Taliban Islamabad, May 18 (ANI): Terming the suicide attacks and incidents of beheading carried out by the militants as ‘un-Islamic, leading Ulemas’ of Pakistan have said that militants in Swat and FATA were pursuing an agenda similar to What the enemies of the country were doing.

Several Ulema and Mashaikh from different parts of the country assembled here for a convention after which a unanimous resolution was passed which termed the suicide attacks as ‘Haram’, the Dawn reports.

“The assassination of Ulema should be stopped and sacred places, including shrines, should be cleared of extremists. Suicide attacks and beheading is Haram,” the resolution stated.

The convention also condemned the US drone attacks and urged the government to ask the United Nations to interfere in the issue.

“The government must take effective measures to force the US to halt these strikes,” the resolution added.

They also supported the Swat military operation calling it a ‘war for Pakistan’s integrity and sovereignty’.

“The elements engaged in creating a state within the state must be crushed,” they said.

Ulemas’ were of the view that Pakistan it self had created the monster which is now threatening to gulp the whole country.

“We are now harvesting the crop we sowed three decades ago,” Ruet-i-Hilal Committee chairman Mufti Muneeb-ur-Rehman said.
