The common mistake being made by everyone is that all Taliban are Pushtuns and all Pushtuns Taliban. I disagree with this sort of thinking. Being a resident of FATA, I want to make it clear that we neither want to be ruled by Taliban nor do we want to support these people in their misadventure anywhere else. In fact these people have been imposed upon us. We want to get rid of these people but are helpless. Tell me who would want his brother or son killed for nothing? Who wants his innocent sister flogged in public? Who wants his home destroyed by bombs and missiles? Pushtuns want peace, love, education and development like everybody else. -RIZWAN KHAN BANGASH, Lahore, via e-mail, April 25.
