PESHAWAR: The leader of the banned Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) Hakimullah Mehsud on Saturday directed his militants in North Waziristan to abide by the peace accord struck by local Taliban chief Hafiz Gul Bahadur with the government for the maintenance of law and order in the area.
“O mujahideen brothers! As you know that the Pakistani and Afghan Taliban under the leadership of Mullah Muhammad Omar Mujahid are engaged in jihad against the crusaders and infidels, and are supporters of each other in the ongoing holy war, the enemies do not want to see us united and disciplined against them and are trying to divide us,” the TTP leader said in a pamphlet, a copy of which was available with The News.
The TTP chief said it was binding on the local Taliban to abide by the agreement and decisions reached with the government for maintaining the law and order in North Waziristan.
He said all the “mujahideen”, including the local and foreigners, were being directed to gladly follow the decisions of local Taliban taken with the government for smooth running of the administrative affairs of the area.
They were also asked to extend cooperation to the Taliban in implementing the decisions and do not raise any objection to the agreement.
