Most of the fellow travelers in this site who have admiration for Taliban used to say:
1 They are the true followers of Sharia.
2. They oppose democracy
3. They oppose elections
4. They oppose girl’s education.
Now what we find is that Taliban are acting as the hit men of those forces which fear PPP.ANP and MQM getting back into the Pakistani senate with some credible voice.It is the retired ISI Generals who have terrific influence over these hit men to do their bidding who are calling these hits.
This is my surmise of course.
Their target is primarily ANP which shows the 5 year rule of PPP government has strengthened this political party.
