The Taliban in South Waziristan have reportedly warned police to leave the area within three days, and ordered locals to cut communication with authorities and stay away from an upcoming visit by Pakistan’s prime minister.

The message was delivered via Urdu-language pamphlets distributed in Wana, the district headquarters of South Waziristan, on Sunday night ahead of a planned visit by Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan. He is scheduled to make a public address at a local football ground on Wednesday.

The Taliban reportedly ordered an immediate police withdrawal under threat of force. Police vehicles were identified in the pamphlets, indicating that the group had staked out the local area and were monitoring authorities on an ongoing basis.

Threats were also issued against local journalists in addition to aid workers tackling a polio crisis in the region. The group also condemned a series of recent cultural events which it claimed were promoting indecency and vulgarity.

Adviser to Chief Minister Ajmal Khan Wazir told Dawn that the PM’s visit would go ahead as planned.

The threats come as concerns have been raised by lawmakers over increased incidents of extortion, kidnapping for ransom, and child abuse in a quickly deteriorating security situation.

“A week ago, I went to South Waziristan and saw gun-toting good Taliban roam around,” ANP parliamentary leader Sardar Hussain Babak said, as cited by Dawn.

Babak also decried what he claimed was government silence on the high-profile kidnapping, torture and murder of police officer Tahir Dawar in Islamabad in 2018. The recent pamphlets also referenced Dawar’s kidnapping. His body was foundnear the border with Afghanistan in October of last year.

RT does not have very reliable sources of information.It often uses Indian sources so people who read RT reports should be careful and check other media as well.I do visit RT website to get an alternative point of view.The mainstream western media is also biased so many different sources are needed to verify news reports

when the PM himself openly says in jalsa that PTM demands are genuine then wait for the results. You can’t be so simple to give space to traitors.PM must have said no body would be allowed or to give permission to talk against Pakistan. IMRAN khan gave PTM chance to enter parliament and become eligible to talk internationally against Pakistan. How can you then declare them as terrorists?? They have considerable reason to say we are parliamentarians and could enjoy all the Privileges. Our PM will have to change his soft stance about Taliban. Otherwise it would be irreplaceable loss for our country.
