Punjabi Taliban warn Imran Khan for severe consequences

Saturday, October 6th, 2012 2:59:42 by

As the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) really begins its journey towards South Waziristan, the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan’s (TTP) Punjab faction has said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf peace-rally is forcing them to take strict actions.

A statement issued by the TTP Punjab warned the participants of the peace-march to not endorse the rally, adding that they will have to face painful consequences if they do so.

According to the statement, the PTI’s only motive to come to Waziristan is to mislead the simple people of the tribal region.

It further stated that the journalists following the Jews and endorsing Khan’s rally were out of the pale of Islam.

A pamphlet against the peace rally of Imran Khan has been allegedly distributed by a group named Punjabi Taliban in Dera Ismail Khan (DIK).

The statement said, “The PTI had not only “ignored the values of Islam, but also forgotten its norms.”

The pamphlet termed Imran Khan as an agent of the United States, Britain and Israel and alleged that he is politicizing the issue and has no sympathy for the poor tribesmen.

Requesting the people not to participate in this rally, the statement said otherwise Imran Khan would be held responsible if something unpleasant happens.

The cricketer-turned-politician, Imran Khan, is leading a peace-rally from Islamabad to South Waziristan to protest against US drone strikes.

The motorcade will drive across Talagang, Chakwal, Kundian, Mianwali, Karak, Dera Ismail Khan and finally enter Waziristan.

However, the local as well as the provincial administration denied permission citing security reasons.

According to the reports, the district administration in Tank has set up containers at routes leading to South Waziristan and will not allow the PTI march to proceed any further.

The administration has also said that any foreigners who do not have permission letters for entering Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa will not be allowed to enter the province.

Emergency was imposed in Tank and police holidays were recalled for dealing with the march.

    I honestly want to understand. Why would the Taliban have a problem with a rally to call for the end of drone strikes? How is that a Zionist mission? How could bringing together Americans and Pakistanis against this horror be a bad thing? I very much want the strikes to end and I am aware of and fight the Zionist agenda everyday, but I find this perplexing.

    i think they should end by the U.S. droping nukes on all of the muslim world
