Taliban has threatened to kill Pakistan PM Shehbaz Sharif and other top leaders

Islamabad: A war-like situation has arisen between the Pakistan Army and Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP). Now, the TTP – also known as the Pakistan Taliban – has threatened to kill top leaders of the PML-N and the PPP, which form the ruling coalition in the country.

The warning by the TTP came after the Afghan Taliban threatened the Pakistani military with a re-run in 1971 in case of an attack on Afghanistan.

Recently, Pakistan’s Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah has announced that if Taliban does not eliminate TTP terrorists, Pakistan’s army will enter Afghanistan and attack TTP positions.

While the Taliban rulers of Afghanistan are infuriated by this statement of Pakistan, the terrorists of TTP, now living in their shelter, have openly threatened to attack the leaders of both the ruling parties of Pakistan, PML-N and PPP.

“For long, TTP has not taken any action against political parties. But if both these parties stick to their stand then action will be taken against the leaders of these parties. People should avoid going near them.

“(Our) target is Pakistan’s security forces who are acting against the interests of the country at the behest of the West,” he said.

Making a big change in its strategy, TTP has issued a statement saying that PPP and Nawaz Sharif’s PML have declared war against America to please it.

“Unfortunately, it is not clear how the current government fell under the spell of the United States,” the TTP statement said.

The TTP, which has launched deadly attacks on the Pakistani army from its bases in Afghanistan, has warned political parties to stay away from its fight against the security forces.

The Pakistan Taliban has also appealed to religious groups to refrain from supporting the Pakistan Army in its fight against the TTP.

TTP’s policy does not include targeting your parties, but we request you to refrain from being a part of any activity against us.

Earlier, TTP had carried out a suicide attack in Islamabad after a gap of 9 years.

Meanwhile, the Tehrik-e-Taliban has issued fresh instructions preventing its members and other key militants from meeting with its supreme commander Noor Wali Mehsud. The TTP fears that Noor Wali may be targeted by the Pakistan Army and the ISI.
