Taliban vows to unleash jihad in Kashmir, implement Sharia
The United States had earlier announced a $5 million reward against Wali Ur Rehman for his involvement in the murder of seven Central Intelligence Agency officials in Afghanistan in December 2009.
Rehman, along with the TTP chief Hamikullah Mehsud, is believed to have said this in a rare video:
"The practical struggle for a Sharia system that we are carrying out in Pakistan, the same way we will continue it in Kashmir, and the same way we will implement the Sharia system in India too.
And this is the only solution for people's problems," said Rehman, according to the translation provided by the Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor of Middle East Media Research Institute, a Washington-based think tank.
The video in Pashtu, with Urdu subtitles, has been produced by Umar Media, the broadcasting arm of the TTP.
