Lahore: Pakistan’s Interior Minister Rehman Malik has challenged the Pakistan Taliban by saying that the terror organisation must produce Hakimullah Mehsud’s video to prove that he is still alive.
The News quoted Malik as saying that Hakimullah Mehsud had died of wounds inflicted in a US drone aircraft attack in January.
Hakimullah was hit within 72 hours after the release of a confessional video of Jordanian doctor Human Khalil Abu-Mulal al Balawi, who killed seven CIA agents in Khost on December 30.
The video, which showed Hakimullah sitting with the Jordanian double agent Balawi, was released in the evening of January 9 and Hakimullah was hit in a drone attack in Shakoti on the night between January 13 and 14.
Meanwhile, Malik telephoned Senator Abbas Kumaili to clarify that Imamia Students Organisation (ISO) was not being banned.
According to him, false reports were being circulated to create misunderstanding between ISO and the government.
