Following a deadly attack on Bacha Khan University in Charsadda area of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of Pakistan, a faction of Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) has vowed to carry out more similar attacks in the future.
The faction led by Omar Mansoor claimed responsibility behind the attack on Bacha Khan University which claimed lives of at least 21 people while scores of others were wounded.
In a videotaped message posted on Facebook social media website, Mansoor warned to target more universities and schools, claiming that such institutions promote democratic governance instead of Muslim theocracy.
He appeared in the video along with the four assailants of Bacha Khan University attack, insisting that the Pakistani people must ‘repent of polytheism and democracy.”
Mansoor vowed to disrupt the system and its foundation that has come from Britain and America and is human made, emphasizing on the establishment of Allah’s system and rule.
The Taliban faction led by Mansoor had also claimed responsibility behind a deadly attack on a school in Peshawar city of Pakistan late in 2014, which left at least 130 children dead.
There are fears that the latest declaration by Mansoor faction of the Taliban group could begin a new wave of jihadist violence in Pakistan where the country’s military has fought to suppress the militants.
