How Pakistani Kids Are Turned Into Suicide Bombers

The industry of Suicide Bombing in Pakistan is pretty institutionalized.  It is an art that has been perfected.  It is used for outside of Pakistan and inside.  Basically anyone that Taliban or the other Jehadi forces – LeT, JuM and ISI – don’t like, suicide bombers are unleashed on them.

In this TED talk, this lady – Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy, Pakistan’s only Academy-Award winning documentary filmmaker – discusses how Suicide Bombers are prepared.

She calls them “Innocent” – which they are, when they are brought in.  But I do not want to use that adjective to make them seem as if they aren’t to be blamed in the end.  These same kids finally end up as teachers for others if they don’t go the suicide bomber careers.  So somewhere there is a whole breakdown of the humanity of the system.
