The Jamaat-ul-Ahrar faction of banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) announced a change in leadership after its chief Qasim Khurasani ( a Deobandi cleric) and deputy chief Omer Khalid Khurasani tendered their resignations with political Shura.

In a statement issued to media on Wednesday, Wahhabis-allied Deobandi Taliban (TTP)’s faction Jamaat-ul-Ahrar asserted that the outfit’s political Shura accepted the resignations and has appointed Commander Asad Afridi as Jamaat-ul-Ahrar’s acting Ameer (chief).
Jamaat-ul-Ahrar’s spokesperson Ehsanullah Ehsan confirmed the development, saying it was a routine matter. “According to rules and regulations, changes may be made after six months,” he said.
The faction, which parted ways with Deobandi Taliban (TTP) in August last year, had claimed responsibility for the Wagah blast in Lahore on November 2, 2014, killing at least 60 people and injuring more than 100.
Jamaat-ul-Ahrar had also claimed responsibility for an attack on a Rawalpindi Imambargah in January this year, leaving at least nine Shia Muslims martyred 16 injured.
The TTP splinter group mostly comprises Deobandis-allied Taliban insurgents operating in and around Mohmand Agency. Takfirism has brought Wahhabis-Salafists and Deobandis close and they have been allied since long.
At the time of the group’s formation, its spokesman, Ehsanullah Ehsan, had confirmed that in addition to Deobandi cleric Qasim Khurasani as its chief, the group’s political Shura includes Omer Khalid Khurasani from Mohmand Agency, Cleric Shakil Haqqani from Charsadda, Cleric Yasin from Swat, Cleric Ismail from Khyber Agency, Cleric Adbullah from Bajaur Agency, Mufti Misbah from Peshawar, Deobandi cleric Haider and Mansoor Nazim Shura from Orakzai Agency. They all declared Pakistan an infidel state with infidel army and regime and imposed war on entire Pakistan and its civilians.
