    Very interesting, although obviously biased towards his viewpoint, just as her story is towards hers.

    Also, it isn't a letter from "The Taliban", just from one guy.

    I think any amongst us with half a brain know that media from both sides is going to be horribly skewed and full of fear-mongering, and also that there are good, decent and honest people on both sides.

    It is unfortunately the case, however, that these people get drowned out by rampant sensationalism.

    After reading this, and noticing that the transcript text mentions "u" instead of "you", well, it lost all credibility as a legit document.

    its funny how peoples perceptions can become so twisted, he doesnt seem to have any knowledge of the persecution of Hindus by the Muslim rulers across India and the surrounding countries pre-British Empire, or the poverty wrecked thru society by the rich and powerful, and the detriment of the Hindu caste system on millions of lives from those forced to spend their lives sholving human shit, to rat catchers and other untouchables....viewing the past thru rose tinted glasses i think, not that the British did much positive during its attempted reign in the region

    plus, its great that dnbforum has embraced interesting topics without descending into the ridiculous, despite the attempts of some who shuld no better :p

    I agree with you that those interesting topics are good, I enjoy taking part and expressing my opinion, but some humor is good too, man!

    He is against teaching English ways of life in places like India which is completely fair enough, and I agree with to an extent, but I am certain that if roles were reversed the Taliban would impose Islamic law on places that equally did not want it. Forever it seems like England's history is used as an excuse for unjust means. The British Empire was a tyrant and committed a lot of atrocities, but this is no excuse for organizations such as the Taliban to act in similar ways today.

    It's a shame that everyone is represented by a Government which either is not or can not be truthful about it's actions, along with the media this fuels racial hatred between people who nothing about each other.

    Hows the fast going Karnage?

    You know this girl is gunna get the highest form of education possible given to her. The UK knows they are sitting on a political goldmine, probably why they brought her back in the first place, things happen for a reason, countless others that got shot even by our own forces never got brought back for the same medical treatment she has received, but they knew what a symbol she could become.

    1. Clever girl
    2. Gets shot for standing up to the Taliban
    3. Best medical care and education
    4. Send her back as a politician
    5. ?????
    6. Profit

    She'll either become President or they'll finish the job before she gets the chance. She's already got the Nobel Peace Prize on lock

    interesting sure jaro, but it kind of misses the point

    i seriously do not know what is going on there and i've never been so don't really know what is truth or not.

    and logikz, they are surprisingly easy although I'm having trouble praying my daily. I have been consistent from the start of this year but my father kicked me out and now I'm at a friends with no mosque nearby. its a struggle (jihad).

    Could you explain what was the point then? You've managed to post several times in your own thread without putting an opinion across.

    Seems to me Mohammed Hanif countered pretty much everything in his reply..

    didn't you read the disclaimer

    and did you read the bit where he said he regretted not contacting her beforehand.

    or maybe how the letter explains what the un and others are trying to do
