a Bara-based Islamic fascisti group has warned Zakhakhel tribe to either provide it with volunteers or leave the area. Sources said that Islamic fascisti affiliated with Lashkar-e-Islam (LI) distributed pamphlets and made announcements through loudspeakers in Shalobar area, asking Zakhakhels to send them volunteers or leave the area.
The announcements triggered fear among Zakhakhel rustics and it was learnt that some of them started shifting to safer places. Sources said that LI members in Nawia Kamar, Malikdinkhel and Baz Garha Qamarkhel forcibly stopped supply of edibles and other daily use items to Zakhakhel sub-tribe of Zaoddin. The LI also warned local doctors against treating Zakhakhel patients in the same area.
