PESHAWAR: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam (JUI-F) Chief Maulana Fazlur Rehman on Saturday said that a nefarious international agenda was behind the attack on Malala Yousafzai.

Rehman was addressing a condolence reference for former JUI-F lawmaker and former K-P chief minister Akram Khan Durrani's son Ziad Akram Durrani at Nishtar Hall.

The party chief said that hue and cry was being made over the attack on Malala even as the world community remains silent on Aafia Siddiqui.

He said that there was an international agenda behind the attack, and certain forces were bent on achieving their "unholy goals over her innocent blood".

The JUI-F chief said that Pakistan, its economy, parliament, defense and legislature were under international pressure, and unless the country was freed from these traps, it could never prosper.

Rehman also blamed America for being a terrorist and playing the victim. “America is committing terrorism and has named it as war against terror,” he said.

Commenting on the US further, Rehman warned the Obama administration that it was creating a future stained with blood for its coming generations.

Malala began standing up to the Pakistani Taliban when she was just 11. She rose to prominence when she penned a series of articles which the BBC picked up, describing life for a girl in the Taliban-controlled Swat, where she was forced to sit at home, unable to attend school.

She was added to Taliban hit list in 2011. Two weeks ago, as she was returning home from school,  her van was intercepted and shot at. She is currently under treatment at a UK hospital.

Afridi | 9 years ago | Reply Where else in the world are innocent children murdered for wanting freedom and education? Where else are people used as suicide bombers? Where else are women so demeaned, subjugated and enslaved, stripped of their God-given rights and attacked with acid in the name of religion? The international agenda is that the barbaric leaders of this home-made-savagery want to dominate the world—using hated infidel technology to take everyone back to the stone age. Fortunately the world is unwilling to stand for it! The politicians and the people had better reign in their home-grown savages because with each such act of barbarism people point the finger at religion. When will the people finally say: “Enough is enough!”
