❏This vs That ❐: Taliban vs Al Qaeda

Welcome to Thursday's

Taliban and al qaeda, the two terrorist organisations born out of Islamic roots, seem to be almost one and the same. Though the two talk of an Islamic world, there are much differences between the two.

While Mullah Mohammed Omar, who was an extremely enigmatic person, founded Taliban, the credit for al qaeda goes to Osama bin laden.

Al Qaeda consists of Sunni Muslims who practise Wahabism, which is considered to be the most extreme form of Islam. The al qaeda wants to establish Islamic rule and that all governments should be replaced by Islamic leaders.
