Taliban-Army soldier debate

At the Internet Archive,, someone deposited an audio recording that purports to a debate between an army soldier and a Taliban.   This is an attempted transcript of that recording.  Unfortunately only the recording is available, with no context, when, where, who, etc.  Also, the recording evidently starts in the middle of the debate.

From a letter from Iqbal to Jinnah

Also the insertion of Jawaharlal’s socialism into the body-politic of Hinduism is likely to cause much bloodshed among the Hindus themselves. The issue between social democracy and Brahmanism is not dissimilar to the one between Brahmanism and Buddhism. Whether the fate of socialism will be the same as the fate of Buddhism in India I cannot say. But it is clear to my mind that if Hinduism accepts social democracy it must necessarily cease to be Hinduism.
