In Tagore words,
From the solemn gloom of the temple, children run out to sit in the dust; God watches them play and forgets the priest.
..and these jihadis of all sorts, whether taliban or not, are just jealous of child’s play, happiness and laughter.
Yes this is an incident of extreme measure but daily many children (and also adults) go through this exploitation in the name of religion, morality and authority. The victimizers does not have to be related to have religious affiliation.
We forget that wisdom and truth is not a property of age.
