Pakistan tells Afghanistan to hand over `Malala mastermind` Mullah Radio
Islamabad: Pakistan has requested Afghanistan to hand over Maulana Fazlullah, claiming that he was involved in planning major attacks in Pakistan from across the border, including the recent attack on 15-year-old education campaigner Malala Yousufzai.
According to sources, Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar made this demand during her meeting with Afghanistan-Pakistan special envoy Marc Grossman, who arrived in Islamabad on Saturday for talks with political and military leaders on "issues of bilateral and mutual concern", reports The Express Tribune.
Fazlullah has been involved in planning 15 major attacks in Pakistan, from Afghanistan, including attacks on security check posts and villages which have claimed almost 200 lives, the sources added. Fazlullah, who is also known as ``Mullah Radio`` for his fiery radio broadcasts in Swat Valley, is the leader of banned militant outfit Tehreek-e-Nafaz-e-Shariat-e-Mohammadi (TNSM).
Earlier, it was reported that Fazlullah had sent a hit squad, comprising of two members, to kill 14-year-old Malala for being a proponent of girls`` education in the valley and speaking against the Taliban.
