|Islamists in India have been cheering for the Taliban ever since the group took over Afghanistan following the exit of US forces. A Delhi riots accused said, “Let me give you guys a piece of good news – Ashraf Ghani has resigned. Thanks to Allah ! Slowly and gradually, it will lead to the establishment of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan (governed by the Taliban).

Poet Munawwar Rana likens Taliban to Maharishi Valmiki, claims they fought for ‘freedom of their land’
Once renowned Urdu poet Munawwar Rana made objectionable comments on the Hindu Dharma and community by drawing false equivalents and rhetorics with Taliban. Rana has been going around defending the Islamist organisation in media interactions. In a wrangled interview with TV anchor Deepak Chaurasia, Rana defended the Taliban tooth and nail.
When asked about the Taliban, Rana upheld his ecosystem’s narrative by calling them mere ‘aggressive fighters’ and not ‘terrorists.’
Rana went ahead to make a dastardly metaphorical statement to defend the Taliban. “Valmiki became a God after he wrote the Ramayan, before that he was a dacoit. A person’s character can change. Similarly, the Taliban, for now, are terrorists but people and characters change”, exclaimed Rana.
He added, “When you speak about Valmiki you will have to talk about his past. In your religion, you make anyone God. But he was a writer. Okay, so he wrote the Ramayan, but we are not in competition here”. (Is there anyone in Rana’s religion who can be called ‘God’ ? But you can find plenty of terrorists, Jihadis, notorious criminals, rapists, etc. amongst them ! – Editor)
