The Taliban Pakistan deny the oath of allegiance to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the leader of the terrorist group «Islamic state», which, according to them, did not enjoy the support of Muslims and is headed by only a small group of radicals that have an impact only in countries such as Egypt, Yemen, Libya and Afghanistan.
About it writes on Sunday, December 20, news Agency Dawn.
The Taliban said their goal is to overthrow the government and create a Shariah state, but also condemned al-Baghdadi for the killing of innocent citizens.
The website NEWSru.com recalls that part of the Taliban led by Mullah Rauf Chadema cooperates, however, with the head of ISIS in Afghanistan Hafiz Saeed. Recently in clashes between the Taliban supporting ISIS, and their opponents in Zabul province was killed Mullah Mansur Dadullah, a supporter of the IG.
In late October former President of Pakistan Pervez Musharraf made a statement that in 1990-e years, Islamabad has supported the Taliban and other terrorist groups, and thought leaders of al-Qaeda heroes.
