Taliban decide to ‘deal with’ MQM’s ‘suppression’: Pakistan on the brink of Civil War

Express Tribune: LADDAH: The outlawed Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan has decided to `deal’ with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement and rid the people of Karachi of its `suppression’.

TTP spokesman Ihsanullah Ihsan called reporters and read out a statement on Friday, saying the Taliban had decided to rid the people of Karachi of the suppression of MQM. “We would show no leniency to the MQM who have repressed the people of Karachi”.

He said the Taliban had started consultations to work out a strategy for the coming general election. “Taliban would announce the policy after the official announcement of the general election,” he said, adding that contesting political parties would be divided into three categories.

“Taliban urge all the nationalist parties in Sindh and Balochistan, including the Sindh Liberation Army and the Baloch Liberation Army, to continue their struggle against the unjust system according to the teachings of Islam and we would support their struggle,” he said.
