Tahir Ashrafi Asks, Whose Side Are We On?

Tahir Ashrafi, Hafiz Saeed, Samiul Haq

At a press conference held by Wafaqul Madaris Al-Arabia opposing madari reforms, Chairman All Pakistan Ulema Council Maulana Tahir Ashrafi asked a very excellent question about Jihad and the state:

He said as promoting Afghan jihad was the policy of the government, why the jihadis were now being called terrorists.

This is a question that should be taken up by every talk show host and addressed in every newspaper in the country. Is promoting Afghan jihad official state policy? If so, why are we also supporting NATO? Whose side are we on? Is Jihad official policy of the state? Does the state still consider Afghan Taliban as ‘good Taliban’? Or are they terrorists?

Tahir Ashrafi is confused about whose side we are on. Are we supporting Taliban? Or are we against Taliban? It is not clear to Tahir Ashrafi, and it is not clear to anyone else. It’s time the state answer the question.
