Lahore, Apr.29 (ANI): Infuriated by the military operation against the Taliban in which 70 extremists have been killed so far, the Tehreek-e-Nifaaz-e-Shariat-e-Muhammadi (TNSM) has warned of launching a ’storm’ across Pakistan.
TNSM chief Sufi Mohammad’s son Rizwanullah Farooq said the peace accord between the government and the TNSM is on the verge of collapse, and if that happens, the whole country would have to bear the consequences.
“The peace accord has weakened and is shaky. If it breaks, there will be a storm in the whole country,”The Daily Times quoted Farooq, as saying.
Meanwhile, TNSM spokesperson Ameer Izzat Khan has claimed that the Taliban had not demolished any public property in Maidan and had neither declared war against the government.
“There was no justification for the operation in Maidan,” Khan said. (ANI)
