TTP Letter to Pakistani Media, Complete Text:

If we study the history of humankind, we come to know that the war between the truth and falsehood is being fought continuously.

Both groups in the war consider their rival false and wrong therefore they always fight each other to the end but in a civilized society the people on the right path are considered those who are able to prove their truthfulness with firm and strong facts.

It is clear that every belief or religion has its own principles, rules and regulations about war affairs, the people belonging to them take great care of them. The People who consider themselves impartial and do not participate in war are provided special care.

The conflict in Pakistan is between two ideologies and beliefs in which we are fighting as one group.

We are Muslims and we are fighting this war for the sake of the rise of Islam and to defend Muslims and their rights because A Muslim can never compromise with anyone on the rights of Islam and Muslims, but the Pakistani media behaves towards us in this battle in such a way that is even against its own principles.

To spread false and baseless news, make propaganda against us on behalf of our enemies and playing the role of war propagandists, they call Mujahedeen with bad, disgusting and absurd names, blaspheme Islamic traditions, do not listen to our views or get the results of its own choice by changing our views, messages and statements, represent Islamic teachings in wrong and misleading ways, act as a judge to us on every matter, it thinks it has a legitimate right to carry out all these duties.

We have always been tolerating its unjust harsh criticism and false allegations but right now during the Waziristan operation its shameless brazen character has crossed its limit and got extremely unbearable.

As a result of its irresponsible, thoughtless and criminal behavior there is extreme distraction, restlessness and rage among Mujahedeen that is no way auspicious for its members because we have tolerated from 2000 to 2014 such an unbearable behavior long enough.

This message is aimed at making you aware that if we get engaged in attacking them then no crying and sobbing will be heard and we think accomplishing our legitimate and decent mission without attending to criticism of any criticizer is our appropriate right, we realize our responsibilities properly. We want to remind you that we always remember our enemies and before we bolster attempts to get our rights back and the Pakistani media loses its chance to repent, it (the media) needs to purge itself from its dishonest intentions, reprehensible shameless character and prevailing satanic and cruel activities.
