Taliban Lahore, May 3 (ANI): Putting aside all appeals to lay down arms to establish peace in the Swat Valley, the Taliban’s Swat chapter spokesperson Muslim Khan has termed arms and ammunitions as ‘ornaments’ for Muslims.

“Taliban cannot renounce weapons, they are ornaments of Muslims,” the Daily Times quoted Khan, as saying.

Despite the announcement of the establishment of Darul Qaza in the region by the NWFP government, Khan said the Taliban would continue its ‘jihad’ and would not lay down arms.

Demanding the release of all the Taliban fighters locked in different jails of the country, Khan said Darul Qaza should not be secondary to any other court or constitution. (ANI)
