KARACHI: Soon after Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan said that he was not afraid of the Taliban and that threats will not deter his plan to march into Waziristan, ex-Junoon guitarist Salman Ahmad tweeted that he will accompany the 'peace caravan'.

Tweeting from his personal Twitter account @sufisal, Ahmad on Thursday announced, “I’ll be traveling with IK’s [Imran Khan’s] peace caravan to Waziristan.”

The tweet was apparently in response to Khan’s tweet from his official account @ImranKhanPTI which said, “A man of faith doesn’t fear death & a march for peace against drones that have destroyed millions of lives of Fata people is worth dying for.”

Khan had sent out this tweet after reports emerged which stated that the Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) had threatened to kill him if he marched into their tribal stronghold Waziristan. The Taliban spokesperson later clarified that the Taliban did not say they would kill him, but they still see him as an “infidel” for being a “liberal”.

The Taliban said that their top leadership will decide whether to allow Khan to march into Waziristan or not.

Earlier in July, Khan had announced he was planning to lead thousands of people in a march to Waziristan in September to protest against drone strikes.
