Refocus on ‘revenge war’ against India: Taliban to Pakistan
Islamabad: The Pakistani Taliban’s spokesman has outlined conditions for a ceasefire, which says the country must stop its involvement in the war pitting Afghan insurgents against the Kabul government and refocus on a war of “revenge” against India.
The demands, mentioned in a letter, also included the adoption of Islamic law and a break with the United States.
The letter from Taliban spokesman Amir Muawiya comes as the focus in Afghanistan shifts from a military push by NATO troops to potential peace talks, and amid speculation of a rift between top Pakistan Taliban leaders, the Daily Times reports.
The ceasefire conditions, confirmed by spokesman Ihsanullah Ihsan, said Pakistan should rewrite its laws and Constitution according to Islamic law.
Interior Minister Rehman Malik rejected any offer of a ceasefire unless it came from the Pakistan Taliban leader.
