Mian Shahbaz Sharif is credited to be the real brain in the Sharif family and an astute politician. It is hard to comprehend that he has lost sight that the political game in South Asia is growing every more complex by every passing day. Taliban fighting the foreign occupation in Afghanistan are a different beast compared to Pakistani Taliban fighting their own state. Not all Taliban are terrorists and not all terrorists are Taliban. I wonder which particular group has Mian Shahbaz Sharif acknowledged to have a common ground with.
To be fair, Mian Shahbaz Sharif has made an attempt at some sort of retraction by claiming that his comments have been taken out of context. I wait for him to put his comments in context to help the suffering souls in Pakistan to understand that how can those who are being killed and maimed on almost daily basis can have some common ground with the killers are murderers. At the altar of terrorism there is no difference between a Punjabi, Pushtoon, Sindhi, Baluchi or a Muhajir. Terrorists do not have favourites, they have targets.
