Odd thing, this: Malala says the Taliban don’t represent Islam. The Taliban say that Malala doesn’t represent Islam. Who is right? Is there any way to find out? And does it matter? Unfortunately, the salient point is this: the Taliban and other Muslims who believe in the Taliban’s understanding of Islam are waging violent jihad against non-Muslims all over the world. Muslims who believe in Malala’s understanding of Islam are doing nothing effective to stop them.
“Taliban assail Nobel decision,” by Ismail Khan, Dawn, October 11, 2014:
PESHAWAR: Members of the media division of the outlawed Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan’s offshoot Jamat-ul-Ahrar criticised the awarding of Nobel Peace Prize to Malala Yousufzai, calling her an “agent of kuffar (disbelievers)”.
In English messages posted on Friday on the Twitter accounts of Jamat-ul-Ahrar spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan and the chief of its Ihya-e-Khilafat media division, Saleh Qassam, and media member Ibrahim Khorasani, commented on Malala and the award, together stating that she did not represent Islam.
Ehsanullah threatened that fighters would continue to strike people who took what to them was anti-Islamic positions.
