Reorganisation of the talibans is a challenge

The so called representatives of Islam, the talibans have revived themselves in Afghanistan. The talibans have established an empire of kidnapping to get their demands fulfilled, these days. For this they are aiming at the members of government administration or the persons working in foreigner's institution for the development, journalists or members of the NGO's for the welfare of the people. The talibans kidnap them & use them as a tool to get their demands fulfilled. Usually their demand is to release their arrested comrades. They were encouraged at the time when on June 6 they kidnapped an Italian journalist with his driver, at a place named Helmond & got their five talibani companions released in lieu of them. Along with them an afghani journalist Ajmal Naqshbandi was also kidnapped. As the government didn't let off the talibani revolutionaries in lieu of Ajmal's release so the talibanies killed Ajmal.
The cruel talibanies are working on to get released their companions in lieu of the persons kidnapped & it is an anti-Islamic & inhuman design. On the last July 19, the talibans kidnapped 23 South Korean Christian helpers. There were many women & children among them. By now, two of these Korean citizens, a 42 years priest Ve Huge Ku & 29 years Sim Shangu Min have been brutally murdered. The talibans were demanding release of 8 of their comrades in lieu of these kidnapped Korean citizens. Before this in Nimrose, province, two French relief workers were kidnapped. The Frenchmen were working in a non-government educational institution in Afghanistan.
On the next day of kidnapping of the volunteers of South Korea i.e. on July 20, four judges of Afghanistan were kidnapped. After that the dead bodies of all these four kidnapped judges were found in District Dehman of Ghazni province. The responsibility of their murder was also accepted by the Talibani revolutionaries. Similarly, in the last month in the Panjwai district of Kandhar province in Afghanistan, the talibani revolutionaries shot dead justice Qazi Nemtulla. The limits of brutality & inhumanity don't end here. They killed one of their Talibani comrades, Ghulam Nabi who was of Pakistani origin. The talibani activists doubted that Ghulam Nabi was passing their secret information to the American army. Misfortunately the talibans used an innocent of 12, to cut the throat of Ghulam Nabi. They also issue a video tape of this incident.
Day by day worsening conditions in Afghanistan is not only a cause of worry for America & Hamid Karzai government of Afghanistan but is also a cause of worry for the Muslim world because of the cruel & anti-Islamic behaviour of the talibanies. The talibans are of the view that America has established its control over Afghanistan & Iraq & we can't tolerate it. They say that they would continue their bloody struggle here till the foreign armies are present here. According to the talibanies the American government & the dummy government of Afghanistan set up by America & all the persons who work for this government are our enemies whereas the talibani fighters have declared a crusade against their neighbour country Pakistan's Parvez Musharraf government. The talibans are of the view that General Parvez Musharraf is trying hard to implement the American policies in the Pakistan & the Qabaily territory adjacent to Pakistan. According to them they will not tolerate it.
On the other side, the reorganisation of the Taliban fighters has worried, from the UNO to the American President George Bush. An estimate reveals that the number of these fighter talibans has touched the number of millions. Just to consult about the fresh condition that is deteriorating in Afghanistan, President George Bush held a meeting with the President of Afghanistan Hamid Karzai at Camp David. Bush has already announced that America will leave no stone unturned in search of the terrorists. Bush has already warned that if there arose the need, the American army will not hesitate to take military action at the doubtful interior areas of Pakistan.
Some paradoxical facts are also being seen during the inhuman activities of the Talibani fighters. For example, General Parvez Musharraf is finding himself in a fix between the Talibans & the American leadership. As the Talibans are looking at Musharraf as a tool of play in the hands of America & they have declared a crusade against him whereas America is accusing Musharraf of being soft & sympathetic towards the talibans. Similarly during the meeting of the President Bush & Karzai, Hamid Karzai accepted that Iran is playing an important role with the Afghan government for establishing peace in Afghanistan whereas American doesn't agree to it. The Bush administration accuses Iran of helping the Taliban revolutionaries for disturbing peace in Afghanistan. In the same way different views are being put forward in South Korea regarding the kidnapping of the South Korean citizens. Where we find that everywhere the Talibani revolutionaries are being criticized at the same time there is also a group that considers America & its policies responsible for the kidnapping of the Korean citizens. The persons who favour this view state that America should come forward in this hour of trouble & play a decisive role for the release of South Korean citizens.
Although America is giving $10 billion to Afghanistan as help this year which is meant for strengthening of security measures in Afghanistan. But the fact can't be denied that extremist attacks in Afghanistan are also increasing day by day. The death rate of innocent people is also constantly rising. In spite of it, it gives comfort to know that there is a great decrease of sympathy & favour form the common Muslims in the Muslim world towards the Talibans, the Islami terrorists, the Al Qaeda etc. the present incident of Red Mosque too showed that only the network of the fundamentalists & their associates opposed this military action on Lal Masjid while the common citizens of Pakistan just witnessed this action against terrorism.
In reality, if humanity, peace & harmony is to be established in the world & the real Islam is to be kept alive then the reigns of the Islam should not be allowed to pass in the hands of the extremists. The cruel deeds of the Talibans or the Talibani thoughts can be representatives of the Satan but not of the true Islam.
