The Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP) have threatened Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan against a planned march to Waziristan to protest US drone attacks. Talking to the Associated Press on Monday in South Waziristan, a Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan spokesperson Ahsanullah Ahsan had said they would attack Khan because he calls himself a ‘liberal’, a term usually reserved by them for a person lacking religious belief. The threat comes as a surprise since not only Khan and TTP share their opposition to drone strikes in the region, but the former, one would argue, has demonstrated his religiosity publicly, praying in front of the crowd at his rallies. Ahsan reiterated in the interview that the TTP did not want Khan’s help in opposing drone attacks. “We will not accept help or sympathy from any infidel,” said Ahsan, referring to Khan. “We can fight on our own with the help of God,” he said, as, ironically, drones flew overhead.
