56% in FATA see Afghan Taliban as ‘heroes’: survey

Tuesday, April 28, 2009

PESHAWAR: Exactly 56 percent respondents described Afghanistan’s Taliban as “Islamic heroes fighting western occupation” in a survey conducted by Community Appraisal and Motivation Programme (CAMP) with the help of the British High Commission in Islamabad. A paltry 12.1 percent called them “a terrorist group”. More than 54 percent respondents said they were “dissatisfied with life” in FATA in general. The number of satisfied people stood at 18.15 percent, according to the survey, and 17.5 percent said they were neither satisfied nor dissatisfied. Some 73.25 percent tribesmen referred to provision of justice as “the most important service” that the government should provide in their areas followed by 64.6 percent voting for education, 52.1 percent for health and 47 percent for tackling terrorism. Just 2.95 percent respondents referred to the US as a “very favourable” country, compared with 66.2 percent who called it “very unfavourable”. iqbal khattak
