PESHAWAR (Web Desk)- Anti-terrorism court has indicted the head of banned Tehreek-e-Nifaz-e-Shariah Mohammadi Maulana Sufi Mohammad under charges of treason against state.
The case was perused against the speech made by him in which he had termed Pakistani government to be un-Islamic during 2009 that had resulted in cancellation of peace treaty with government.
The hearing of the case was held in Peshawar’s Central Jail. During the hearing, the court charged the TNSM chief for treason over his speech against democracy and state at Grassy Ground in Swat, where he had termed democracy and the then-government as un-Islamic and unconstitutional.
Sufi Mohammad is the father-in-law of outlawed Tehreek-i-Taliban chief Mullah Fazlullah. Last year in November, an ATC in Peshawar had acquitted Sufi Mohammad and around 30 of his associates in two terrorism cases.
However, he continued to be behind bars for facing two more cases, one of which is the sedition case in which he was indicted.
