ISLAMABAD, Oct 11 : A breakaway faction of Pakistan Taliban, whose militants had pumped bullets into her two years ago, has criticised the choice of Malala Yousafzai for the 2014 Nobel Peace prize, calling her "an agent of non-believers".
Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, which had separated from Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in August, posted on microblogging website Twitter last night that Malala was being used by non-believers for propaganda. "Malala speaks so much against guns and armed conflicts. Does she not know that founder of her recent Nobel award was the inventor of explosives," tweeted militant outfit spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan. ?PTI
