PAKISTANI CLERIC KNOWN AS ‘FATHER OF TALIBAN’ KILLED IN A KNIFE ATTACK




Mustafa AY – TDO – 05.11.2018 Maulana Sami-ul Haq, who had given the lessons of Islamic interpretation to some of highly-important members of Taliban, was stabbed to death at his home in Pakistan’s Rawalpindi. In order to enlighten Haq’s supporters, Haq’s spokesman Yousef Shah released a statement that they haven’t identified who the murderer is and for what purpose the attack was organized yet.

Sami-ul Haq was leading Pakistani Jamiat-e Ulema Islam Party in Pakistan. Haq as the founder of famous theological school of Haqqania had given Taliban’s founder ‘Molla Omar’ the lessons of Islamic interpretation. Moreover, the successor of Molla Omar –Molla Ahtar Mohammed Mansur- had received the same education from Sami-ul Haq. That’s why, Maulana Sami-ul Haq had gained the reputation as ‘Father of Taliban’ before his death.
