No Taliban movement in Pakistan, says JUI-F chief
The chief of Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (Fazl), Maulana Fazl-ur-Rahman has said there was no such movement as 'Taliban' anywhere in Pakistan.
"We do not recognize the movement, which the forces have officially acknowledged as Taliban's. It was simply unacceptable to us," The News quoted Fazl, as saying.
Fazl also warned against dubbing anyone as terrorist.
"No one can be allowed to brand someone as a terror-monger," Fazl said.
Fazl was of the view that seminaries, clerics, and students were being targeted under a conspiracy.
"People are tired of picking up dead bodies. It's time sectarian violence was reined in. I appeal to my workers to thwart this intrigue," he said.
