KARACHI: Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira on Saturday said Malala Yousufzai was symbolic of the school of thought followed by Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto, adding that, the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) followed the school of thought of the Taliban, DawnNews reported.

Speaking at a press conference in Karachi, Kaira said PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif had also been accused of taking funds from Osama bin Laden.

The minister added that in the wake of the Supreme Court's verdict in the Asghar Khan case, the government elected as a result of the 1990 elections had lost its legal standing.

He said both governments headed by Benazir Bhutto were overthrown through bogus mandate.

Kaira added that advertising campaigns using fake names had also been run against the PPP.

The minister added that Ghulam Mustafa Jatoi was used during the campaign for the creation of the Islami Jamhoori Ittehad (IJI) and was later discarded in order to bring in Nawaz Sharif as the prime minister.

Let us for one moment believe this about Nawaz Shareef. But where does the PPP stand on the issue of the Taliban (mindset included) especially after BB's and Salman Taseers murder ? Dragging your feet on both issues looks bad, to say the least.

I dont think PML-N follows the Taliban school of thought. I think PML-N does not condemn the Taliban by name because they, as in the case of many Pakistanis, are scared of the Taliban thugs and their cronies and they dont want to become their targets.

Whatever the case may be yet to be proven and PPP has been given an opportunity to prove it. As an independent from party politics, Citizen of Pakistan is totoally fade up to the rim with counter arguements. I would suggest citizenanry to rise up for core issues the nation is facing i.e. current state of corruption, napotism, target killing and cost of living and basic necessities and rights of citizenery such to acquire NIC, Passport, water, electricity and roof on the head

I do not find any big difference between the thoughts of PML (N), PTI, Jamat-e-Islami and Taliban it has become very difficult to differentiate between all above parties
