Taliban aim to kill democracy in Pakistan

Against the backdrop of a spate of attacks on election meetings and campaign offices ahead of the May 11 polls, Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan chief Hakimullah Mehsud has said his group is focussed on ending the country’s democratic system. The Taliban’s aim is to ‘end the democratic system’, Mehsud said in a letter to the media. As part of this campaign, the group will hinder elections in the country, he said.


An independent candidate in Pakistan’s upcoming polls and two companions were gunned down in Balochistan province, the latest in a string of attacks targeting politicians and campaign offices.
