Pak wants Afghanistan, ISAF to take action against Malala attacker Fazlullah
Pakistan's Foreign Office has expressed hope that the Afghan Government, as well as the International Security Action Force (ISAF), would take action against Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) commander Mullah Fazlullah, who is currently hiding in Afghanistan.
"We have shared dossiers on Fazlullah both with the Afghan government as well as ISAF. We are intensively engaging both sides to take care of this issue. There are some responses and we are closely working on that," The Express Tribune quoted FO spokesman Moazzam Ali Khan, as saying. He confirmed that Pakistan had requested authorities in Afghanistan to take action against the militant.
Mullah Fazlullah is regarded as the mastermind behind the attack on 15-year-old education campaigner Malala Yousufzai, who was shot in the head and neck on October 9. She is now recuperating at a hospital in Birmingham, UK.
U.S. officials have said Fazlullah is hiding in eastern Afghanistan, but have feigned from taking action against him since he is not linked to the Al-Qaeda.
U.S. Ambassador to Pakistan Richard Olson, however said that action would be taken against Fazlullah if any credible evidence is found about his presence in Afghanistan.
