ISLAMABAD: Pakistan wants Afghanistan to hand over Mullah Fazlullah, believing he was hiding in Afghanistan and involved in planning the attack on Malala Yousafzai, the 14-year old activist for women's right to education, sources told Geo News on Sunday.

 

The diplomatic sources revealed that the demand was made by Pakistan Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar during her meeting with US special envoy to Pakistan and Afghanistan, Mark Grossman.

 

Grossman was told that Mullah Fazlullah was involved in the attack on Malala Yousafzai and that the US should employ its influence towards the extradition of Fazlullah.

 

Mullah Fazlullah along with his men is hiding in Kunar province of Afghanistan, the Pak-Afghan especial envoy was told.

 

Meanwhile, Pakistan had, on many occasions in the past, informed the ISAF and Afghan authorities about Mullah Fazlullah's activities.

 

According to sources, Mullah Fazlullah has executed as many as 15 cross border attacks in Pakistan over the past one year. These attacks targeted Pakistani security check posts and also its villages.

 

It has also been learnt that those who came and attacked Malala Yousafzai had escaped back to Afghanistan.

What is a "mullah or maulvi"??? There is no clergy system in Islam! These illiterate thugs who know nothing of religion or humanity gave themselves this fake designation!

The hard core liners, whoever they are, irrespective of region or religion are the genocides, should not be spared where ever they are found. This is the symbol of justice that should be practiced accross the world if we really want to make this world the craddle of peace and prosperity.

Is Pakistan fighting USA war or USA fighting Pakistan's war? This simple question is enough to understand why would NATO-ISAF hand over Fazlullah to us.

I agree with Jimmy. These are not Moulvis or Mullahs and should not called so. These are just a bunch of thugs who want to carve out a piece of our country to run their illegal activities.
