The Stance Of Al-Qaeda In Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) Over Peshawar Army School Attack
05 January 2015
By Al-Ikhwah Al-Mujahidun
Al-Qaeda in Indian Subcontinent (AQIS) released a
statement regarding an attack that has occurred on a
school in the city of Peshawar in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa
province of Pakistan last week. Information from the
area suggests that so far some 200 people have been
killed and wounded in the incident most of whom are
said to be children.
In this statement, AQIS condemned the killing of
children and innocent people. AQIS also expresses its
condolences over the incident. This is the English
translation of official statement by AQIS:
Our hearts are in grief over the
killing of innocent children
Introduction: We received the news of Peshawar attack
through media that more than 130 children died in the
attack. From the reports of the media, the target of
the attackers was the school and the children in the
school meaning that any army camp or base was not the
target of the attack where the possibility of hitting
civilians is the least. So, this school was the school
of children in which Pakistan army soldiers were not
receiving military training rather ordinary children
were studying who were non-combatants. Since we do not
have any independent and trusted source to verify the
actual reality behind the news, we will give the
stance of our Jama'ah on the news received from media.
And we are making 2 important assumptions.
1) The basic intention of the attack was to kill
2) Most of those killed in the attack were indeed
All praise be to the Lord of the Worlds and peace and
blessings be upon the Imam of Mujahidin; Muhammad (Shalallahu
alaihi wa sallam), his progeny and companions.
In Peshawar army school attack, more than 130 children
have died. "And to him we belong and to him we
return". On this tragic incident, our hearts are
deeply saddened. There is no doubt about the
oppression of Pakistan army and that its crimes have
exceeded all limits. Truth is that, Pakistan army has
exceeded all limits in its subservience to Americans
and the massacre of Muslims. It's also true that,
America is totally dependent on Pakistan's army to
silence any voice for Shariah.
But these crimes of Pakistan army and its horrific
oppression CANNOT justify that its revenge be taken
from innocent Muslims. It doesn't mean that the arms
that we have taken against the puppets of Amerrica ;
the Pakistani rulers and their subservient army be
turned towards the Muslim people… Helping whom and
freeing whom from the oppression of Pakistan army and
traitor rulers, is our basic aim.
It is our basic aim to protect the Deen and Dunya(life)
of the Muslims and to provide for them the Justice,
peace and tranquility of Islamic Shariah. We equally
sympathize with our people on this incident. We
eulogize for these deaths but we also want to say
To our beloved Pakistan Muslims.
1) Your pain is our pain and your blood is our blood.
To defend you is our responsibility and we have not
left our homes just so that the oppression upon you
may be increases but by Allah, the purpose of Jihad of
Mujahidin of Al-Qaeda is to stop the oppressors and to
relieve the pain of the oppressed.
2) The aims of Mujahdin of Al-Qaeda are WELL KNOWN and
OBVIOUS. Which are:
>To defend Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan from behind.
>To provide safe heavens and logistics for them.
>To implement Shariah in Pakistan.
For this purpose, Mujahidin select their targets with
extreme care which are:
>Direct American Targets (their bases, intelligence
>Puppet rulers who sustain the Kufr based system.
>The mercenaries of America (Pakistani security forces
3) We Mujahidin only select our targets in the light
of Verdicts of religious scholars. We believe that
Jihad in the way of Allah and particularly operating
in Muslim lands against traitor rulers and army is a
very delicate matter which can only be done under the
guidance of the scholars of Islam.
4) We, the Mujahidin of Al-Qaeda condemn any targeting
of Public places, women or children from the start of
Pakistani Jihad till this day. And we totally oppose
this methodology. In this regards, the statements of
leaders of Al-Qaeda like Shaikh Attiya tullah Al Libi
(rahimahullah), Shaikh Abu Yahya al Libi (rahimahullah),
Shaikh Mustafa Abu alYazid (rahimahullah) and the
current leader Maulana Asim Umar (hafidhahullah),
Ustad Ahmad Faruq (hafidhahullah) and of others are
WELL KNOWN. All of them have categorically forbidden
the blasts targeting Pakistan's criminal army and even
"It is forbidden to target army in such places where
ordinary Muslims could be harmed due to collateral
5) Islam teaches total subservience to the teachings
of Shariah. Even if a Muslim may face ANY ammount of
oppression, it is still not allowed for him to
transgress the boundaries of Shariah. The Imam of
Mujahidin and the last messenger Rasulullah(sa) said
"No body amongst can be a mu'min (true believer)
unless his desires don't come under subservience to
the Shariah that I have brought".
Therefore, those people who attack innocent Muslims,
they may name their acts anything but we consider such
acts as UnIslamic and contradictory to Islamic Shariah.
We TOTALLY DISASSOCIATE ourselves from this act.
