The banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan on Saturday launched its ‘official’ website hosting videos, a magazine, and its leaders’ interviews and statements.
An alleged news release issued by the “information and publication” wing of the TTP said Umar Media had sponsored the website, which would serve as the central information portal of the outfit.
“Statements, videos, announcements and magazine released by the TTP will be available on the website,” the release said. It added that Umar Media was the “only authorised body” to issue messages and statements for and on behalf of the TTP.
The website contains the TTP flag, verses from the Holy Quran, statements and videos containing sectarian hatred and propaganda material,
The site carries the e-mail address of central spokesman of the TTP Shahidullah Shahid and also invites articles for ‘public information’. It may be noted that the TTP was declared a banned terror outfit in August 2008.
