Execution of Indian Engineer by Taliban: A Great Savagery
Milli Gazette Online
The brutal killing of the abducted Indian Engineer by Taliban on the pretext that the captive tried to escape, has outraged the conscience of the whole world, and must be condemned in the strongest possible
words. This savage act revives in the mind the floating anecdotes associated with the pre-Islamic era of Arabian desert, when in the tribal warfare, no traces of humanitarianism were
visible. With the advent of Islam, inhumanity was replaced by humanism of the highest order, and the perpetual phases of warfare by a spirit of brotherhood, tolerance and mutual co-existence.
As it is generally believed that Afghanistan was the place of Kauravas and Pandavas, and Kandhar is the place to which Gandhari
belonged, the Taliban by these savage acts frequently demonstrate that under the false disguise of Islam, they are still displaying the mindset of the notorious KAURAVAS, and not the Islamic values.
