    Following NY times article is about terrorist Umar Kundi, who recently got killed in police shootout,describing how a young talented boy from small town who was in medical college to become doctor ,rather graduated into a die hard jihadi.A Pakistani military psychiatrist Brig. Mowadat Hussain Rana is trying to explain that generally younger and middle child graduate into jihadi due to neglect.All is fine with is theory.





    Frustrated Strivers in Pakistan Turn to Jihad



    Now this Pakistani military psychiatrist Brig. Mowadat Hussain Rana is brother of another Jihadi Tahawwur Hussain Rana who is currently in custody in Chicago among other things for involvement in the 26/11 Mumbai terrorist attack.Page 12 of the Criminal Complaint filed with the US District court discloses Tahawwur Hussain Rana saying this in an e-mail.

    UNITED STATES OF AMERICA vs.TAHAWWUR HUSSAIN RANA


    Now I'm sure that Brig. Mowadat Hussain Rana must have an explanation too for his brother Tahawwur Hussain Rana turning jihadi.But then Tahawwur Hussain Rana rana was one time in pakistani army.Is it that the pakistani army's jihadi culture that turned fine officer from accomplished family and well financial background turned him jihadi or is it Brigadier Movadat Hussain Rana's above theory.

    Once you're part of the services, the family baggage is left behind to a large extant. But we're talking about an army where corruption and nepotism is rife. So his stint didn't alter it. Blame people for not taking up family planning.

    tarun,
    If i'm not wrong even Tahawwur Hussain Rana was in Pak army and now they say he was a deserter.What sort of army desert can freely come and go out of pakistan without getting arrested and court-marshaled.herethe question id not about corruption and nepotism but the jehadi culture in pak army.

    Many members have said Pakistani army is a professional organization but using the concept of Jihad may degrade the services,this concept is not something that any organized army in the world would waste one second pursuing.

    I know he was in PA, and that part. I said joining it couldn't change things. Yes you're right there's a strong fundamentalist element in PA, and it's pretty obvious given the way it runs...with corruption and nepotism.

    Old saying. An idle mind is a devils workshop. Fits the case here.
