‘University Of Jihad’ Gets Public Funds Even As Pakistan Fights Extremism

Pakistan’s so-called university of jihad is led by a man who proclaims himself “the father of the Taliban,” and counts some of the world’s most notorious terrorists among its alumni.

It also receives millions of dollars in aid from the government of the restive Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province along the Pakistan-Afghan border, even as Islamabad carries out a national program to tackle extremism.
