PESHAWAR: A spokesman for the Swat Taliban has threatened to kill 14-year-old schoolgirl Malala Yousufzai’s father after a failed attempt to assassinate his daughter, said a report by Reuters.

Sirajuddin Ahmad, a spokesman for “Radio Mullah” Maulana Fazlullah’s Swat Taliban which previously had control over the Swat region, told Reuters that two killers from Fazlullah’s special hit squad had been sent to target the young schoolgirl.

The Swat Taliban militia, known to work under the Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) umbrella, has a force of around 100 men specialised in targeted killing, fighters said. They chose two men, aged between 20 to 30, who were locals from Swat Valley, Reuters quoted the fighters as saying.

“We had no intentions to kill her but were forced when she would not stop (speaking against us),” said spokesman Sirajuddin Ahmad, now based in Afghanistan’s Kunar province.

Ahmed said the Taliban held a meeting a few months ago at which they unanimously agreed to kill her. The task was then given to military commanders to carry out.

In another report, the Associated Press quoted the spokesman as saying that the meeting of the Taliban leadership was held two months ago.

AP further quotes Sirajuddin Ahmed as saying that Malala Yousufzai was warned three times to stop her activities promoting “Western thinking,” but she did not.  The last warning was conveyed a week ago, Ahmed told an AP reporter.

A military offensive had pushed Fazlullah out of Swat in 2009, but his men had melted away across the border to Afghanistan.

Earlier this year, Fazlullah’s men kidnapped and beheaded 17 Pakistani soldiers in one of several cross border raids.

“Before the attack, the two fighters personally collected information about Malala’s route to school, timing, the vehicle she used and her security,” Reuters quoted Ahmed as saying.

They decided to shoot her near a military checkpoint to make the point they could strike anywhere, he said.

On Tuesday, the two men stopped the bus she was riding home in. They asked for Yousufzai by name. Although the frightened girls said she wasn’t there, the men fired at her and also hit two other girls in the van. One of them remains in critical condition.

Now that they had failed to kill Yousufzai, they would target her father, Ahmad told Reuters.

Ziauddin Yousufzai, the headmaster of a girls’ school, is on their hit list for speaking against them, his activities to promote peace in the region and for encouraging his daughter.

“We have a clear-cut stance. Anyone who takes side with the government against us will have to die at our hands,” Ahmad warned. “You will see. Other important people will soon become victims.”

Earlier, TTP central spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan had already claimed responsibility for the assassination attempt on the young schoolgirl. However, it is unclear why the Swat Taliban spokesman Sirajuddin Ahmad has come out with this statement after an earlier statement by the TTP central spokesman.

Also, Close the border of Afghanistan, so no one comes this side for any such activities. These Talabans, are no longer Muslims, since they do not follow Sharia.....they only follow money. Ane will kill anyone for money. Wake-up Pakistan, and kick them out.

May Malala and her family live a healthy life. This is an atrocious act by the TTP, Fazlullah group. However, we need an answer to one question. Why is the Fazlullah group being openly sheltered in the Kunar region of Afghanistan under American supervision?? This group has been in US controlled territory for about a year and has exported terror by attacking Pakistani military posts and beheading soldiers and then retreating back to US controlled Afghanistan. What kind of an ally is this? One of the groups' spokespersons also spoke openly to Reuters from Afghanistan. What is this? The Pakistani people and government must demand from the Americans to stop sheltering these terrorists and either hand them over or conduct a military operation against them by themselves. They need to stop being hypocrites.

I dont understand why Taliban gives interview particularly to their emenies ie.Reuters and Al-Jazeera which are controlled by non muslims....How come USA and team are not able to identify them and kill them when they are so much in touch with their news channels??Are they real talibans or the USA puppets who carry such attacks on innocent people so as to defame the REAL TALIBANS?

our Military can't kill this monster or they are just letting do whatever until general sahab change the mood?????? very lazy and laid back attitude of Pak security agencies, they do not think fast and do not act fast and often it is too late....there should be no mercy for TTP, root them out and finish them one for all kill them all...........period.

Many young girls were being lashed, killed by Taliban during the 1990's, and Pakistan supported it, now this same sub-culture has hit Pakistan, all of a sudden we see public out cry....Pakistan is the root cause of this all, they allowed Taliban to flourish.

They shoot our daughters, they behead our soldiers, they burn our businesses... Let's eradicate this serpent that has threatened our creed, our religion and our country! PLEASE! Delay the elections if need be. Until such time that this threat is removed, there can be no progress in Pakistan.
