Taliban Peshawar,Apr.13(ANI):TheTehreek-e-Nifaz-e-Shariat-e-Muhammadi (TNSM) and the Swat chapter of Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP), have announced that those Members of the National Assembly (MNA) who oppose the Nizam-e-Adl Regulation bill in Parliament will be considered infidels.

TNSM spokesperson Izat Khan asserted that being Muslims is the right of the people of the Malakand division, and therefore, they also have the right to impose the sharia in their area and decide the matters according to the Quranic rulings.

“Those members of the Parliament who would cast votes against Nizam-e-Adl Regulation would contest the next general election from minority seats as after opposing the bill they would not have the right to contest polls on the Muslim seats. They would be considered as infidels or enemies of Islam,” The Nation quoted TTP spokesperson Haji Muslim Khan, as warning.

Khan charged the Pakistan Government of not being sincere in establishing peace in the region.

He also criticized the country’s leadership for playing into the hands of the United States.

“Pakistan’s leadership is a US puppet and they are killing their own people for the sake of American dollars,” Khan said. (ANI)
