Taleban or Taliban?

Talib I think means a student, coming from the word ta'lim, meaning education or instruction; taliban is plural. "Taleban" seems to be a transliteration difference.

Not a Pashto specialist but I can't see that it matters all that much.

Apparantly we shouldn't use either as it means student.
Yea got that rammed down my throat last week at an RFCA meeting, apparently we should all stop using that term but when you see the PM et al using it I can't see it changing soon. Apparently the minority communities are getting upset by the term
