A Two-Pronged Approach of the Taliban Leadership in Religious Matters

Taliban’s behaviors have been complementary to their words and statements. There has always been a matter of contradiction between their words and actions.

Every day in our country, thousands of people, stand several times facing the Qibla – the direction to which Muslims stand while praying – and say that Allah is the Greatest. Those who have just wielded their swords and have the razors with which they have cut the throats of their opponents, and their guns are ready to do more killings, perform ablutions and repeat to the sky that God is the greatest. They may recite many verses and reasons for the greatness of God, and for some hours they can recite the sermon of His greatness. It is said in the language that the greatest God, who is alive and present everywhere, is closer to us than the jugular vein and is aware of all the actions and behaviors of human beings.

But when the impulsive place of prayer returns to the work of politics and business, there is no sign of slavery to God in their behavior, and they are so arrogant as if there is no being, God, and power greater than that preacher, commander, and leader in the universe. They sit in the place of God to prove their larger sect, faction, individual and family, they have shaded blood for years and usually bury the servants of God in the black soil. Sociologists must investigate the relationship between those heavenly acts of worship and spiritual acts. Why does God Almighty become God in the greater language and in the supremacy of sect, nation, language and individual? What is the connection between all the never ending propaganda trying to deceive themselves, using the religious argument in proving oneself greater than the others? Why do those who constantly speak of the greater God fight all their lives to establish themselves greater?

Religious leaders seem to believe in the God they preach to their warriors and loved ones. It seems that all the verses and sayings that are repeated like magical utterances empty the minds of reason and calculation. Otherwise, how can a person who has repeated and preached God as the supreme creator of him and his like since childhood become arrogant like Mullah Hibatullah or like his followers who believe in the greatness of Mullah Hibatullah? Mullah Hibatullah, who calls his commandments Sharia and his emirate the rule of God over his servants. When ever politics are argument by utilizing the religion as the instruments, the supremacy of God turns nothing more than an excuse for the oppression of slaves and the sub-ordinates, the exploitation of the hungry, and the usurpation of power and property. The actions of fanatical mullahs and religious politicians are a greater violation of God’s orders. They are engaged in the engineering of creation by using the baseless religious arguments. A creation in which color is found in its particles and in which the effect of any finger is not similar to another finger. The faces of no human being is the same as another human being, all forests, seas and mountains are full of signs of correctness and the need for diversity. Consider how religion becomes the engineering tool of a helpless creature who face the Qibla at least five times a day and repeat their faith to the greater God and asks him for forgiveness, but current the God’s works.

With the radical religious school-building project, the Taliban are trying to turn the country into an arsenal of “elders” and to turn the talented children of work and coexistence into arrogant robots into destructive robots. The robots, each of which, as long as it seeks, propagates the larger behemoth and its leader, and when it becomes the commander himself, he places himself in the “bigger” position. The arrogant ones, who, if they become leaders, caliphs or emirs, think that God has dissolved them, and whatever they say, the order of that is the greater unity, and whatever they want, is the will of the Almighty.
