Pakistani Taliban threaten to target MQM

PESHAWAR: The Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) on Friday threatened to target the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), vowing to ‘deal’ with the largest political party in Karachi, a spokesman for the banned extremist militant organisation said Friday.

Pakistani Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan, in a statement issued Friday, said that they had decided to the MQM, vowing "not to show any mercy to the apostate tyrants of Karachi".

MQM chief Altaf Hussain has been a vocal critic of peace talks with militants and his party has taken a visible anti-Taliban stance in the wake of the assassination attempt on 15-year-old schoolgirl Malala Yousufzai by TTP gunmen.

“How can we hold talks with those who fired shots on Malala Yousufzai, Shazia and Kainat? How can we talk about peace with those who beheaded personnel and officers of the army, police and FC?” the MQM chief said in a speech to party workers on Oct 20. Hussain has also urged the Army to take the ‘bold decision of acting against the terrorists’.

The Pakistani Taliban spokesman also called out to Pakistan’s judges to work for an Islamic system.

“I call out to all the judges who are part of Pakistan’s secular laws and courts: You will also be held accountable in front of God some day. Therefore, you should also work for an Islamic system rather than this godless system,” said Ehsan in the two-page statement.

Moreover, the Taliban spokesman also called out to separatist armed movements in Balochistan and Sindh provinces, urging them to “continue their fight in an Islamic way”.

“I urge the leaders of the nationalist parties in Balochistan and Sindh, like the Baloch Liberation Army (BLA) and the Sindh Liberation Army (SLA), to fight for their rights in an Islamic way,” said the statement.

The Pakistani Taliban also said that they were in the process of forming a strategy with regard to the upcoming general elections.

“We are in the process of forming a policy and will make it public it as soon as a final announcement for elections is made. All current political parties in Pakistan will be divided into three categories in that strategy,” it added.

However, the statement failed to specify what categories these would be.

MQM response

While speaking to Dawn.Com, MQM leader Faisal Sabzwari said that threats against the MQM were not new, but they in turn have never threatened anyone.

He said that MQM wants to make Pakistan the country that the founding fathers, in particular Quaid-e-Azam Mohammad Ali Jinnah, envisioned it to be.

Faisal Sabzwari said that Pakistan belongs to all Pakistani's regardless of their color, creed, race or views.

He also said that the MQM will continue to raise its voice for the rights of women, children, education and minorities.

The MQM leader also said that to advocate the spread of Islam through violence and force only maligns the faith, and they will continue to speak out against it.

ANP condemnation

Speaking to Dawn.Com, ANP Sindh leader Bashir Jan said that his party strongly condemns the statement made by the TTP.

Bashir Jan said that they will never condone the actions of the TTP and condemn the statement in the strongest terms possible.

"We will continue to fight these people and will never allow the rule of terrorists and extremists in this country," he said.

Bashir Jan said that they are the followers of Bacha Khan and will never support unprincipled and undemocratic acts. He also said that they will always support those who are being oppressed.

"Our political differences with the MQM are over small issues, we will support any political party that is being oppressed," he said.

please do not give terrorists any Cover Stories - they are thriving on this and the outlook of the country is getting more unstable by the negativity this has spread. We now have decade long generation of kids who have nothing to enjoy but media flashes of these ignorant group - whatever group or hizb or jamat they like to call themselves, they are terrorists!!
Saeed Nov 02, 2012 10:10pm
So Islamic parties are biggest enemy of Pakistan not a news for me. Alway religious person is against democracy , try to defame political system and politician. People of Pakistan open your eyes trust democracy , trust your democratic goverments .
Muhammad Nov 02, 2012 11:15pm
I don't think PPP or PML(N) will join MQM on this. It is politics Pakistani style. Zardari has already made a statement that: "We have to consider seriously the reaction of TTP, before taking any action." What a shame; the president of the country saying that he cannot take action against insurgency, for fear of reaction of the insurgents?

