Maulanda Fazlullah, Video, January 2015

Defending the Peshawar school massacre: “We attacked the school as it was the army’s camp area and their training centre. If it was not an army camp then what were a brigadier and his soldiers doing there? We are at war with the army - if they kill us and our people… in fake encounters we will also kill them. Our men attacked the school and killed children of army personnel - not civilians. They asked about their identity before killing them. These people will always be our target and we will kill them in the streets, markets, everywhere. If the army knows our situation - then we also know theirs. Army camps everywhere are our targets.” (Video)Chris Hughes, “Pakistan Taliban warlord behind Peshawar school massacre vows MORE children will be slaughtered,” Mirror (London), January 5, 2015, http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/pakistan-taliban-warlord-behind-peshawar-4923148.

“When I die, the angels will ask me about my actions. Will this government save me? No! I must act for myself and for my own salvation.

Are you prepared to make the sacrifices?” (Radio sermon)Nicholas Schmidle, “The Ambitions of the Pakistan Taliban’s New Chief,” New Yorker, November 11, 2014, http://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/the-ambitions-of-the-pakistani-talibans-new-chiefhttp://www.newyorker.com/news/news-desk/the-ambitions-of-the-pakistani-talibans-new-chief.
