A Taliban commander in Pakistan’s volatile tribal belt has broken away from the militant outfit to form his own group as he is opposed to suicide attacks on mosques and civilians.

Fazal Saeed Haqqani, a commander in the Kurram tribal region, separated from the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan and formed the Tehreek-e-Taliban Islami. Haqqani told the media that he had taken this step to protest attacks on mosques and civilians.
