    Who ever be the next leader of the Taliban, Pakistanis will suffer. There are many questions in the minds of the majority of Pakistanis and they want their answers. I should repeat few of them here but I know it will not change the ostrich world.
    1. How Taliban came into being?
    Some seculars are trying their best to draw a line of fake relations between the TTP and Ex, Afghan Mujahideen and freedom fighters of Kashmir but failed. TTP was not on the earth at that time.
    2. Who supports Taliban?
    Many times even on Pakistani Media it was showed that TTP was using weapons of an advance technology and many weapons were marked made in USA and made in India.
    3. Why TTP is so aggressor?
    None of the TTP Taliban belongs to any Madrassa. Most of them are wanted to govt in kidnapping vehicles and children, selling and purchasing of drugs and weapons and shot down persons for money. Then why these wicked men of the society were given the name of taliban. Aren’t to disgrace Afghan’s Taliban who are fighting for their motherland. Is fighting for one’s motherland freedom is a terrorism? What will be our reaction in case of any invasion on our homeland?
    4. Are the TTP Taliban are the same as Afghan’s Taliban? How they would be same to Afghan Taliban. Many of the TTS (swat) were already found non-muslims (sikhs and hindus) in operation. Don’t we know TTP is a created platform to disgrace Afghan’s Taliban in the eyes of the world. Hundreds of non_muslims embrace Islam daily who got to know about Afghan’s Taliban and their character. On the other hand TTP has no moral value for killing of innocent Pakistanis. Islam does not permit anyone to kill innocent human, what so ever his religion is.
    Untill these confusions are cleared, we will keep on writing Taliban factors. Taliban are a ground reality and can never be defeated untill these confusions be clear in the minds of Pakistanis.
