Why do the Taliban prefer to kill on Fridays? â€“ by Abdul Nishapuri An innocent child, a victim of Taliban's war on Allah - Photo Credit: BBC Urdu Here I am, once again, trying to muster up some emotional and physical energy to write a few lines in condemnation of the Taliban terrorists (and their supporters and apologists). Today, on Friday 9 July 2010, a Talib suicide bomber exploded himself â€œin the way of Allahâ€ (as Qari Hussain would probably claim) or â€œin reaction to the USA and Pakistani governmentsâ€™ unjust policiesâ€ (as Imran Khan, Hameed Gul and Munawar Hasan would indeed state), killing at least 65 innocent persons (including children) and injuring more than 105. According to Xinhua, Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has claimed responsibility for the attack. This admission was also reported in a local TV Channel Dawn News. The people, the Taliban attacked today, were those who queued outside a government office in Pakistanâ€™s Mohmand tribal region (in the town of Yakaghund) in order to receive donated wheelchairs for disabled and elderly persons. However, given the frequency of the Taliban and Sipah-e-Sahabaâ€™s consistent attacks on the people of Pakistan, I have become relatively insensitive to the gravity and barbaric nature of such attacks. My thoughts are instead focused on perhaps a petty coincidence, i.e., the Talibanâ€™s choice of the day. For the last three years (in fact, since General Musharrafâ€™s military operation against the ISI-sponsored terrorists holed up in Islamabadâ€™s Red Mosque), it is not hard to discern that Friday is a day of choice for the Taliban suicide bombers to explode themselves. I wonder, why? Why do the Taliban prefer to kill on Fridays? Any clue?
