DERA ISMAEL KHAN - Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) on Thursday denied reports in the media that they had threatened to kill Imran Khan if he came to Waziristan for peach march, reported a private TV channel.

TTP spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan while talking to the media said he was misquoted in an interview to a foreign news agency.

Replying to a query about Imran Khan’s visit to Waziristan, he replied that the TTP Shura would decide on the course of action, saying that the TTP had no sympathy for Imran Khan nor did they need his compassion.

He further said that the cricketer-turned-politician claimed to be a liberal and they considered liberals as infidels.

Earlier on Wednesday, an American news agency reported that the Taliban had threatened to kill Imran Khan if he holds a planned march to their tribal stronghold to protest US drone attacks.

Although the Pakistani Taliban also oppose the strikes, spokesman Ahsanullah Ahsan said they would attack Imran Khan because he calls himself a ‘liberal’ a term they associate with a lack of religious belief.
