    Religious Ideologues, Narco-Trafficking MakeFor Cognitive Dissonance in Middle East

    Religious Ideologues, Narco-Trafficking MakeFor Cognitive Dissonance in Middle East

    WASHINGTON, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- In a 10/13 SOURCES Flash Briefing, Washington Bureau Chief Dr. Clifford Kiracofe analyzes Indian intelligence reports linking major religious institution Darul Uloom Haqqania, North West Pakistan, with narcotics trafficking and Taliban leaders. The religious center has reportedly been under surveillance by Indian authorities and has been repeatedly warned to cease harboring terrorists. Intelligence reports link the Pakistan center to the Deoband religious center in Uttar Pradesh, India, currently under surveillance as a loam for Taliban ideologues.

    Kiracofe, a former senior U.S. Senate committee member on Foreign Relations, explains long-standing clan and political ties in the region. The Briefing relates narco-alliances and increased Taliban control of trafficking routes, which carry political implications for the developing coup in Pakistan. Far from halting opium cultivation due to ideology, however, the report indicates that the Taliban have both levied taxes and spurred production in the centuries-old "Golden Crescent" economy.
