Taliban in Pakistan is being strengthened
Focused on spreading its form of Sunni Islamic rule, the Taliban views any expression of religion outside of its prescribed bounds as punishable by imprisonment, torture, and even death. Shiite Muslims are deemed apostates. All of this spells danger for religious freedom and for Christians in Pakistan.
Reuters reports that the Taliban is facing economic collapse only a couple of weeks after regaining control. Therefore, this may be the perfect time to pull the purse strings. If D.C. wants to stifle the Taliban’s power and protect religious freedom, it should work quickly to cut off the financial lifelines essential to the group’s advancement.
Referring to Jesus Christ, Acts 4:12 says, “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
