ISLAMABAD, April 8 (Xinhua) -- A teenager, who was part of the deadly suicide bombing in a shrine which killed 50 people and injured 100 others in Pakistan's Punjab province this week, said Friday that 300 more boys have been trained for attacks.

Omar Fidai, 15, was injured after his another complice struck the Sufi shrine in Dera Ghazi Khan District on April 4, according to Pakistani TV channels, that he was trained in the Mir Ali tribal area along with other 300 suicide bombers.

"I tender my apology to the families of those whose relatives have been killed. The children who are ready for suicide attacks in the training center should refuse to target Muslims as Islam does not allow it," Fidai said on his hospital bed.

"My message to the bombers in the Taliban training center is to leave the training center as they are not prepared for martyrdom attacks but suicide attacks which are forbidden in Islam," he said.

He said the teachers used to tell the trainees in a training center in the North Waziristan tribal area that they would be sent to Afghanistan for suicide attacks.

Fidai said that he was contacted by one Taliban leader -- Qari Zafar -- after he came out of school in North Waziristan. Zafar told him that he should become suicide bomber as he would go to paradise after he carries out attack.

He said that Mulla Sangin from Afghanistan, who is associated with Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan, is in charge of the training center.
