Miranshah, Feb 23 (ANI): The Taliban in Waziristan has announced forming a 'Shura Ittehadul Mujahideen' (Council of United Mujahideen) to wage jihad "in an organised manner."
A meeting of all the three groups was held at a remote destination in Waziristan, which was attended by heads of the three estranged outfits, which include Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan of Baitullah Mehsud in South Waziristan, Hafiz Gul Bahadur's Group in North Waziristan and Mulla Nazir Group in South Waziristan.
According to the declaration, the participants agreed to form a new group 'Shura Ittehad-ul-Mujahiden' after a meeting continued for three days.
The announcement described Mulla Omar and Osama bin Laden as their leader. They vowed to continue the Jihad for the enforcement of Sharia in the region.
Pamphlets distributed in the Miranshah Bazaar and other areas of the agency headquarters said the forces led by Mullah Muhammad Omar and Osama were fighting against "infidels" led by US President Barack Obama, Pakistani President Asif Zardari and Afghan President Hamid Karzai.
They quoted verses of the Quran calling people to fight a holy war against "infidels", who they said were killing innocent Muslims, the Daily Times reported. (ANI)