How can a powerful army and government in a civilized country could possibly hear such threats and do nothing? That doesn
faizanwarraich Nov 02, 2012 02:51pm
See how brutal they are ., in this case than there should be no mercy for these people .the Terrorists .And here I have to mention that , media should use the word terrorist for these people fighting against Pakistan army , in Waziristan area .
Imran A. Nov 02, 2012 03:22pm
MQM has proven to have more guts than all other parties. Kudos to you guys, I think it is time we recognize that you guys made huge sacrifices to make Pakistan in 1947 and now you are taking yet another stand against the Taliban cancer. I will give my vote to MQM in Lahore.
G.Nabi Nov 02, 2012 10:39pm
Altaf Bhai, renounce British citizenship, come back to Pakistan and join the of ranks of your fellow Pakistanis, fight terrorism of TTP. anyone can make speeches from the safe haven of London.
Amir Nov 02, 2012 06:57pm
MQM is the wrong party to mess with. I hope MQM springs back into action and pushes them out of Karachi
Cyrus Howell Nov 04, 2012 08:02am

No one should worry about what Imran Khan thinks? PTI is a Civilized Political Party and condemn this statement of aggression against an other Political Party.
Siddique Malik Nov 02, 2012 03:17pm
Hadi Nov 02, 2012 03:58pm
Altaf Hussain zindabad, If all Pakistn stand in front of terrorism of all kind then society can limit these elements to their hide outs. Lets complete the mission of Malala and these so called Taliban will be history.
Nabeel Nov 02, 2012 03:16pm
Shame on you TTP. You are a cancer of our society and the only way to deal with you is to operate you out of my beloved country Pakistan.
Ashraf Nov 02, 2012 08:19pm
lets hear from Imran Khan on this?
Naved Nov 03, 2012 08:31am
MQM has not done any drone attack or killed these talihan in anyway, even then want to target MQM. This proves that taliban not at all believe in solving the problems by discussion or they cannot tolerate criticism. They just want to kill anyone who opposes them or their ideology. Wake call for taliban supporters and sympathesizers.
Ahmed Nov 03, 2012 04:45pm
You're right and the answer in my view is that this extremist ideology has been penetrated within armed forces too, I'd reckon there are 10-15% TTP and extremist's sympathisers are present there now..
Muhammad Nov 02, 2012 11:07pm
Yusufkhan, you are right but making slogans will not do anything, you have to act. Have you tried to unite people against TTP in any substantive way? If not, do it now.
Syed Nov 02, 2012 09:28pm
This confirms that TTP has outside support that wants to weaken Pakistan
Fahim Nov 02, 2012 10:37pm
Most of the Ethnic communities in Pakistan has always been uncultured due to the lack of education and overdose of conservative values including religion. A revolution is urgently needed to change the mindset of these communities for the good of wider world.
Ashfaq Nov 02, 2012 09:04pm
The country is heading for a civil war. This is bound happen when religion, politics and crime are mixed together. By calling criminals as terrorists or taliban or islamist, we simply defend these murderers. May Allah save Pakistan.
Khurram Nov 02, 2012 06:22pm
Really , stand in front of terrorism? actually no, don't allow anyone else in Karachi to do that .. except them.
Hasib Nov 02, 2012 04:31pm
Theese TTP are nothing for MQM, Hatts off to Altaf Hussain for being so vocal on Main issues.

Aftab Kenneth Wilson Nov 02, 2012 07:16pm
This is very disturbing news. I think it is time to support liberal forces and stop voting in favor of those parties who either support Taliban openly or with minced words. This threat should be taken seriously. We want Muhammad Ali Jinnah's Pakistan.
Rustam Baloch Nov 03, 2012 12:26am
Our problem is that Islam in our country is hijacked by two types of groups. One is the political mullahs who uses Islam for their own political interests and the other group is the radicalized mullahs in from of TTP. We should reclaim Islam. Pakistan was founded on the bases of Quranic ideology. We failed to promote the right Qurnic Islam. That failure created a vacuum where political mullahs and radical groups have founded their place. Our economic and political system should be based on the Quran only. By that we will get rid of sectarianism since Quran is something which is common for all. These political mullahs and the radical elements like TTP will vanish as a matter of fact.
Dennis Dey Nov 02, 2012 06:28pm
I do not know why these leaders do not take a page out of Mahatma Gandhi's book and organize a march from the beaches of Karachi to the Aghan boundaries of Swat, throwing down an open challenge to the Taliban to stop the march if they dare.
Ali Khan Nov 02, 2012 03:29pm
To defeat TTP they have to isolate them from their sponsors sitting across our western borders.
Sidster Nov 03, 2012 06:24pm
The law enforcement machinery has become paralyzed due to lack of Confidence that Politician have shown due to their own dishonesty. Even people do not believe that anybody is a terrorist when government apprehend someone. Why do we have Courts? They should decide who is a Criminal and who is Innocent.
Sagheer ahmed Nov 02, 2012 05:53pm
these ignorant ppl (taliban)will be punished for ever...lets uproot them.they are senseless.

