Taliban reject Rehman’s claim on India-Muhsud ties

Taliban on Thursday rejected a claim by Interior Ministry Chief that their chief Baitullah Mehsud has links with India.
Advisor to the Prime Minister on Interior Rehman Malik told reporters in Washington that Mehsud has connections with India.
“Ours is Jehadi organization and not the group of assassins,” Taliban spokesman Maulvi Umar said.
“As Taliban consider the United States invader in Afghanistan we also dislike Indian intervention in Pakistan,” he said.
Umar termed as malicious and baseless Malik’s statement and said such remarks are not in Pakistan’s interest.
“We can not even think to get help from aliens,” the Taliban spokesman said.
