    Can we expect anything else from the ruthless Taliban? This was a tribal elder who was fighting for the cause of his nation, for those too weak to stand and for those who stood up to Taliban atrocities.

    We send condolences to the family of Majan Khan and hope that his blood is not shed in vain. We must realize that the situation has become so bad that bold and brave people have taken up arms against the Taliban in order to protect their homes and their communities from barbarity of the Taliban. They, forum readers, are willing to give up their lives for this cause. Taliban are currently on the run and are facing desperation. It is now time for all who oppose them to defeat them so no more will they harm the innocent and unable to blow up schools that build the future leaders of a nation.
