The Taliban on Thursday denied claims that Maulana Fazlullah, architect of a brutal uprising in Swat valley, was wounded and threatened to unleash renewed holy war. Pakistan said on July 8 it had "credible" information that Fazlullah was hurt during a blistering offensive designed to crush Taliban militants who fought for two years to enforce Islamic law in the northwest Swat valley. "Taliban chief Fazlullah is alive, healthy and has never been wounded," the spokesman, Muslim Khan, told a foreign news agency by telephone from an undisclosed location. "All of the Taliban leadership in Swat are alive and are in hiding with a strategy. We will continue our jihad until the enforcement of Islamic sharia," the Taliban spokesman told the news agency on Thursday.
