Kohat: Local Taliban warns tailors to follow religious code

Bannu (women beheading on "immorality charges"), Taxila (threat to girls' school of being bombed if all girls not veiled) and now this other disturbing news from Kohat. Local Taliban have warned tailors to strictly observe religious code while sewing clothes for men and women and keep their shops shut during taraveeh time.

Kohat (Map) is south of Peshawar and Talibanization is slowly taking over all of NWFP, province of Pakistan.

Jamaat-i-Islami, well organized religious political party should distance itself by publicly condemning this as Dawn's report said that in a letter sent to tailors, the Taliban claiming to be from the Jamaat-i-Islami asked them not to play music during night and threatened to blow up the shops of those not following the orders. (Dawn Report)

The above horrific picture acts as a reminder of Taliban days in Afghanistan. Women are the first target. 17th Nov 1999, Taliban, in Afghanistan, seen in this movie publicly execute women.(click here to see movie).

Stand up and be counted against this oppression. Say "no" to Talibanization in Pakistan. JOIN ANAA mailing list (click here) and be informed.
