    MIRAMSHAH: Irked by hoisting of national flag by tribesmen in Miramshah and Mirali as a proof of their allegiance to the state in order to escape bombings, the banned militant group Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan has said that it is responding by hoisting black flags.

    People in Miramshah, the headquarters of North Waziristan, said on Friday that sale of the national flag had increased as more and more people in the town, adjoining villages and Mirali wanted to hoist it to demonstrate their allegiance to the state and escape bombing.

    “The sale of Pakistani flag has increased and we also have hoisted one on our rooftop,” a resident said. “Big flags on high masts can be seen everywhere,” he said.

    But the move has irked the militant group which criticised what it called “weak-hearted Muslims” for using flags as a “defence” to ward off bombing and vowed to counter it with black flags with the Kalma inscribed on it, terming it a “battle of the flags”.

    In a message posted on a militant website, IMU’s Abu Ibrahim said local tribesmen frightened by army attacks and bombings by military planes and helicopters and artillery had begun hoisting the national flag on roofs of their houses.

    “We still have not understood how effective this ‘defence system’ is against bombs and rockets,” he said.

    The IMU, comprising militants from Uzbekistan and of Turkic origin, has its main base in the town of Mirali.

    It has released statements and videos on the aftermath of military action in the town’s main bazaar and nearby areas.

    The action prompted local tribal people to leave for other places, while others who could not do so started hoisting Pakistani flag to ward off air strikes.

    He even took a swipe at a “commander of the local people in Taliban clothing” for suggesting to the IMU to remove the black flags from the market.

    Just like the mainstream has now rejected the Talibans and their medieval agenda, the locals in FATA have now realised these scum are no benefit for Muslims.....the tide has turned.

    It's good, by hoisting the black flags, these idiots are actually revealing their positions. Boom. :D

    But they are uzbeks of IMU who are not happy with pakistani flags, they are not part but allies of TTP and haqqani network. They are from uzbekistan and have different values. Local taliban have nothing against pakistani flags. Pakistani flags on houses in FATA and KPK is a "normal" thing, a kind of trend and fashion. It is balochistan, where insurgents have problems with the pakistan flag.
    And this news article reminds me of 2001 when Afghan villages on border hoisted pakistani flags to escape american bombardments.

    All the criminals in Eurasia gather in Pakistan to make money. They think by putting black flags with kalma can fool others.

    Who ever they might be, they are on Pakistani soil hence only one kind of flag flies high and showing one's patriotism is no fashion but pride.

    You brain is so tiny that you dont care about details?. Nationals of uzbekistan are not happy with hoisting of pakistani flags and you are talking non-sense that tribals have finally realized their mistake.

    foreign Terrorists are pissed off over the show of allegiance of tribesmen to Pakistani state

    this news is a big slap on the face of chronic army haters like Hamid Mir and Najan Sathi etc. also the nawaz league goons will see it allegiance to Pakistan army.
    @Pak-one this is an in your face kind of a story istnt it? despite the false propaganda of Pashton genocide the tribesmen have stood with the truth.


    @Windjammer @Abu Zolfiqar before we celebrate we will have to watch out the doctors pictures used as a false propaganda against the Pak army where US drone stikes, Iraqi and Afghan footage has been used against Pakistan army claiming the victims were from FATA and the attackers were PAF and Pakistan military.

    I wont be surprised if this Uzbekistan terrorists attack the tribesmen themselves and then use the same footage of the devastation as the result of PAF bombing. in the past TTP has not shied away from attacking Friday prayers, mosques, tombs, shrines and tribal gatherings,. the Punjabi taliban are the bost resourceful because of the backing of Nawaz league and direct link to Saudi donors and they are the ones who upload all the graphic and pro terrorist content on the net. I recall an instance where a chronic liar and Taliban supporter used Falujah victims pictures for Lal masjid operations and claimed that these victims were burned by SSG phosphorus bombing... and the gullible and dimwit people eagerly ate his shit and when I challenged him with posting the original pictures he backed off saying the reason to post those pictures was to show them as an "example" how SSG infidels killed innocent Lal Masjid students.. I ridiculed him and cursed him for misleading and lying but no body checked later posts and his doctored Photoshoped pictures had gone viral.

    @Icarus our enemy is not only vicious but a chronic liar and manipulative and feeds our conspiracy hungry public what it thinks, what doesnt help is having minsters like, Abid Sher Ali, Kh Asif, Saad Rafique and Pervaiz Rashid who have their own axes to grind against our armed forces and in the process hurt their own government by hurting state of Pakistan.

    clearly the tribesmen have shown who's side they are.
    my problem is with these over weight, middle class Ipod , I pad jihadists who not only eat shit themselves but add their own flavor and distribute the shit around praising and justifying TTP and showing them as some noble mojhaideen

    You absolutely nailed it. These people will do and say anything and still feel like they are superior Muslims. Nothing is beneath them, which makes them all the more dangerous enemies.

    It brings to mind their well known tactic of booby-trapping dead bodies, so that grieving relatives who come to collect them will also be torn to shreds.

    OT they certainly seem to be losing the PR battle since the mainstream started focusing on them more closely. Unfortunately, we Muslims - south Asians especially - don't like to deal with things until they are at our own door. Attacking the Armed forces was the turning point i think for Pak Muslims.

    And you are such a dimwit that you can't comprehend the fact that these Uzbek dogs are not in Afghanistan or some other Banana Republic where they can issue their nonsense and the fact that the Tribals are giving these idiots a two finger salute proves where their loyalties lie and it's indeed a smack in the mouth of those who thought otherwise.

    booby trapping bodies and also Holy Quran as well. this takfiri filth will go to any depths to further its cause and in the end these claim to do everything in the name of Islam. I am sure their claims are repulsive to the God.
