Know how Taliban’s Badri Battalion 313 got its name
According to the Daily Mail, the Taliban commando unit is named after the Battle of Badr, which is mentioned in the Quran, the holy book of Muslims. In this battle of Badr, Prophet Muhammad had defeated the army of his enemy 1400 years ago with the help of only 313 fighters. According to an India Today report, the Badri Battalion, like any other Special Forces commando unit, has been trained in combat techniques at an undisclosed Taliban hideout. It is believed that the Pakistani army has helped the Taliban in this training. These commandos appear to be adept at fighting in urban areas, while other Taliban fighters specialize in mountain and guerrilla warfare. When the Taliban first shared information about this battalion, it was said that the Taliban are sending the message that they are equipped with modern military facilities. Everyone knows about the tenacity of the Taliban militants, but the lack of state-of-the-art equipment used to hold them back from the US and NATO forces.
Talibani commandos are more lethal than Pakistani army!
With the help of night vision device of Badri 313 Battalion, Taliban militants have now been able to conduct guerilla attacks and counter attacks at night. Zaid Hamid, a Pakistani who has fought a war in Afghanistan, says it looks like the Taliban have gone a step further. Hamid said, ‘When I was part of the Afghan Mujahideen, we defeated the Soviet Union with the help of their weapons. We either snatched it from the Soviet army or given it to us by the allies. He said that the Taliban have gone a step further and snatched these weapons from American and Afghan forces. The Taliban are now far ahead of the shepherd’s army. Pakistani experts say that the Taliban is no longer a group of farmers but a professional paramilitary force. An expert has even said that the members of Badri 313 Battalion are armed with more lethal weapons than Pakistani soldiers. Indian expert Major General GG Dwivedi says the Taliban are inspired by religion and are not surprised to see their weapons. It is a threat to the security of the entire region.
