LANDIKOTAL: Lashkar-i-Islam’s Amir Haji Mangal Bagh Thursday warned women of the Khyber Agency against casting their votes in the February 18 general elections, saying the lashkar would not allow women to cast votes in the forthcoming elections.
Addressing a gathering at the residence of ex-MNA and prominent tribal elder, Haji Ayub Afridi, Mangal Bagh said those, who would allow their women to cast their votes in NA-45 and NA-46, would face dire consequences.
He said the lashkar would not allow the women of the agency to come out of their houses and cast votes in the forthcoming elections. Fifty-two thousands women voters would be deprived of their right to vote, if Mangal Bagh succeeds in implementing his warning in the agency.
