The Pakistan Taliban has issued a threat to former Pakistan President Pervez Musharraf, saying that unless he surrendered to them, they would 'send him back to hell'.
The video is narrated in English by Taliban commander Adnan Rasheed with Urdu sub titles. Rasheed was reportedly part of a previous assassination attempt on Musharraf.
The former President who arrived in Karachi on Sunday, said that he was unfazed by the Taliban threats. "They have been trying to send me to hell for twelve years now. Although I don't take their threats lightly. I will step up my security and leave the rest to God", he said in an interview with CNN-IBN.
Musharraf announced in early March that he would return to Pakistan to take part in upcoming elections, despite allegations he was part of a conspiracy to assassinate ex-premier Benazir Bhutto, militant threats to his safety and a waning popularity. The deposed general said he would lead his party in elections scheduled for 11 May.
“I am going back to save Pakistan,” he told reporters during a press conference in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates.
