ISLAMABAD - A Pakistani Taliban splinter group condemned Nobel Prize for Malala Yousafzai shortly after she was nominated for the award. "No wonder on love and sympathy of infidels for Malala as (President) Obama 'a mass murderer of Muslims' is her hero and her tireless efforts against Islam," the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan Jamaat-ul-Ahrar said.

The Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan, blamed for the 2012 attack on Malala, has not yet responded to her Nobel Prize.

"Infidels awarded Malala not for education but her conspiracies and propagandas against Islam, its principles and Mujahideen. What she had said about Hijab (Islamic veil) and Beard," Ibrahim Khorasani, member of the media wing of TTP Jamaat-ul-Ahrar said.
