Pakistan's Pres - Mr 10% - Benazir's widower - Asif Ali Zardari caved to pressure and sign off to surrender Pakistani sovereignity to mohmmedist jurisprudence and signed the Nizam-e-Adl Regulation into law today after a majority of the Pakistani Parliament passed the bill.
The regulation allows for the establishment of sharia courts in the Malakand Division, an administrative region that encompasses more than one-third of the Northwest Frontier Province and includes the districts of Malakand, Swat, Shangla, Buner, Dir, Chitral, and Kohistan.
Taliban have repeatedly violated the ceasefire in Swat. Taliban forces have attacked military convoys and captured soldiers and government officials. Most recently, on April 11, a Taliban force wounded three security personnel after ambushing a convoy in Swat.
Meanwhile, the Swat Taliban have advanced on neighboring Buner and are now in full control of the district, which is just 60 miles from the capital of Islamabad.
