The banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has warned people in Miramshah to refrain from playing loud music, administering polio drops and women going out without being accompanied by a man, as per reports. The outfit has threatened that the violators of the directives will face consequences.
The TTP reportedly released a one-page message in Urdu in Miramshah on Wednesday, as per reports. The group warned that such instructions have been defied in the past, but this time it was not going to be tolerated.
The organisation warned of consequences to those who violated the rule about loud music. As per the directive, no one should play loud music at their homes or in the open. They also prohibited the practice of employing DJs (Disk Jockeys). The TTP disallowed the practice playing of loud music on computers and shops and even threatened that any place that was heard doing so, could be blown up.
The message further stated that the officials working for polio vaccination could proceed with finger-marking, but they should not administer polio drops.
The TTP also instructed that women going out alone is ‘harmful’ to the society, so she should be accompanied by a man. The unit also claimed that people should not be under the misconception that they could get away with defying the orders since there is one informer of the Mujahideen in every three people.
Meanwhile, as far as the Afghan Taliban is concerned, Afghanistan President Ashraf Ghani asserted that he was the first to offer talks on peace with the Taliban over the hurdles created over the previous regimes.
He was quoted as stating, “For the first time, I announced the unconditional offer of peace talks to the Taliban. For the unprecedented reason, I said that the previous government had imposed 11 conditions for negotiating with the Taliban, which was the main obstacle to the start of the peace process. But I got rid of these obstacles.”
