LUBP appreciates the vocal truth by Pashtun nationalist Facebook page, Justice For Pashtuns:
The post is clear in condemnation of Deobandi Taliban of TTP-ASWJ. The rejection of a minority view of shariat is not surprising. According to the post, Deobandis only make up eleven percent of the population of Khyber Pakhtunkwa and FATA areas.
The same principle applies to the rest of Pakistan where Deobandi’ faith is no more than 20 percent of the population. They have heavy funding from the Saudi Wahhabis/Salafis which enables them to build a large number of Madrassas and organize politically and through terrorist organizations like TTP, ASWJ or LEJ as well as others.
The fundamental fact remains that Deobandis are a small minority of the population and their intolerant version of sharia, which is in essence the Saudi version of sharia, is not acceptable by eighty percent or more of Pakistan, comprising Sunni Barelvis, Shias, Salafis, Ahmadis, Christians, Hindus etc. This perversion of sharia is clearly Riyal induced. The older Deobandi ulema dating to pre oil money tended to be much more moderate. The Saudis continue to encourage the lunatic fringe of Wahhabized Deobandism because it legitimizes their own brutal Monarchy. Very simply the more converts they have to the Wahhabized thinking within the Arabian Peninsula and outside it the more legitimate is the “caliphate” of the “custodians of the two holy mosques”.
