Islam recommends slitting of throat: Fazlullah
* Gee, where did he get this idea? Surely he must be getting his religion all wrong, don’t you think? Is this the same Islam which, in the words of Â US president GWB, is all peaceful and good? Â “The face of terror is not the true face of Islam. That’s not what Islam is all about. Islam is peace.Â Islam’s] teachings are good and peaceful, and those who commit evil in the name of Allah blaspheme the name of Allah”Â
Peshawar, Jan 31 : Tehrik-e-Taliban Swat chief Maulana Fazlullah has said Islam recommends slitting the throat of a man if he is charged with espionage, adding that this is also the Sunnat of the Holy Prophet (PBUH) and hisÂ companionsÂ acted upon this.
Fazlullah was replying to allegations that the Taliban slits throats of people and even digs up dead bodies of men from graves and then hangs them.
“I am also ready for a debate with the Ulema on this issue,” he added.
Talking to the BBC, Fazlullah said he has given permission for girls’ education up to the fourth class, and hinted at lifting a ban on female education in the Swat Valley.
“We will shape up a new strategy which will send a good message to the world,”Â he said.
* So blowing up girls schools was not good PR? And now the ‘good message to the world’ is that girls can go to school till 4th grade? Great! That’ll cover it!
Fazlullah said he was ready to help establish the government’s writ in the Valley in accordance with Shariat andÂ spiritÂ of ideology of Pakistan, but made it clear that he will not allow the revival of Lord Macaulay system in the area.
When asked about the destruction of schools by the Taliban, he alleged thatÂ securityÂ forces had also bulldozed some of the schools in the Valley and “we have videos to prove this.”
The Taliban demolished those educational institutions, which the security forces were using as bunkers. Even obscenity was being promoted there, Fazlullah stated.
The Taliban chief maintained that the military operation has been intensified in Swat after Army Chief General Ashfaq Parvez Kayani’s visit to the area.
He accused the security forces of killing civilians in Nangolai and Manglore and of throwing their bodies in the streets.
The government has already denied these allegations, The Nation reports.
