KARACHI: Pakistani police yesterday arrested a suspected Islamic militant accused of training religious students to become suicide bombers, a police official said. The suspected suicide-bomb trainer, Mohamed Ashraf Qureshi, was arrested with two other men in a pre-dawn raid in the city of Karachi, said senior police official Chaudhry Aamir Hameed. Hes been targeting young boys in madrassas, brain-washing them and turning them into suicide bombers, Hameed said, referring to Islamic schools, some of which have earned reputations for being militant breeding grounds. Qureshi was involved in preparing suicide bombers for the killing of prominent Shia Muslim cleric Allama Hassan Turabi in Karachi last month, Hameed said. Police identified the suicide bomber who killed Turabi as 16-year-old Abdul Karim. The July 14 attack outside Turabis home, which also killed one of his nephews, sparked violent demonstrations in Karachi. Qureshi was also known to have visited neighbouring Afghanistan, which has been hit by a wave of suicide bombings in recent months, though it was not known if he had organised attacks there, Hameed said, adding that Qureshis interrogation was still going on.
Sounds like he has also been teaching at UCLA.
I'm always amazed that a 16 year old doesn't look back at his teacher and ask "If martyrdom is so great, and it's an immediate pass to Paradise, how come YOU haven't done it yet?"
So much for leading by example.
Strap a bomb on this guy and blow him up.
I guess this guy is living proof that those that can, do, and those that can't, teach.
Obviously, this guy has not been training his students by example...
Imanutwackjob in Iran started as a suicide trainer for the Iran/Iraq war. His job was to train the mentally ill and disabled to run accross minefields.
Then again, there has to be something
in the DNA that facilitates THIS
kind of response from a father!
Of course, they would have to be kept in a place where the blast would not cause anyone else harm. But, it should be videotaped.
Too bad there is not more mxicans in Karachi. Then we could see a Karachi Mariachi.
Where is the child's mother?????