Threat From TTP Is Actually The Success Of MQM's Bold Stance Over Terrorism In The Name of Islam Taliban Pakistan
Furqan Hanif (@Furqan__Hanif) Nov 02, 2012 03:54pm
Have anybody asked that what are the resources of Taliban terrorists. They are equipped with modern arms and ammunition. Our forces spent billions of Rs. to armed itself but how Taliban get themselves armed. The answer is simple These Taliban sort of elements are being funded by the enemies of Pakistan.
Muhammad Farooq Nov 02, 2012 09:46pm
It is good that finally some party has taken a clear stance against the extremist actions of Talibans. We have to fight the menace of Talibans with faith unity and discipline as envisioned by the founder of Pakistan, Muhammad Ali Jinnah. We have to remove this cancer from the body of this country so it can progress and prosper with the blessings of Allah.

Ha Ha Ha Pakistani Taliban Or Jamat-e-Islami . . Threaten To Target MQM.
Javed Nov 02, 2012 11:37pm
Pakistan needs bold leadership to confront the Taliban. I have never been a supporter of MQM & Altaf Hussain but MQM's response to TTP's attempted murder of Malala is a ray of hope that someone is willing to take up the challenge and stand up to them. I think the whole country will unite with MQM on this issue.
muthu Nov 03, 2012 02:21am
Anybody for talks with them even after this?
yusufkhan Nov 02, 2012 02:56pm
These talibani brutes have vowed to decimate Pakistan and take this country to past backward centuries. All sane people must unite and show them their proper place which is deep into jail or hell. They speak as they are agents of Islam and other Muslims are morons.
Yawar Nov 03, 2012 02:53am
It is amazing how the TTP can openly threaten the lives of Pakistanis opposed to their way of thinking and get away with it. Only in Pakistan.
sheikh Nov 02, 2012 04:00pm
I agree,
Ragu Nov 02, 2012 11:12pm
Many in Pakistan should be asking why was Taliban nurtured by Pakistan's state agencies, long after Russians were kicked out; Why was a Taliban government recognized by Pakistan, when they took over Afghanisthan by force? Why is Taliban's barbaric methods acceptable for governing Afghans (as per Pakistan's actions) and not good for Pakistan? Why subject the Islamic brothers and sisters in Kabul to Taliban brutality all in the name of strategic depth?

I think Pakistan heading towards major civil war. God help the people of pakistan.
Feroz Khan Nov 02, 2012 10:46pm
These brainwashed cave dwellers want to drag Pakistan back to 10th century.To counter their threats, Altaf Hussain should come back and lead a campaign against TTP. After all terrorism is here, not in the streets of London.
Akram Nov 02, 2012 03:34pm
Ehsanullah Ehsan you will also face the almighty one day, and you will have to answer for those murders you and your friends committed, the usurpation of religion to promote your thuggery and I hope you will get what it coming to you.

What is this Islamic way? More killings, bombs? Armed insurrection? Certainly not Islamic. Islam is a religon of Ehsan and Iklakh, not Zulm and Kathal.

Because such measures only work in the movies. It takes little to stop a march, especially if the other side is ruthless enough.
TrollyMcTrollton Nov 04, 2012 06:47am
This is probably more of a threat to the ANP rather than the MQM. Karachi is literally the only constituency where the ANP has any genuine supporters, and only because of a complete lack of alternatives.
Cyrus Howell Nov 04, 2012 07:27am
I am sure the innocent people of Karachi will be hiding and ducking for cover.

