Azhar’s Fathul Jawwad is one of the fundamental readings for those being converted to the idea of jihad. There may be different Deobandi groups; even Taliban are Deobandi, but they
share the literature especially there are more fighters but less ideologues who can create the ideology considered necessary to rally support from around them. Some analysts would make
you believe that groups like Jandullah may be responsible for such an act and not the TTP which is in talks with the government. But whoever takes responsibility does not matter
because ultimately this is the literature they are groomed on which is produced by the state sponsored jihadis.
Even if we were to imagine that the murder of over 80 innocent Christians including women and children may be the work of some foreign agency, how can we rule out the critical role that
this kind of literature would have played in convincing the person who actually blew him/herself up? Perhaps, the killer might also have read the explanation given for verse 190
that it is fair and legal to kill women who take part in fight including instigating against Muslim. Children are just collateral damage.
Surely, the killers and many more see these women and children only from that lens. And still we call these jihadis friendly Taliban.
