Afghanistan has proved to be an unlucky state for Pakistan while sharing its longest border. Some previous pacts made by governments of Pakistan/heads of state have resulted in infiltration of Afghanis in Pakistan without any calculation or record. This infiltration was never limited to humans only but the traditions, customs and norms of life were also migrated with them. One of these customs or one can say means of survival has been their forceful inception of young boys to fight for them in their wars and battles against strong enemies.
As soon as Taliban entered swat and began their activities, their first step was installation of fear through show of weapon. Then, they created an atmosphere where they asked local men to have beard and women shall remain in veils, as it is Islam. With this, there remained no difference between who is local and who is Taliban. I mean who can actually differentiate among true Taliban and locals if they have the same dress code?
With the operation initiated against their activities by government, they simply adopted the same policy of forceful inception of young boys of the area to fight for them against the army. In such a situation when one’s near and dears are fighting on the side of Taliban, who can actually support the government operation? This leads to no choice for the locals to simply support them. In such a situation many families have also reported that they cannot even leave the area as Taliban have their children who are brain washed and used as a human weapon.
