The recent Taliban school attacks in Pakistan has left the entire world grieving to the point where even rival terrorists are saying the maneuver went to the extreme.
A new addition to the Al-Qaeda group is speaking out against the recent war crimes, but don’t expect them to become allies with the U.S.A. anytime soon.
Reports International Business Times:
Al-Qaeda in the Indian Subcontinent (AQIS), the newest addition to the al-Qaeda group, posted the statement in Urdu online. The group speaks out against the TTP, describing the Peshawar school massacre as “deeply saddening”.
The statement declares: “It is forbidden to target army in such places where ordinary Muslims could be harmed due to collateral damage.”
The group clearly outlines its view that the TTP made a mistake in targeting the school, writing: “Nobody amongst can be a momin (true believer) unless his desires don’t come under subservience to the Shariah that I have brought. Therefore, those people who attack innocent Muslims, they may name their acts anything but we consider such acts as UnIslamic and contradictory to Islamic Shariah.”
Such is the disgust at the attack, AQIS writes it “totally disassociates ourselves from this act. Fear Allah that your bullets which are supposed to hit the Kuffar (unbelievers) and Apostates, turn towards the non-combatant children”.
The group goes on to reaffirm its belief that the U.S. is the ultimate target, stating that “jihad against America, Oppressive-Kufr-based System and its protectors, is an obligatory Ibadah (act of worship)”.