6) Al those people, who are responsible for this act,
we request them that if you are fighting for the
supremacy of the religion of Allah and if you are
fighting to avenge the oppression of kuffar then
please take the revenge from the actual culprits. Fear
Allah that your bullets which are supposed to hit the
Kuffar and Apostates, turn towards the non-combatant
Children. Obey Shariah in ALL conditions and always
take actions based on the guidance of Scholars and the
pioneers of Jihad.
7) Jihad against America, Oppressive-Kufr-based System
and its protectors is an obligatory Ibadah. Just like
Salah, Fasting, this Ibadah of Jihad is also an
individual obligation according to Scholars. To stand
up for Islamic Shariah and doing Jihad against puppets
of America is the call of the book of Allah.
8) No matter how much people try to malign the
obligation of Jihad, its obligation is not ceases. Its
convoy keeps on moving and temporary difficulties,
maligning (etc) will never be able to cease or harm
Jihad. In shaa Allah.
9) We are in any case responsible to do Jihad–
ACCORDING TO SHARIAH– for the sake of Allah's word and
we think that today it's even more critical and
necessary that our Jihad totally conforms to the
boundaries and guidelines of Islamic Shariah.
Alhamdulillah, in Pakistan, there is no shortage of
such mujahidin who distinguish between Jihadi actions
against legitimate targets and the actions against
innocents. These Mujahidin are sacrificing their lives
to protect the oppressed people of Pakistan and to
enforce Islamic Shariah and these Mujahidin believe
that it is an obligation to do Jihad which conforms to
the principles of Shariah.
10) So our beloved people of Pakistan, the Mujahidin
are your well wishers. Americans, Indians or the
traitor rulers and army of Pakistan are NOT your
Those Mujahidin who are doing Jihad for the Supermacy
of Islamic Shariah and for the protection of your Deen
and Dunya are your genuine well-wishers. In shaa
Allah, the night of oppression will soon end and the
convoy of Jihad will meet its goals and we will see
the day when the goals of Islamic Shariah such as:
>Protection of Deen.
>Protection of Life.
>Protection of Wealth.
>Protection of Nasl(Progeny).
>Protection of Aql.
are met and Muslims of Pakistan live their lives
according to Islamic System.
We tell the world of Kufr that globally the
responsibility of :
> Killing of thousands of Muslim people in
bombardments, drone attacks and land occupation.
> The killing of numerous innocent women, children and
> The barbaric torture and oppression
lies chiefly on United states. United states is
responsible for the oppression of Muslims in Ghaza,
Somalia, Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq, Yemen, etc.
And today, it wants to shed crocodile tears. And
today, the butcher of Indian Muslims in Ahmadabad and
Gujrat ; Nairandar Modi also wants to sympathize with
Today the butcher of more than 900 Muslims in Lal
Masjid and killers of many innocent people ; The
Pakistan army, its Chief Raheel and slave of America ;
Nawaz Sharif are trying to sympathize with Children
We also want to address the traitor Pakistani
government and the Puppet army on this occassion.
"Muslims of Pakistan have seen your oppression and
Kufr. This nation cannot forgive your spilling of
innocent blood from Balochistan and tribal areas to
Karachi and Peshawar. Your enemity to Islam, Kufr and
subservience to Kufr powers has become apparent. Every
heart is grieved on peshawar incident but it NEVER
> your system is not based on kufr.
> that you are not the slaves of Americans.
> that you are champions of peace!
What do you want to give to the people of Pakistan
Anger of Allah and slavery of America?
How come you are saying such statements… World can see
the blood dripping from your jaws from each and every
of your statement… In the ongoing operation in North
Waziristan, you have martyred countless children and
women of the tribal people and Mujahidin WITH the help
of American drones. You are the ones who lighted the
flames of this was. Your are the ones who spilled the
blood of Muslims in Pakistan and Afghanistan. You and
your American masters are our real enemy.
Your war now is with the Mujahidin whose hearts are
firm upon the principles of Islamic Shariah. Even in
the saddest of times, the Mujahidin have their sights
firmly on their aim, they are waiting to ambush you
and Inshallah they will strike you soon. May Allah
make them succeed and give this Ummah freedom from the
We appeal to our beloved Pakistani Muslims that the
children and women of Tribal Muslims, Mujahidin and
Muslims are daily targeted by Pakistan forces. Just
like the innocents of Peshawar, those children are
also innocent and they also deserve sympathy. The
children killed in drone attacks are also Muslims and
innocents. Their bodies are torn apart into pieces
daily by American and Pakistani bombs. Their eyes are
also eager for your Sympathies.
Please not only remember the children of Peshawar in
your Dua but also the children of Waziristan and
please curse also their killers. Help the Mujahidin
fighting against the oppression of Americans and their
allies. May Allah help you and May Allah relive the
oppression from you and give you a chance to see the
peace of Shariah.
"And Allah is dominant over his affair but most people
We end with the praise for the sustainer of the Worlds
and the peace and blessings upon the Messenger of of
