There is a strong alliance between jihadi and sectarian groups in Pakistan. All of these groups belong to extremist interpretations and practices of Deobandi and Wahhabi sects.
These groups are sectarian in nature, and violent in terms of their international jihadi agenda.
In Pakistan, these groups are supported by Deobandi parties such as Jamaat-e-Islami, JUI, Imran Khan’s Tehreek-e-Insaf and also be Salafi / Wahhabi parties such as Lashkar-e-Taiban and Jamaat-ud-Dawa.
Deobandi and Wahhabi (pro-Taliban) political leaders (such as General Hamid Gul, Aslam Beg, Ruedad Khan) and pro-Taliban journalists (such as Dr Shahid Masood, Ansar Abbasi, Orya Maqbool Jan, Irfan Siddiqi, Dr Shireen Mazari etc) support them.
We demand that terrorists and their supporters must be immediately arrested, and tried in a court of law for treason against Pakistan and its people.
