Our contacts in Kurram Agency (FATA) have shared this official order. It shows that the government of Pakistan is spending Rs 2 millions on building large madrassas in the Deobandi minority pockets (Teri Mangal and Ghoz-garhi- Muqbal area) of the Shia majority Kurram Agency.
These Deobandi areas are already stronghold of anti-Shia terror ouftis SSP and ASWJ/LeJ and have been involved in attacks on Shias and Sunni Barelvis/Sufis in Kurram in the recent past.
These minority Sunni Deobandi areas are extremely poor and backward. They need schools, hospitals, roads and water supply schemes, not Deobandi hate madrassas, which are already in abundance in this area.
Why do Pakistan army build madrassa here when it know madrassas have been involved in sectarians attacks on Shias and Sunni Barelvis in Kurram (FATA remains under the army’s control)?
On one hand the army claiming to be running operations against terrorists, and on the other hand it is building more nurseries for grooming of sectarian and extremist mindsets. When will Pakistan army stop its double dealing on JIhadi and Takfiri violence? When will it stop using Pashtun areas as sanctuaries for Takfiri Deobandis?
