The public execution of a young man in Mohmand Agency, tribal areas situated on Pak-Afghan is a clear proof that Taliban backed by terrorists have been ruling the tribal areas. Rulers of Pakistan instead of fulfilling their duty are busy in power game. The whole tribal areas are in the grip of terror and fear. The dangerous aspect of the story is that terrorists of international fame hiding in tribal areas are getting more time for preparing plans for more terror attacks in the world.

The United States can still play a role in giving defeat to terrorism. The only way for taming terrorism is the sincerity of rulers led by US President George W. Bush. According to newspaper reports, a man was executed in public by Taliban militants in the Rahim Korona area of the Mohmand Agency.

The Taliban had sentenced Zaiver Khan to death after finding him guilty of hijacking vehicles and killing a number of people.

After the execution, the death toll in the ongoing clashes between the local militants and tribesmen rose to 13. Three militants, three children and a woman were among the dead.

Local people said the militants had set on fire houses of several people belonging to the Dadukhel tribe and kidnapped six tribesmen.Over 1,000 militants with heavy weapons mounted on trucks besieged a locality near Michni and carried out house-to-house searches for alleged criminals.

Militants’ spokesman Maulvi Umar told journalists that the Taliban from Khyber and Bajaur agencies had also taken part in the clashes.

The execution was carried out in a field where a large number of militants had gathered around.

They brought the blind-folded man and, according to witnesses, a militant pointed his AK-47 rifle at his head and fired a shot as others raised the slogans of “Long Live Taliban”.

When he fell on the ground militants started dragging his body around. Maulvi Umar said one Taliban fighter had been killed on Saturday.

He claimed that they were fighting with people who were involved in kidnapping and other anti-social activities.

Lower Mohmand’s assistant political agent Shahidullah Khan told journalists that clashes had stopped and there was calm in the area. He said that a jirga had failed to resolve the issue through negotiations.
The End
