Taliban in Pakistan threatens prominent politicians, including the prime minister
The main ruling parties in the nation have been warned by the armed organisation Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) that "concrete action" will be taken against its top officials if they continue to "declare war" against them.
TTP, sometimes referred to as Pakistani Taliban due to its ideological ties to the Taliban in neighboring Afghanistan, made a statement on Wednesday that specifically mentioned Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari.
The most recent TTP statement specifically mentions Shehbaz Sharif, the prime minister, and Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, the foreign minister.
The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N), led by Sharif, is one of the major coalition partners in the government, along with Bhutto Zardari's Pakistan People's Party (PPP).
According to a statement sent via WhatsApp by TTP spokesman Muhammad Khorasani, "TTP has not taken any action against political groups for a long time."
"But if these two parties stick to their stance, action will be taken against their leaders," the statement continued. People should stay away from them," it advised.
The statement continued, "[Our] objective is Pakistan's security forces who are operating against the interests of the nation at the behest of the West."
The TTP statement also included a warning for Pakistan's political parties that are founded on religion, pleading with them not to take part in actions against the organisation.
The statement read, "The TTP policy does not entail attacking your parties, but we do ask that you refrain from taking part in any activities against us."
The National Security Committee (NSC), Pakistan's top security authority, declared "zero tolerance for terrorism" in the country and "reaffirmed its intention to take on any and all entities that resort to violence" two days before to the TTP threat.
On December 30 and January 2, the NSC, which is made up of Sharif and the recently appointed military leader General Asim Munir, met for two days to discuss Pakistan's security situation.
