Despite emergency in Pak, Taliban removes national flag from SwatNovember 14th, 2007 - 8:35 am ICT by admin
Taliban leader Maulvi Fazalullah is moving around half of the Swat area like a ruler with full protocol and has appointed his own ‘governors’ in Tehsil Kabal, Matta and Khawazkhela.
Fazalullah has ordered setting up of Islamic courts for providing justice in areas under his control and opened a complaints register in his headquarters in Iman Dherai.
There is a feeling of achievement among the militants over the banning of private TV channels all over the country as they think Musharraf had implemented their point of view in this matter, The News reported.
However, Fazalullah is reportedly facing some opposition from a section of society.
Thirty-two-year old Fazalullah is not a Mufti, he cannot issue fatwas, many well-respected Islamic scholars of the areas don’t like him but they are not ready to speak against him because he is popular among local people, many expressed their views on the condition of anonymity.
According to official sources, more army troops will launch its operation in Swat to contain al Qaeda-sponsored Taliban.
The Taliban commanders of Swat, Bajour, North Wazirastan and South Waziristan have decided to adopt a well-coordinated new strategy. They will open new fronts to counter the new operation. (ANI)
