Taliban warn media

RAWALPINDI: The Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has warned the media to stop working against it or face its wrath.

A spokesman for the banned outfit, Azam Tariq, while talking to a British-based broadcasting corporation said that the media could only then be called as independent when it projects the Taliban’s viewpoint, along with the government version. He said any media that projected the government viewpoint only and ignored the TTP would prove that it was also part of the US propaganda and would, therefore, be on its hit list. The spokesman said he expected the media to understand that it should be free.
