Islamabad: The Pakistani Taliban have outlined conditions for a ceasefire, including the adoption of Islamic law, a spokesman said on Thursday.
The Taliban, in a letter printed by the Pakistan daily The News, also demanded that Pakistan stop its involvement in the war pitting Afghan insurgents against the Kabul government and refocus on a war of “revenge” against India. The militants accused Pakistan’s army of acting as “mercenaries” for America.
The conditions, confirmed by spokesman Ihsanullah Ihsan in a phone call to Reuters, also said Pakistan should rewrite its laws and constitution according to Islamic law.
