Talibans agenda is terrorism, not Islam

NWFP Information Minister Mian Iftikhar Hussain has said that militants have outrightly rejected the peace offer of the government, security forces and the people. He said the Taliban want to spread terror and Islam or Shariah is not their agenda.

Addressing a ceremony at Peshawar Law College, Mian Iftikhar said no military operation is underway in Swat. He said the security forces are only reacting against the militants. He said the TNSM chief Maulana Sufi Mohammad wanted the government to yield to the agenda of militants and not willing to acknowledge people’s aspirations. He said the DPO Buner and his security personnel were martyred in cold blood by militants who also occupied Shal Bandai, Pir Baba shrine and other areas.

The provincial minister said the government remains committed to implementing the Nizam-e-Adl Regulation in Malakand division; he demanded that militants should hand over perpetrators of Hari Chand suicide blast to the government.

  1. in my point of view talibans are driving the islam in their own way. they have no knowledge of islam at all. they are more sticked to their cultural norms instead of islam.
