6 minute video. These guys have brass ones, trying to maneuver between the Taliban and the cops.
If stupidity got us into this mess, then why can't it get us out?

It's been my experience that the only consistent thing about religions is that one can choose to follow it closely or barely at all...

But hashish is easy to get and permitted under Talibani Islam. Hmmm. If I lived in Pakistan I think I'd learn to like the pipe instead of the dram.

Of course, a real entrepreneur would buy a date farm. Date palm wine is permitted by the Prophet Mohammed. A little Yankee maple-tapping ingenuity, some good yeast, and my gawd how the money could roll in.

I'm thinking it would be a way to sell (mildly) alcoholic beverages in Talibani areas without getting shot or in the government-controlled parts without going broke paying bribes.

and I'm thinking that to even think about selling alcohol in Taliban areas would be mildly bordering on stupidity.

Im thinking if you move to a Taliban regulated area, you are pretty much immersing yourself in it...and Im not talking alcohol.

If anyone from Pakistan wants some easy to use recipes in Urdu then I can try. I do know that thread is more than 10 years old.

To place in perspective .. NYT do push their usual agenda!

In 2010 Taliban were active in North-West Frontier but never controlled Peshawar city.

Pakistan’s oldest brewery never closed and also produces whiskey, gin, vodka…..

At the Pearl Continental Hotel (attached bottle shop in Lahore) it is a sight to behold how fast those bottles can move…...……...

When in laid-back Hunza the home-made distilled mulberry wine is okay.
