ohh no no, how can it be?, it must definitely be the taliban. How can we blame any attacks on others than the talibans?. When it happened it was taliban and now its not. Im becoming more and more sure abt that lots of bombing in innocent public places is not done by the taliban but their name is unfortunately being using for political purposes..
