust” Zarb-e-Momin, everyone is declaring the supporters of the US and NATO troops kafir (infidel) and Mulhid (heretic) singing praises for the killers of the young army troops of Pakistan. These are the organizations and seminaries that Munawar Hassan has represented in his statements that resulted into calls for ban on the Jamat-e-Islami. Surprisingly enough, no one has noticed what is going on in Jamia Haqqania Akora Khatak, Jamia Rashidia Karachi and Jamia Usman-o-Ali Bahawalpur, the religious seminaries that not only issue such Fatwas but also give practical support to the militants of Al Qaida and Taliban. Is there any way to propose ban on Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz that has more than 50 such members in its assembly who directly support Panjabi Taliban and other terror outfits?   Many of its members were allegedly involved in a number of the communal conflicts and killings perpetrated by the terrorist organizations banned in Pakistan. The same holds true of the Pakistan Tahreek-e-Insaf that issued its membership to many people who were caught red-handed in sectarian wars and terror incidents before they joined the party. Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam’s case is no different, while a large number of the Jamat-e-Islami’s people in positions of authority had been, sometime, associated with Al-Qaida and Taliban. Even today, they exert every possible effort to keep in touch with them by providing shelter and facilitating things for their Jihadists, if not by participating in the practical Jihad
