Who was Amjad Farooqi?

In whose name Pakistan GHQ has been raided

A news agency report says as follows:

"The Tehreek-e-Taliban has claimed responsibility for the brazen attack on the Pakistan Army's  Headquarters in Rawalpindi on Saturday, which left four of its militants and eight soldiers dead. The outfit has again demanded a halt in the ongoing military campaign in the NWFP. The Amjad Farooqi group of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) umbrella grouping claimed that it was behind the audacious attack and demanded that former President Pervez Musharraf  be put on trial. The group took the responsibility in a telephone call made to Geo News. They also asked for closure of all Western NGOs and expulsion of US private security firm Blackwater."
