By Super Admin

Peshawar, Feb.16 (ANI): A new 'sharia' law has been signed between the North West Frontier Province (NWFP) government and Tahrik-e-Nifaz Shariat Muhammadi (TNSM) in Pakistan.

"An agreement has been signed between the government of NWFP and Maulana Sufi Mohammed. All laws against sharia will be abolished and sharia will be enforced under this justice system," The News quoted NWFP Information Minister Iftikhar Hussain, as saying.

The new agreement would be covering the troubled areas of Swat Valley, and Malakand district of NWFP also.

Talking to mediapersons after inking of the new 'sharia', NWFP chief minister Amir Ahmed Hoti said the new law would bring peace and stability in the region.

"It is my hope that the armed people will disarm themselves, give up the path of violence and work for restoration of peace in Swat," Hoti said.

eanwhile, the United States has reacted strongly to the step saying the deal would merely give insurgents time to regroup, and carry out their nefarious activities. (ANI)
