LANDI KOTAL: Tehreek-e-Taliban (TTP) issued a pamphlet to owners of mobile phone shops in the Landi Kotal area of Khyber Agency, warning them to stop uploading songs, movies and pictures to mobile phones.

The pamphlet stated that those associated with mobile phone business should wind up and start another business as they are committing "un-Islamic acts" by uploading songs and movies to mobile phones.

Political administration official for the area Amjid Shinwari confirmed that the pamphlet was issued by unidentified TTP militants on August 12 and added that these pamphlets were distributed and pasted on the shutters of various mobile phone shops.

The shop and market owners are also threatened of dire consequences if the instructions are not followed.

“The owner of this market along with the businessmen would be targeted,” the pamphlet stated.
