In a statement, the jihadist group says intentional killing of innocent people goes against Islam.

The Afghan Taliban have condemned a raid on a school in Pakistan that left 141 dead in the country’s bloodiest ever terror attack, saying killing innocent children was against Islam.

Survivors said militants gunned down children as young as 12 during the eight-hour onslaught in Peshawar, which the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) said was revenge for a major military offensive in the region.

“The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan has always condemned the killing of children and innocent people at every juncture,” the Afghan Taliban, which often target civilians, said in a statement released late Tuesday. “The intentional killing of innocent people, women and children goes against the principles of Islam and every Islamic government and movement must adhere to this fundamental essence. The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan expresses its condolences over the incident and mourns with the families of killed children.”

The Afghan Taliban is a jihadist group loosely affiliated with the Pakistani Taliban, with both pledging allegiance to Mullah Omar. The Afghan Taliban often distance themselves from attacks that kill many civilians, but they also deliberately target non-combatants.

Last week they claimed responsibility for a suicide attack at a theater show in the French cultural center in Kabul that killed one person and injured 15. The United Nations says the majority of civilian casualties in Afghanistan are caused by the Taliban and other armed groups.

The Muslim society is divided in an extremely unequal manner between Satanic and Islamic Muslims and in favor of Satanic Muslims probably in excess of 90% and even may be up to 99%.
All because not of Islam based on Quran but of Satanic Hadith and Sunna embedded deeply in the psyche of Muslims. That there are false and ‘True” hadith in itself is enough to junk them and get rid of their influence from Muslims psyche. Also that there was no documentation of it for 250 years after death of the prophet because he himself had banned it as he knew there will be more Satans among Muslims than in any other.
The Taliban,ISIS and other Islamists acts and thinking needs to be viewed from this perspective. This terrible carnage calls for retribution never seen before. It is the duty of all Islamic Muslims to wage a holy war Jihad on this Satans and get rid of the scourge from its very roots and destroy every seed that could again sprout to raise its ugly satanic Islamist head

These taliban’s are the generation of Pakistan Army SINCE 1970’s, They were the only people who said that these are our Assets. Among them Musharaf was using the term GOOD and BAD Taliban Good are those who are the allies of pakistan and bad are those who fight against them. We heard most of the time that PAKISTAN ARMY is the world 2nd Greatest army its a “BULL SHIT”. where is their intelligence agencies what were they doing when these militants enter their Cantt area. This School is in the Cantt Area.
There are some quotations used most of the time in medical cure “That Prevention is Better than Treatment”. it means that before the attack of a deadliest virus/ bacteria the doctor has to take some preemptive action to stop the infection. Thats the good quality signs of a qualified doctor. Same is for Paksitan Army, these militants are virus/bacteria their duty is to prevent them from attacks not to resist them after they attack by raising the casualties.

I appreciate the operations headed by the SSG groups here in peshawar by clearing the area but all in vain the casualties of 141 innocent students. IS THIS A SUCCESSFUL OPERATION?…….
