Express June 29, 2010

Forty three militants including three sons of Tehreek-e-Nafaz-e-Shariat-e-Mohammadi (TNSM) founder Sufi Muhammad were presented in an anti terrorism court in Mingora on Tuesday.


Sufi Muhammad's sons include Abdullah, Abdur Rehman and Fazalullah. These militants were arrested during operation Rah-e-Rast in Swat last year.


They are accused of terrorism and waging a war against the state.


Sufi Muhammad himself was not presented in the court due to security reasons.


The banned organization's chief was arrested last year during the military operation against militants in Swat. Sufi Muhammad was accused of supporting the Taliban and issuing decrees in their favour.

His son-in-law Maulana Fazlullah was leading the militants in Swat at the time he got arrested.

Noor Nabi | 11 years ago | Reply This is a good first step. As others have commented the likes of Sufi are, indeed, the biggest threat to the existence of Pakistan. One hopes that Hafiz Saeed will be next. The total failure and helplessness of Pakistan’s law-enforcing authorities, as well as its superior judiciary, to pin this chap down raises some serious questions. What does he know and how long has he known it?
