The main faction of the Pakistani Taliban, which is based in South Waziristan, issued a statement Friday calling Khan a “slave of the West,“ adding that the militants ”don’t need any sympathy“ from such ”a secular and liberal person.”

“Imran Khan’s so-called Peace March is not in sympathy for drone-hit Muslims. Instead, it’s an attempt by him to increase his political stature,” the statement continued.

The former cricket star long had a reputation as a playboy, but has recently started saying that he has grown stronger in his Muslim faith. He also has used attacks on the U.S. drone program as a means of gaining public esteem in Pakistan.

By Saturday, a statement from a Taliban faction said to be based in eastern Pakistan warned that militants would welcome the protesters with suicide bombings.

“We ask the brave people of Waziristan not to side with the gang of Jews and Christians – otherwise their fate will be terrible,” the Punjabi Taliban said in the statement.