rashid khan Nov 04, 2012 05:45am
its time to re prioritise our enemies, is the threat to Pakistan internal or externa, thats is it from India or Taliban. What is the purpose of the army? Is the taliban to be allowed to grow from strength to strength? Decide whether you want an army of tin soliders or one that is able to snuff threats to the integrity of society = from any direct, internal or external.
Cyrus Howell Nov 04, 2012 07:31am
They are funded by the one million kilos of heroin that are smuggled out through the port of Karachi each year.
Jamal Nov 04, 2012 03:33pm
And maybe this is the reason why MQM is the noble political party that stands up to Taliban. If anything JI, PTI and MLN are more like Taliban than MQM will ever be
imran Nov 04, 2012 04:03am
i am from faisalabad, but with the time i came to conclusion, that mqm is the only party can defend pakistan from these mentally sick taliban, imran khan is passive supporter of taliban, same is with PML(N) making seat adjustment with jehadi-fasadis...long live MQM
Adnan Nov 02, 2012 03:42pm
When open threats are promulgated against each other, without any fear of being accountable, than we call that a lawless society. Utter chaos!!!!
Ashraf Bugti Nov 03, 2012 08:25pm
MQM has black past against Pushtuns. MQM is responsible for this mess in Karachi. They should be voted out and PTI should be given chance.
Tony Nov 02, 2012 07:22pm
I never liked MQM in life and I really hated their tactics. It seems like MQM is finally evolving from being local pity political entity to grand global agenda party. We welcome that change and would support MQM if they take the leadership. Mr. Altaf Hussein please remember by excluding Punjabi MQM will never become a United party who can lead this nation. Punjabi will support you if your party started to think outside the Karachi. Let's take a fight to Taliban's backyard. We are with you. Two Punjabi are ready to die for every MQM workers if tyrant Taliban attacked them. God bless.

Who will now stand up and protect Pakistan against it

Just get rid of Talibans , they are the enemies of islam and Pakistan.

Its time for Imran Khan and PTI to take a stand. Its time for him to stand against the taliban. Does he have the courage?

Lines are drwan. People who want Jinnah's Pakistan or people who like to live in Taliban's afghanistan. Anyone dare to speak againt their Jahilan idealogy will be killed. Any takers?
Sidster Nov 03, 2012 05:58pm
I agree with your assessment. MQM is no different than PMLN, PMLQ, PPPP and ANP. Singling out one Political Party is wrong and threaten them is even worst. If TTP wants to Run in election , then place your candidate in a Political race. They are threatening the Party so that Younger Generation of Pakistani don't think about competing for anything.
Green&White Nov 02, 2012 04:37pm
Can you show any examples of Pakistanis acting in such Ehsan and Ilkakh, Pakistani talk so much and soooo little action. Main thing is this 99% of Pakistanis, civilians, army, politicians will not publicly speak against the taliban, because they are afraid. So if Pakistan's bravest person is a 15 year old school girl, Then you must understand nothing will change and continue to get worse.
khan in chandler Nov 02, 2012 03:45pm
The state of sad affairs. Now the minority wants to impose its will on majority. Who died and made these guys the king. Where is the rule of law. Pakistan keeps going back into anarchy...Sad.
Fawad Rehman Nov 02, 2012 04:41pm
Altaf Hussain's firm stand against Talibanization is a great thereat to Taliban and their brutal movement. MQM is the only Party in Pakistan who has been and will be Vocal against Talibanization. Altaf hussain warned the Pakistani nation about the Talibanization many years ago. Altaf Hussain great leader with great vision.
Concerned Netizen Nov 02, 2012 06:06pm
The problem is all "sane" people just speak but do not have the guts to do anything substantial.
Azeem Nov 02, 2012 06:06pm
Altaf declared these kind of statement that have no meaning ........... only for election.
Manju Nov 02, 2012 05:14pm
The source of Income to these militant groups has to be blocked.As time goes they will come to compromise with state.Ne need to confront with military.Altaf bai deserves praise for his bold statements.
ali Nov 02, 2012 04:42pm
It is surprising to not that the Zaliman spokesman Ehsanullah has not been caught as yet as he is always in contact with the press and although he keeps on moving, his movements could be monitored much easily by the intelligence agencies.This threat to MQM should be condemned by all and this could mean attacks in Karachi and Hyderabad etc and the security agencies should take note of it as well as life could be paralyzed if Karachi is hit..These uneducated gun tottering murderers know nothing about Islam as such they should forget their religion lay down arms and come to the fold of Islam.They are not going to talk to anybody as such only a big army operation is required to disarm and eliminate them.
faz Nov 03, 2012 12:28pm
Taliban will never attack MQM they are part and parcel of same domestic and foreign players who want to destroy Pakistan for there ultimate goal , we have eyes but can not see wake up people.
shirin Nov 02, 2012 05:34pm
its easy for him. He is safe in London.

