some groups do not want insider status as they may oppose govt all together or feel they will have to compromise their beliefs e.g ALF. however some groups are unable to gain insider groups this could be because of the methods they practice or their beliefs. governments generally do not like to be associated with controversial groups for instance groups associated with euthanasia. other groups may be unable to gain insider groups because their beliefs do not coincide with the beliefs of the government, this means that a groups status may change depending on simply who is government. so in answer to your question some groups choose outsider methods simply because of their beliefs and others may have to use outsider methods such as consulting opposition parties as they are unable to become recognised as legitimate by the government.

What are differences between participation and observation in the comparative study of religion with particular reference to the insider's and outsider's approach?

Observation and comparison of any culture and/or religion can only be done without prejusdice by an outside, hopefully neutral person. The insider is biased. The outsider is biased by their life experiences that may see the good and bad sides of belief system. Having studied other religions see where they are different and the same. The insider could do this also, but with the bias of their active belief in their system.

What side was the taliban on?

The Taliban is a political group that ruled Afghanistan from about 1991 until the NATO invasion about 2003. They assisted terrorist groups, giving them a place to train for conducting war and suicide missions. It is quite difficult for an outsider to determine which side the Taliban might be on other than their own side. (It is quite difficult for an outsider to understand differences between groups in Islam. Many reference sources list the founder of a group with no information differentiating it from other groups!)

Why has direct action increased?

the the reason for why direct action has been on the increase in recent years could be down to a couple of reasons. firstly because if you campaign outside the normal decision making process by targeting the public and the media which will give you a huge amount of leverage on the political agenda take for example fathers for justice dressing up as superheros or the recent London riots over the increase in tuition fees. this could be because these outsider pressure group have not access point into the political agenda as other pressure groups do for example the National Farmers Union who lobby in parliament and help parliament when making laws on agriculture and who help in times of crisis like the foot and mouth out break. So this is the only way outsider pressure groups can make there voice heard. also these pressure groups do not have the organisation or the infra structure to raise the vast amounts of money that that insider groups have at there disposal to lobby in parliament.
