The time to secure Pakistan's nuclear weapons and weapons making capability is now. Once the Jihad breaks out in open warfare between the Taliban and the government, chaos will sweep the country, making it problematic that the weapons can be kept from the worst terrorists on earth.
Only Sharia in Swat Valley, then all of Pakistan, says Taliban leader
Sufi Muhammad says there is “no room for democracy” in Islam, a Western “system of infidels.” Taliban kill a couple accused of adultery. Activists and political leaders accuse the government of handing over the valley to extremists. Afghanistan is concerned of “dire consequences” for the whole region.
Islamabad (AsiaNews) – Sufi Muhammad, head of the Tehreek-e-Nifaz-e-Shariat-e-Muhammadi (TNSM), said in a speech in Mingora, the Swat Valley’s main city, that Sharia is the only law for the valley and will be implemented in the rest of Pakistan.
“There is no room for democracy in Islam,” the Islamist leader also said. Western democracy was a “system of infidels” and has divided the country thanks to the support of the Supreme Court and the high courts.
Hence all judges in the Malakand division should be withdrawn “within four days”; if these demands are not met, there will be “consequences”.
The decision to implement Sharia in the Swat Valley was agreed by the government of the North West Frontier Province (NWFP) and the TNSM in order to bring to an end years of violent conflict in the area. Sharia came into effect last 16 February, a decision that Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari signed into law on 13 April after it received unanimous support in the National Assembly.
