There is little doubt that sometimes the best way to make sense of the transmission of texts, debates and commentaries is to dive deeply into codices of collected texts (majmūʿa-s) #manuscripts #Islamic #intellectual_history 1/
One good example is the majmūʿa MS Majlis-e Shūrā (Tehran) 5284 which includes ten texts mostly copied by Sulṭān Muḥammad b. ʿAlī Shāh Iṣfahānī in 962/1555 in Bharuch in West India 2/
The collection begins with some works of Jalāl al-Dīn Davānī (d. 1502) - usually called Muḥammad b. Asʿad al-Ṣiddīqī in the incipits - reflecting on Naṣīr al-Dīn al-Ṭūsī (d. 1274) works on the #intellect and #nafs_al_amr and on the logical notion of #conception_taṣawwur 3/

HUGE: Mullah Nangyalai, who was killed in a U.S airstrike along with several civilians was in fact a U.S ally, leading a militia group splintered after a rift with the mainstream Taliban. The group enjoyed CIA-backing according to the @WSJ reporting. (1/n)
The CIA was convinced by the NDS to provide support for this program to help crush Taliban in western #Afghanistan with intel & military skills of the splinter faction led by Mullah Rasool. In return the faction will receive cash, weapons & amnesty. (2/n)
Taliban attacks & assassination devasted the group, loosing part of their leadership & made them flee some of their strongholds in #Herat, #Paktika & #Zabul. Several times they had to call for airstrikes, support from Afghan commandos to rescue them from Taliban onslaughts. (3/n)

Though #Pakistan was created on religious line, #Jinnah was most liberal Muslim who never wanted #Pakistan a religious firm!
Till 1977 , Religion was just a personal choice in #Pakistan , General #Zia not only pushed religion but also took country decades backward !
#SZAB
Zia knew he had zero support from People hence he decided to take support from Mullahs and he ensured that hardcore Islam penetrate each institution in #Pakistan including #Army & #ISI !
#Soviet invaded #Afghanistan in 1979, #Zia used this opportunity to the fullest .
#US wanted to work on Proxy war, Zia got excellent platform to build these Proxies in Madrassa's of Pakistan.
