37. But it is not just the war against Talibans that has created the present impasse.  There are other very important factors which have a bearing on the circumstances we find ourselves in.  The Pukhtoons, being the prime target of the war on terror are completely marginalized and have to suffer humiliating pain and agony.  They have had to witness the worst collateral damage during this war.  Funeral congregations, wedding parties, prayer assemblies and innocent men, women and children have been the victim of bombs and missiles. The Pukhtoons have been denied a role in the political arrangement which has also pitched them against the government in Afghanistan besides the coalition forces.  They consider the war not only a resistance against coalition forces but also a battle for their rights.
