TTP announces it won't attack Pervez Musharraf
KARACHI: Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has said that it would not attack General (R) Pervez Musharraf, for it is into an agreement of one month's ceasefire with the Government of Pakistan and violating the agreement is something the organization considers against the Shariah – ARY News reports.
In a statement issued by TTP Mohmand Agency official, Umer Khurasani, it was mentioned that the outfit will abide by the ceasefire and it considers violating the agreement against the Islamic teachings.
He stated that the Ministry of Interior issued a security alert to the former President Pervez Musharraf yesterday and named Taliban to be planning an assault on him, which is an allegation having no factual basis.
Umer Khurasani said that his organization is not at all trying to target anyone including Musharraf until the ceasefire does not end and the major jihadist organizations active in Pakistan are also supporting us in this regard.
The TTP official urged the authorities to refrain from using the name of TTP or any other organization, in pursuance of their own political goals, for this can affect the peace process.
