PESHAWAR: The banned outfit Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has created its own website for the purpose of streaming videos and publishing magazines, interviews, statements etc.
An official statement released by information and publication wing of TTP said that ‘Umar Media’ has sponsored the website.
In August 2008, TTP was declared a banned outfit in Pakistan.
“Statements, videos, announcements and magazine released by the TTP will be available on the website,” the statement added.
On the other hand, the website by TTP has been opposed by Pakistani social media activists.
They have criticized Pakistan Telecommunication Authority (PTA) for allowing a banned outfit to openly launch a website while YouTube and Xbox remain inaccessible in Pakistan.
The activists said that TTP website contains propaganda and violent material especially against military forces.
