KARACHI: Syed Ali Raza Abidi, an MNA belonging to Muttahida Qaumi Movemnent (MQM) claimed that a twitter account with the name of Tehreek-e-Taliban has issued him, Haider Abbas Rizvi and other anti- Taliban twitteratis a death threat in their tweet.
The tweet with the user name of @TehreekeTaliban mentions Pakistan Peoples Party chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari, MQM MNA Ali Raza Abidi, MQM leader Haider Abbas Rizvi, Journalist and writer Beena Sarwar and Pakistan correspondent for International News Agency Reuters, Mehreen Zahra Malik, News Anchor Moeed Pirzada PPP leader Fawad Chaudhry and others.
The twitter account warns all of them in clear words to stop speaking against Taliban.
The tweet says “No Matter How Much Safe You Feel Inside Your Houses, Remember You Are Always In Our Access — Stop Propaganda Or Get Ready to be killed.”
However it is not verified, if the twitter account actually belongs to TTP.
It must be noted that Pakistan’s Taliban rebels have a history of killing Pakistan’s anti-Taliban mouthpieces.
MQM MNA tweets with the username of @abidifactor.
