Peshawar (18 March 2013). Deobandi militant belonging to banned militant outfit Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat (affiliated with the Taliban) attacked the judical complex in Peshwar. Two blasts took place near the Peshawar central jail and the judicial complex in Peshawar on Monday.
At least four people have died and the number of injured have risen to 22, including four police officers. Deobandi militants also held a number of ordinary people as hostages.
A female Judge Kulsoom Azam was hearing case when Deobandi suicide bomber blew himself up in courtroom. Judge Kulsoom Azam who was injured in the blast has been described to be in critical condition.
Deobandi militants have in the past attacked and killed female activists in various parts of Pakistan. Parveen Rehman, a leading philanthropist, was killed a few day ago in Karachi. Malala Yusufzai, a young education activist, was attacked in Swat a few months ago.
In the meanwhile, pro-establishment operatives in Pakistani media and politics continue to humanize Deobandi militants of ASWJ-Taliban arguing for dialogue with them or presenting them as prophets of peace and sectarian harmony.
International media and human rights groups continue to obfuscate Takfiri Deobandi militants of ASWJ-Taliban as Sunni Muslims hiding the fact that Deobandi militants have killed thousands of Shias as well as Sunnis, Ahmadis and Christians.
