So who is the progressive here?

Pervez Musharraf was  a military dictator, who changed laws, arrested, tortured and killed people (including girl students of Islam) at will, who, at the behest of the US brought in the National Reconciliation Order, whereby those who had cheated the Pakistani people of billions were given blanket amnesty.

This allowed Mr 10% (Asif Ali Zardari, the ten percent was initial, later lt became 50% and sometimes even 100%) to come back and head the government.

The Taleban have wrested control from the feudals Maliks  of Malakand Agency, and under pressure the GoP has signed the Nizam-e-Adl regulation, which will allow Qadis to be appointed and lawsuits be decided according to the sharia. They have announced that contrary to the practice of the feudals, the women will now get inheritance. They have announced the abolition of absentee landlordism, by which  a few who had sided with the colonial masters had control of the lands and all others were obliged to work for them, or else.

Now the New York Times laments that the Taleban are going to move into Southern Punjab, where ordinary mortals are held in bondage for generation after generation by the feudals.

So who is the progressive here:

   the US government that sides with corrupt dictators and criminals, and the media of the US, or
   
   the Taleban Huh?
