Beheading of Two Sikh Men

khyber.jpgIt seems to be the talk of the community. Two Sikh men are claimed to have been beheaded by the “Taliban”. I do not have any independent details, but do believe we should make sure we understand all the information.

The BBC has reported the beheadings of Jaspal Singh and Mastan Singh in the Khyber and Orakzai areas. The two men had been abducted and extortion money was demanded to the family. The BBC has made no mention of the Taliban, although this is widely being reported by the Indian media.

With the breakdown of law and order following the 2001 invasion into Afghanistan, we have seen a complete deterioration of law and order. Many seem to be claiming that the Taliban caused this, but in a situation without security, it will be difficult to find out who are the real culprits. The area is infested with criminals.

The Taliban is hardly a united grouping. Scholar, Juan Cole, states that there are at least 4 different groups. Further confusing the situation, it must be remembered by the Sikhs that the Taliban in the same region rescued Sikhs before.

With this in mind, I am eager to hear thoughts.

    The Taliban murder muslims in cold blood, what is surprising about them murdering Sikhs in the same way.

    Peshawar is a place not many people on this planet dare to go and not many live to there youth irrespective of their relgious affliation.
    Sikhs are most likely a collateral damage as the Taliban must be seething with frustation at not being able to get their revenge on Drones. (Technology wins in war)
    In any case the boys in the finest tradition of SIKHS stuck to their FAITH.
    May waheguru bless their souls.

    Hey so I guess this wasn't some move of frustration, those kidnappers wanted money in return for the safety of the SInghs… sounds like some one is going broke, and now are using these tactics to fund there fight. I hope these Sikhs pick up arms against those people.
    I don't see the Taliban letting out their frustration on Sikhs because they can't shoot down drones. They are smart fighters and are keeping the Americans on there toes. Having said that there will probably be more Sikhs kidnapped, I pray to god that our Singhs pick up arms against the radical's of Islam. Be the fighters that we brag to be but actually put it to use and stand up against these people!

    Sad to see an anti- india sentiment being given more prominence in this post rather than questioning Pakistani govt's inaction after this sad event. Why is the Pakistani govt not blamed for not reacting considering how Indian govt is always under fire on this site? You guys should all move to Pakistan. Maybe then you'd realize what being a minority is.

    although not directly related implies these muslims in the North West, thus Afghans too, are intellectually deficit and lets face it their religion is aggressive, and yes we Sikhs have lost are Lion nature against them..but is this an Indian problem? Does anyone in India help when Skinheads beat Sikhs in the UK? Or as they have been settled there ages, they are now British problem? Or is Sikhi, like islam first and formost, in which case we need to press for justice

    I wouldn't call the Muslims of Afghanistan 'intellectually deficit', nor should it be implied that they are all aggressive either.

    There's a lot of stories going around as to why these two Singhs were beheaded. I'm not exactly sure myself.

    Also, those drone attacks aren't something to be proud of. They have killed a disproportionate amount of civilians and has lead to an even more justification for young Muslims to join the militant movement. These are crimes against humanity and are certainly not part of any recognized or legally justifiable war (not that the Just War Theory can be morally supported).
