“We consider them [Lal Masjid] a part of us before, during and after the [siege]… their shaheed [martyrs] are our shaheed... their prisoners are our prisoners.... every member of the Harakat [i.e. IMU] will stand up against the terrorist act that took place on Lal Masjid. ... After Iraq and Afghanistan, Pakistan ranks 3rd in the [jihadi operations] launched on its territory. We will always be a part of these activities.”Qandeel Siddique, “The Red Mosque Operation and Its Impact on the Growth of the Pakistani Taliban,” Norwegian Defence Research Establishment (FFI), October 8, 2008, https://www.ffi.no/no/Rapporter/08-01915.pdf.
