‘You're probably sitting in West or some Gulf country and don't know reality of so called "jihadi" culture and mindset which is actually takfiri that has spread in Pakistan thanks to establishment blunders.’
As per your post one who is in West or some Gulf State is unaware of a reality of ‘Jihadi culture and mindset that is actually takfiri’. As you are so seemingly aware that you are able to figure out ‘who is unaware’ than pls, in the light of your knowledge inform us further about:
-Afghans fighting an occupation of their country by who ever they may be, is a Jihad and they are rightfully tagged just as Jihadis only and not as freedom fighters, or as Mujahidens like before during the Russian occupation of Afghanistan. Why?
Even your intent of the question is wrong here because you are focused on labels and terms. What differentiates terrorists from freedom fighters are their actions not their words. So, ask yourself this, what is allowable in Islam in conducting war and you will answer your own question on who was a freedom fighter and who was a jihadi in 1980s or 2009.
-No offense intended, lets assume that Pakistani was attacked and occupied under the same pretext as Afghanistan, and somehow you had to take up arms, than what would you prefer to be labeled. A terrorist, a Mujahid fighting for the liberation of his country or Just a jihadi?
See my answer from above. One thing I would not do is kill fellow Pakistanis indiscriminately as not only is it wrong, but counterproductive. Unfortunately, brain dead takfiris cannot understand this.
-Further assuming that you are not just a Pakistani but a Muslim also. Pakistan govt is over whelmed by the occupying forces and public has to take up arms. Would you prefer to stay put or would you take up arms in liberation or defense of your country?
See answer from above. I’m not sure why you keep asking hypotheticals when Islam is clear on the rights and wrongs. Only takfiris are confused and want to confuse others.
-What will you call those elements who dress as Taliban, and attack only government institutions, armed and equipped through our known enemies. Who are they?
They are enemies of the state of Pakistan and its security services.
-What will you call those elements who also dress as Taliban and attack busy market places or in general busy public places. Who are they?
Clearly both enemies of the state of Pakistan and terrorists. I'm surprised you are not able to answer this question yourself. Every muslim of sane mind would not think twice before answering this question like I did.
-Do you know that Afghani fighters have made it public through media that they do not, have not attacked or believe in killing of women and children?
Kudos to those Afghan fighters who don’t attack civilians, but we know that some of them, influenced by takfiri qaeda ideology do exactly this. Allah knows their fate best.
-A kalma go is forbidden to be labeled as a kafir. A Muslim at heart will never call Muslim a kafir. Who are the people exactly, who do such a thing?
Takfiris. I have personally listened to Jaish and Lashkar takfiri leaders give speeches and even talked to some of them. My interaction with them goes back than 2 decades and before 9/11. It is during these talks I began to realize how their views would destroy Pakistan one day.
Kindly update our knowledge that we lack but you happen to be blessed with and as our good luck is among us right now!
A rational response will be very much appreciated.
