Same vision distinct outfits
It is a well-known fact that a fruitful vision of every outfit is carried out by other new launched outfits in all over the world. The vision which has harvested worst results or has been defamed and criticized by the humanists has never been carried out by any outfit. Ironically, the vision, of so-called Islamic organizations like Tehrek Taliban Afghanistan, Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU), the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), Tehrek Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and Boko Haram, is emerging and spreading widely in several Islamic countries, which are believed to be a catastrophe. Their names are different but vision is the same as to fight for a real Islamic state where the Shari’ah would be only source of law.
Tehrek Taliban Afghanistan is an Islamic fundamentalist political movement in Afghanistan. It spread throughout Afghanistan and formed a government, ruling as the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan from September 1996 until December 2001, with Kandahar as the capital. However, it gained diplomatic recognition from only three states: Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Mohammad Omar has been serving as the spiritual leader of the Taliban since 1994.
While in power, it enforced its strict interpretation of Sharia Law, and leading Muslims have been highly critical of the Taliban’s interpretations of Islamic law. The Taliban were condemned internationally for their brutal treatment of women. The majority of the Taliban are made up of afghan Pashtun tribesmen. The Taliban’s leaders were influenced by Deobandi fundamentalism, and many also strictly follow the social and cultural norm called Pashtunwali. After the attacks of September 11, 2001, the Taliban were overthrown by the American-led invasion of Afghanistan. Later it regrouped as an insurgency, a movement to fight the American-backed Karzai Administration and the NATO -led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF). The Taliban have been accused of using Terrorism as a specific tactic to further their ideological and political goals.
Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU), an organization of militants mostly from central Asian Uzbek state, has claimed that its suicide bombers carried out attack on Karachi airport. It also originates in North Waziristan and giving a hand to TTP for fighting against the present political system which they believe is against of Islamic rules.
As a result, they claimed that the attack on Karachi airport was a revenge for the killing of its people and tribesmen in last month’s air strikes in North Waziristan. The afore-mentioned vision of Boko Haram is also carried out by this organization too.
The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), is a well-known extremist organization, has captured Mosul which is the second biggest city of Iraq. The motto of this organization is to fight for an Islamic state in Iraq and nearby Islamic countries. Therefore, the consequences of this capture will shake the entire region. The ISIL is now a position to operate in greater comfort, turn Mosul into a safe haven for other extremist groups and plan a further expansion of the territory under its control through militant operation.
Tehrek Taliban Pakistan (TTP) is basically originated in KPK, particularly, in North Waziristan but it has distinct branches with different names in several parts of Pakistan. The motto of this outfit is same like Boko Haram that western education is sinful, specifically; girls’ education is not tolerated by this outfit. This organization has blown up so many girls schools in NorthWaziristan and attacking school vans is still carried out. They are mainly fighting for imposing Shari’ah in Pakistan and declaring Pakistan a pure Islamic country.
Boko Haram, which in the Hausa language broadly means “western education is sinful”, is based in remote northeast in Nigeria. It has also kidnapped more than 250 school girls on April and recently killed eight civilians and burnt a church in Nigeria’s central plateau state’s capital Jos. The basic motto of this outfit is fighting against the present system which they believe is not according to the rules of Islam and they do believe that one day they will become successful in this regard.
The emerging vision of these above mentioned outfits is spreading widely which is absolutely no more than a catastrophe. The recent attack on Army Publich School in Peshawar is an alarming threat to educational institutions that is the second largest attack on innocent children in world history. These kinds of attacks will make suffer the young generation into psychological disease which really will ruin the upcoming talents of whole region, particularly, those who lost their heavenly children and all those who were the enrolled students of that institution. Therefore, the vision of all those above mentioned outfits is known more dangerous than cancer.
