Father of Taliban says ‘Islamic Republic of Pakistan stands with infidels’

SAMIUL HAQ

PESHAWAR – The spiritual father of (outlawed) Taliban has claimed that Islamic Republic of Pakistan stands with the infidels (non-believers) and for that facing the wrath of holy warriors.

Maulana Samiul Haq – the leader of his own fraction Jamiyat Ulema-e-Islam-Sami (JUI-S) – otherwise known for the spiritual leader of outlawed militants, was addressing the Aman Jirga organized by Jamat-e-Islami (JI) in Peshawar on Thursday.

Sami stated “In the worst dictatorship,” referring to former president General (rtd) Perven Musharraf’s tenure, “Pakistan was made the part of war against terrorism. The Taliban in Afghanistan were and are right to defend their freedom against the oppression of US. But Pakistan was made the part of this war unprecedentedly. That was the reason, war was brought to the cities of Karachi, Lahore, Islamabad, Rawalpindi and all over the country.”

He also maintained that tribal elders and tribes support the dialogue process. He also said that in All Parties Conference (APC) all political parties have had agreed to adopt peaceful ways to deal with militancy.