Islamic way is to win hearts and minds of people by setting up a good example of oneself. Islam spread only and only because those early Muslims, true Muslims won hearts and minds of the non Muslims through their exemplary behaviour. They never used violence to force Islam through the throats of the people. It is the deeds of each and every soul that will make the soul winner or loser on the day of Judgement.

MR imran khan whats your take on that, do you wanna talk to them and tell them not to come to karachi??

Nasir khan Nov 02, 2012 04:37pm
Nonesence, let we all Pakistanis rise up against the cancer, let we take them in the streets, in the Bazars, in the plains, in the deserts, in the mountains, on the waters and any place of their choosing. How many would you kill?, We are ready and we will not let you exists, not only in this country but in the world, as you are the real culprit and black sheeps who have ruined not only yourself, the country, but also our beautiful religion Islam, which has revealed to the mankind for the peace, love and harmony among all the creation of the God Almighty. Though am not a politician nor do I have any affiliation with any political party, but in this fight for the peace of the people on the world am proud to be with Altaf Hussain.
pakistan lover Nov 02, 2012 05:38pm
we pakistanis and karachiites with altaf . because altaf and MQM want qauid e azam pakistan.not extremists pakistan. we love pakistan ,inshallah we safe our country from barbaric terrorist taliban. pakistan zindabad,altaf hussain zindaabad,MQM zindabad,pakistanis zindaabad

The only way to bring peace in that country is to line them up and shoot them. This TTP or any taliban outfits, they don't know peace talks or any other language. It's useless to talk to them. Are you listening Imran Khan??
Furqan Hanif (@Furqan__Hanif) Nov 02, 2012 03:52pm
Why Taliban do not give threats to other political parties just because other political parties never speaks word against the brutality and lawless acts of Taliban. They are not just against the Sovereignty of Pakistan but are against the peace loving Innocent citizens of this Country.
Sikandar Nov 02, 2012 02:40pm
Why is that the entire Pakistan law enforcement machinery cannot take out these criminals? Is it because there is some collusion between some factions that cannot be discussed in public?

I have always been staunchly against MQM but one must give them credit for such bold statements. Kudos to them.
krishnan Nov 02, 2012 02:42pm
It will be interesting to see if PPP, Nawaz Sharif and IK support MQM or find a way to avoid taking sides.

Not a mass army action, but what needs to be done is targeted elimination of the leadership of these brutal medieval savages.

Nazir Nov 03, 2012 09:52am
TTP (not the Afghan Taliban). Funded by foreign agencies and of course targeting the peace and stability of Pakistan as always. Never before we have seen so many uncircumcised 'Muslims' claiming to be fighting a holy war. If they had any kahunas, they'd be fighting in Afghanistan alongside with the Afghan Taliban there. Sad but true, they will now turn the Medias' attention towards glorifying a semi terrorist outfit (MQM) just in time to clash with the Supreme Courts' hearings that may have helped bring the political rats to justice. Congrats to TTP and their handlers who have once again managed to hurt Pakistan.

Why do you give coverage to what Taliban say? Is it necessary? Let them say what they want.

I hope they don't target any innocent people of karachi, only those people who are dealing in bhutta and involved in target killing. In long run good for karachites!!!

I'm wondering who would be financing this new 'action-plan' of so called TTP ?? Of course they would need a lot of money to tackle a monster like MQM.. where they would be boarding in the metropolis and who will provide them with arms and ammunition in Karachi ?? does anyone have an answer ??
Javed khan Nov 02, 2012 11:33pm
MQM my respect for you has just gone up 10 fold, only you and the ANP have been brave and courageous enough to condemn the Taliban cowards. All political parties should stand in solidarity against these barbarians and there are no good Taliban, you cannot have any armed terrorists in a sovereign country as part of a state policy. We need sincere peace with all our neighbours.
