Punjabi Taliban

Radicalization of Pakistani students in some 113 universities 1,371 colleges and 25000 religious schools has now become a hot debate in media and intellectual circles. Pakistan's educational system is the prime cause of youth radicalization. Education system and socioeconomic situation in Southern Punjab has compelled poor parents to send their children to sectarian schools. Extremist infrastructure and widespread terror networks of militant groups and poor governance has created the climate of fear across Pakistan. Pakistan's Punjab province is home to eighty million people and a web of Punjabi Taliban activities. In southern Punjab, extremist tendencies spread everywhere. Extremist forces gained foothold in all major cities.

I think there are many books available in the market on the Taliban issue, but books about the Punjabi Taliban are not available so for. Punjabi Taliban is an extremist group fighting NATO inside Afghanistan and Pakistani forces in Southern Punjab and Waziristan. The group of Punjabi Taliban was formed by various Pakistani banned sectarian Deobandi group.

My Book Proposals:

My Book: Punjabi Taliban: Extremism, Takfiri Jihadism and Pakistan's War on its own citizens. By: Musa Khan Jalalzai.

• The main themes and objectives of my proposed book.

1-The main themes and objectives of my book proposed book, Punjabi Taliban, is to introduce a new terrorist organization in Pakistan's Southern Punjab, fighting against the state army. The role of Pakistan's sectarian groups, specifically, Lashkar-e-Toiba, Lashkar-e-Jhangavi and Sepah-e-Sahaba in providing mercenaries to the new Taliban movement, which has established a strong network in the United Kingdom, is a constant need to be revealed. Punjab is home to nearly half of Pakistan's 25,000 madrassas. Hundreds of seminaries in Multan and Bahawalpur follow the hard-line Deobandi school of Islam. A majority of the "non-state actors" now operating in the region and also targeting the state of Pakistan have come from Southern Punjab, with Bahawalpur as epicentre.
