Mainstream Muslim religious leaders in Pakistan have formed an alliance to openly oppose the Taliban, a development that promises to give authorities broad-based support to fight militants who have imposed a reign of terror on much of the northwest.
In the past, military operations against the Taliban have evoked widespread accusations that the government was fighting Washington's war, a view reinforced by a belief that dialogue and diplomacy could rein in the Taliban's more barbarous practices....
Its nice to see that some groups will rise up to say we are not like other Muslim groups. Unfortunately, the source of their belief, the Quran, designs for both groups to be militant if they accept the Quran as the word of Allah. They MUST be hostile to all the world, they cannot help it if they trust in the Quran. Nice people maybe, bad worldview.
