BATHKELA The Tehrik Nifaz-i-Shariat Muhammadi (TNSM) said Tuesday that after Swat and Malakand, Sharia will be implemented in other parts of the country as well.

While talking to the media in Batkhela, the TNSM chief Sufi Mohammad said that the Taliban and TNSM will work alongside the government for the implementation of Sharia and will maintain peace in the region.

Sufi Mohammad also said he will not abolish the peace camp he established in Malakand and will continue the peace process in the Swat valley.

The TNSM chief added that once Sharia is implemented in Swat and Malakand it would soon after be extended to other parts of the country.

He also urged all TNSM loyalists to work towards furthering the peace process.

Earlier, Sufi Mohammad had welcomed the signing of Sharia bill as a positive sign.
