Pakistan News – The outlawed Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) Tuesday defended the attack on Malala Yousafzai, rejecting that she was an innocent girl and labeling her as ‘an American spy’.
The central spokesman of TTP, Ahsanullah Ahsan, in a detailed statement issued to the media said Malala’s date of birth is July 1997 which makes her 15 years four months old today. “Even if no sign of puberty becomes noticeable, this age of the girl marks the end of pre-puberty phase.”
The statement said: “In Islam and Pashtun traditions there is absolutely no room for an attack on a woman of pure virtues. But in cases where a woman is seen as a clear sinner who stands in defiance of Shariah, such a woman is not only allowed to be attacked but there is an obligatory instruction for such an action.”
The TTP spokesman said, Malala Yousafzai was ‘a spy who divulged secrets of Mujahideen and Taliban through BBC and in return received awards and rewards from the Zionists’.
“She not only spied against Mujahideen but also created propaganda against them. The Gul Makai diary is an embodiment of anti-Taliban views,” he continued.
“She has received the punishment for her sin.”
The spokesman further said that Malala was brought before the media under a pre-planned strategy so that she could pollute the minds of the youth against the Taliban.
