Baituallh Mehsud is dead
That news is neither good nor bad. The death of an “amir” is inconsequential, we have seen that in the case of Abdullah Mehsud’s death. The organization would stay, and continue attacks on Pakistan. Though Mualvi Omar is quiet since some time and isn’t taking reponsibility of any of the suicide attacks.
The world never saw Baituallh Mehsud or his picture. The group of journalist once did. And this chaddar clad man is said to be Baituallh… this photo was taken this year when he had called a special press conference. Wow! A press conference… that is why our Interior minister yells, stop glorifying terrorists.
An excerpt from Sky News article:
He is in his mid-thirties and was named by Time magazine as one of the top 100 most influential figures in the world. He’s been called more dangerous than Osama Bin Laden by Newsweek – and Musharraf and the America CIA said he was the mastermind behind Bhutto’s death.
The journalists who met him in South Waziristan, in Pakistan’s tribal belt, describe him as courteous, slightly plump, short and earnest.
According to a news report he died of renal failure.
