PESHAWAR: Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl chief Fazlur Rehman has cast doubt on the Taliban shooting of child activist Malala Yousufzai, saying he did not believe she was hit in the head.

The teenager narrowly escaped with her life when Taliban shot her on her school bus last month for daring to campaign for the right of girls to go to school. Doctors in Britain, where she is now recovering, say the bullet from the attack grazed her brain and travelled through her head and neck before lodging in her left shoulder.

But the pro-Taliban cleric Fazl dismissed the medical assessment. "Pictures shown on social media have shown the whole character as suspicious because there was no sign of injury after the dressing was removed," he told a rally in northwest Pakistan on Sunday.

"It shows that the bullet did not hit her in the head."

Images released by the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham showed Malala with much of her head covered with a blue towel. The cold-blooded attempt to murder the youngster shocked the world, but many in Pakistan believe the incident was part of a plot to defame the Taliban and Islam.

Malala attack

Rehman Malik speaks out minutes after any incident and gives his verdict as if the culprits had told him before committing crime. The subsequent clarifications and announcements to name the culprit and rewards for the informers negate those claims thus the trust in government becmes a casualty. Maulana fazlur rehman has acted very irresponsibly during whole episode. He made so many somersaults that now trusting him with any statement will be naive. But our memories are short and unfortunately we get fooled by these politicians again and again.

Malala shooting

On October 10, 2012 I wrote: "There are Taliban factions sponsored by the CIA and this bullet was from such a faction. The shooting was a psy-op (psychological operation) to facilitate a U.S. invasion of Pakistani territory which is a prelude to an occupation of and overt colonial rule over the subcontinent as a whole."

Doubts: The act of Iblees..!
This so-called Maulana must be reminded that doubts based on speculations are not permitted in Islam. He was not on the spot and he has not seen the pain and injury of the little angel but is trying to please his bomb brothers by making such wild and stupid speculations.
