Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf KP government has decided to give Rs300 million grants to Darul Uloom Haqqania madressa Akore Khattak Attock, whose claim to fame is that it is a birth place of Taliban’s Islamic ideology of Jihad. Its head, Maulana Samiul Haq, is also head of political faction of Jamiat Ulema Islami and godfather of Taliban leaders and considers Osama Bin Laden a great hero of Islam. It seems Imran Khan is also following the policy of the Sharif brothers who encouraged bigotry and religious extremists in Punjab for political expediency. The support for the Taliban cause is against the National Action Plan. The pertinent question is why Imran Khan has been their supporter and sympathiser? Why is taxpayer money being given to madrassas instead of spending on government schools in KP?
