Pak Taliban leader Mullah Nazeer bans 'un-Islamic' cellphones with in-built cameras

Islamabad , Mon, 24 Dec 2012 ANI

Islamabad, Dec. 24 (ANI): The pro-government faction of the Pakistani Taliban led by commander Mullah Nazeer has banned mobile phones with built-in digital cameras and memory cards in Wana - a subdivision of South Waziristan tribal region which is believed to be a stronghold of the militant leader.

The announcement - made through loudspeakers from different mosques - also warned that any tribesman found in possession of such a phone would be fined Rs 15,000 and his device would be confiscated, reports The Express Tribune.

Prayer leaders and clerics in different mosques have also been asked to spread awareness amongst tribesmen in their Friday sermons about the ban.

The reason provided for this ban is that the misuse of such mobiles violates the teachings of Islam and tribal customs. The ban is also being used to justify protecting the honour and dignity of tribal women to ensure no videos of them are recorded in violation of the purdah system in the area.

In the past, the Mullah Nazeer group set ablaze several camera phones in Wana Rustam Bazaar, and warned tribesmen to avoid using these kinds of technologies. (ANI)
