    Taliban: A Perfect Islamic Society
    By Keerthi Reddy (Sword of Truth, Issue# 1999.36 September 4th, 1999)
       On July 16, 1998, the maggot ridden naked corpse of a woman caked with old blood was found in a ravaged back alley of Khairkhana, Kabul in Afghanistan. After hours of investigation, the post mortem revealed that the corpse belonged to a young woman named Shukria, the daughter of Ali Mardan . . .   The Taliban is comprised of Pakistanis and Afghanis who are considered the true "Mujahideen" or "holy warriors of Allah" because they have established a purely Islamic state which rigidly conforms to the "pious Muslim ideals" which were outlined and set down by Prophet Mohammed.
