The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) laid out a declaration to commemorate the martyrdom of their Mujahideen companions who were recently killed in an encounter with the Pakistani Security forces.
The TTP claimed that in a fake operation conducted by Pakistan spy agency ISI, four of its captive Mujahideens were killed in Lakki Marwat area of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
Pakistan Army has been hammered by TTP in the tribal belts of Pakistan and the casualty rate is on the rise. This has put the Pak Army on the back-foot in their so called ‘anti terrorist operations’. The Pak army has started to lose their reputation among the masses.The TTP accused Pakistan of conducting such operations in order to restore their tarnished reputation.
The dreaded terrorist organisation, in its declaration, has sought to teach military professionalism to the Pakistan Army. In its declaration, the TTP said that there are war rules which need to be followed.
It is ironic that a terrorist organisation is teaching a nation’s army to behave as a professional army.
The TTP has declared itself to be more professional than the Pak Army. The spokesperson of the organisation Muhammad Khorasani has said that “war has some rules which needs to be followed (sic).”
He further said: “A few days ago, our Mujahideens arrested Pak Army’s highly-trained officers in Swat. They were helpless begging for their life. For the sake of ceasefire and in respect for the National Jirga, they were unconditionally and honorably released. Otherwise, everyone knew that they were war criminals.”
The Pakistan army has been forced to beg for peace and come to the dialogue table for peace talks with the TTP. Muhammad Khorasani further said: “For some time now, the Army has been breaking the ceasefire and is raiding the houses and hideouts of the Mujahideen, but every time they have faced defeat in return. The unscrupulous Pakistan Army then takes out their anger on the helpless prisoners.”
The TTP in its declaration threatened the Pakistani state of retaliation and vowed to bring the perpetrators to justice.
Soon after the declaration, the terrorist organisation started to attack the Pakistani state. Two days after the TTP vowed to take revenge, two districts of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa were stunned by blasts within a span of a few hours on Tuesday. The targets were a police station in Kohat and Swat. The blast resulted in the killing of six people, including two policemen and injuring seven.
The TTP has a stated aim of overthrowing the elected government of Pakistan and to establish an Emirate-base on its interpretation of Islamic law. TTP has been perpetually attacking the Pakistan Army which has resulted in many Pakistan security force personnel losing their lives.
The terrorist organisation has openly waged a war, which they term as ‘a holy Islamic war’ against the Islamic Republic of Pakistan. The situation is becoming tough for Pakistan — now facing increased terror violence. Pakistan is tasting its own medicine today.
