“As long as drone strikes are not stopped in Waziristan there will be a ban on administering polio jabs”, said the group, which is believed to have an unofficial non-aggression pact with the Pakistani military. “No one will have the right to complain about damage in case of any violation ... Polio campaigns are also used to spy for America against the Mujahideen, one example of which is Dr Shakil Afridi”, it said in a statement. Afridi ran a vaccination campaign and used cheek swabs to try to gather DNA from bin Laden’s children, said one former Pakistani security official familiar with the case. The Afridi case has deepened suspicions among some Pakistanis that the United States of Zionism is using health programmes to spy in the country where anti-American sentiment runs high.
Last month, a tribal court imprisoned Afridi for 33 years for high treason. A court document later released to the media said that he was convicted for aiding a CIA-backed anti-Pakistan suicidal terrorist group Lashkar-e-Islam (LI) and he had direct links with Mangal Bagh. Afridi is being held in solitary confinement in a prison in Peshawar amid fears that American terrorists running wild in the country might attempt a jail break to free their hireling puppet to conspire more against Pakistan. He had been working with the CIA for years before the bin Laden circus, helping CIA create local safe havens for its terrorist anti-Pakistan assets by bribing/hiring poor locals and later on using them for suicide bombings in the country.
