Fazlullahs Imam Dheri Headquarter blown up.

SWAT, 09 June, 2009 (Frontier Star) -- The security forces have destroyed Maulana Fazlullahs head quarter in Imam Dheri. According to sources, the security forces planted IDEs at the Head Quarter and cleared the area before blowing up the headquarter. According to information, the mosque and residences in the headquarter were also destroyed. The security forces took control of the headquarter in 2007 but later handed over the control to banned TNSM Chief Maulana Sufi Muhammad after imposition of Nizam-e-Adl Regulations (NAR). It is noted that the Imam Dheri headquarter which was constructed near River Swat was the center of all military activities of Fazlullah and used to collect funds. The Headquarter in Imam Dheri was constructed in 2004 with the total amount of over Rs. 10 million with donations of people. Meanwhile Security forces have also taken into custody the Nazim of banned Tehrik-Nifaz Shariat Mohammadi Swat Iqbal Kahn. He was taken into custody from the area of Hayat Abad when he was coming out of the mosque after performing prayers. He is said to be a close associate of Fazlullah. It is also worth mentioning that when TNSM leader Mohammad Alam and Izzat Khan were taken into custody before being killed Iqbal Khan had managed to escape.
