The senior leaders of the Pakistani Democratic Movement were warned of possible “terrorism” on December 13th (the day of the opposition Minar-e-Pakistan rally in Lahore).
The Lahore police have sent letters to Maulana Fazlur Rehman, PDM chief, Maryam Nawaz, PML-N vice president, and lawmakers Khawaja Saad Rafique and Sardar Ayaz Sadiq, and PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari.
“TTP terrorists are coordinating to carry out a terrorist activity on 13 December, 2020. Although details regarding place of terrorist activity and likely targets is not available, the date (13 December 2020) appears to be significant as a huge public gathering is expected at Minar-e-Pakistan,” read the letter.
It states that after the terrorists failed in their attempt in Peshawar, “they are planning to shift their operatives, required material and logistics towards another place (most likely Lahore)”.
The letter warned that existing information indicated that hostile intelligence agencies and the Afghanistan-based Trik e-Taliban Pakistan planned to carry out terrorist activities in Punjab State, especially Lahore.
The letter stated that a meeting was held on the western border on December 8 to “surge (sic) terrorist activities in Pakistan.”
These hostile intelligence agencies “may also carry out assassinations of senior political personalities associated with PDM” to create instability in the country, it further warns
“Besides other targets, political and religious personalities or high profile figures of minorities in Punjab Province are on their priority list,” the letter adds.
