Hakimullah Mehsud’s video


Reza Jan May 01, 2010

ISLAMABAD: This is with reference to the recently-released video of Hakimullah Mehsud and your newspaper’s story published on it on April 30. The video attached to the story is months old, and has already been released. The website, SITE Intel has had this video on its website for quite some time. Whoever sent this video expects it to be proof that Hakimullah Mehsud is still alive — but that clearly isn’t the case.

Including the video on your website along with the story could be seen as misleading because it is old footage. In that context, the delivery of this video to the media does not constitute any special development with regard to Mr Mehsud’s well-being, or lack thereof.

Yasir Qadeer | 10 years ago | Reply Though TTP has claimed Baitullah Mehsud is alive and some other confirmations have also come but he has not made a public appearance for months. The video was proved to be old. This could be just one of those tactics which TTP might be doing to prove themselves as smart humans.
