According to a newspaper report, a jirga organised by the Jamaat-e-Islami threatened to besiege the homes of candidates taking part in a by-election for the National Assembly seat from Bajaur Agency vacated by Sahibzada Haroonur Rashid in protest against an airstrike on a madrassa in which more than 80 people were killed a few weeks ago.

The jirga demanded the government cancel the by-election and warned that the tribesmen would destroy ballot boxes at the polling stations if the election were conducted. The jirga warned people against filing nomination papers for the constituency, saying that those participating in the election would be considered enemies of the madrassa air raid victims.

He said that the government had announced a by-election in the area to divert people's attention and urged the people not to participate in the polling. staff report.

The people of Bajaur Agency, Tribal Areas expressed great concern over the hurling of threats by the Taliban to them. They demanded of the government to tame the Taliban otherwise a full scale may erupt in the agency.
