Sorry, but I am still a little confused regarding this...
I understand that Talibans in Pakistan can Rally there, March from there and place Control markers, but, what other things can they do there? I suppose they can´t do Sharia or place Opposition markers, is it right?

There's no point in them doing Sharia or placing Opposition markers.

We did rule that they can do Extort in Pakistan, however this does activate the Guerrilla which exposes them to Airstrikes (which represents Coalition use of airpower across the border or the Pakistani Army, not otherwise shown, sweeping the area).

Basically, you can do any operation that makes sense...but Opposition/Sharia doesn't make sense in Pakistan. The Pashtun/non-Pashtun stuff still applies in Pakistan though (I believe one of the Pakistan places is non-Pashtun?). Also, if you want, you can place Taliban Control markers...I never do because if there are any pieces in Pakistan, it is Taliban control of that space, but note that conditions that require Taliban control without other caveats do include Pakistan (again, as long as it makes sense...ie, not Sharia/Opposition). This is particularly important when using the bot for the Taliban...although it might come up in other situations as well.

Correct, Balochistan is not Pashtun.
