The so-called Taliban fighting in Swat and Malakand are being heavily funded by some foreign agency or power. This funding will not stop until our government and media does not point that out to the world media. When Pakistan took over the Kargil hilltops, Indian media machinery ratcheted up the rhetoric about Pakistan's involvement day and night until the US President ordered Nawaz Sharif to get his army to leave the Kargil mountains. We require a similar media blitz from our guys to tell the world how Taliban are being funded by whom? That Taliban are being funded by a foreign power or agency is proven by the fact that they have access to Russian weapons. The world will take notice and do something about this menace only when we apprise people everywhere of the facts of the matter. -ENGR SHAHRYAR KHAN BASEER, Peshawar, via e-mail, May 8.
