A close assisstant of Tehreek e Taliban Pakistan, Ustadul Mujahideen ( The trainer of Mujahideen), famous punjabi taliban commander Qari Yasen (nick Ustad Aslam) embraced martyrdom along with his three companions in an American drone attack in the area of Laman near Pak-Afghan boundary on 19 Jumadi al-Akhir 1438 (March 19, 2017).
The respected Ustad was one of the closest companions of Shaheed Amjad Farooqi who was a famous personality of Pakistan Jihad -May Allah have mercy upon them both-.
He was considered as one of the greatest trainers of explosives and electronics in the fields of Jihad and still his students are performing their duties in the field of Jihad relating to such sectors of Jihad.
Other than this he participated enthusiastically in the various jihadi operations in Pakistan. Among those, the attack at GHQ is counted on top and he was considered as the master mind of that plan and attack.
We TTP, send our deep condolence to the survivors and companions of respected Ustad on his martyrdom. May ALLAH grant patience to the survivors.
It is not a sorrowful saying because the respected ustad himself arrived in this field for the wish of being martyred and finally he embraced that and went to meet the shuhada by remaining on the path of success.
We believe him to be so, and Allah is his witness.
