`Real` Pakistan Taliban vow to kill Malala on return to country
Islamabad: A senior representative of Tehreek-e-Taliban has said they will shoot Malala Yousafzai if she chose to return to Pakistan.
The representative said that the group had no sympathies with the teenager, who was shot last year for demanding education for girls.
According to the Express Tribune, he said that Malala had been targeted because of her efforts in promoting secular education in Pakistan.
The representative said that the Taliban Council had obtained the draft of the letter that Rashid had sent Malala, and whether it had any content that went against the rules of the Taliban was being assessed.
He added that the council will also look into the purpose for which the letter had been written to Malala.
Taliban`s prominent leader in Pakistan Adnan Rashid said that he was `shocked` after Malala was attacked by the Taliban in October last year.
Rashid had been convicted in 2003 by the state of Pakistan for trying to assassinate former president Pervez Musharraf.
He wrote Malala advising her to return and join a religious school for women in Swat, the report added.
