|TTP Punjab warns PTI march participants of 'painful consequences'|
06 October 2012
The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan’s (TTP) Punjab faction has said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf “peace march” is forcing them to take “strict actions”, a statement issued by the militant faction said on Saturday.
The TTP Punjab warned the participants to not endorse his “peace march” and said that they will face “painful consequences” if they do so.
The statement said:
Their only motive to come to Waziristan is to mislead the simple people of the tribal region.
The statement further said that the journalists “following the Jews” and endorsing Khan’s rally were “out of the pale of Islam”.
The militant outfit said that the PTI had not only “ignored the values of Islam, but also forgotten its norms.”
PTI’s “peace march” left from the limits of Islamabad and proceeded towards South Waziristan, today.
The motorcade will drive across Talagang, Chakwal, Kundian, Mianwali, Karak, Dera Ismail Khan and finally enter Waziristan.
