Peace march kicks off in Pakistan amid Taliban threat
The march started from Islamabad, Lahore, Peshawar and other places, Geo News reported.
Former cricketer and PTI chief Imran Khan said: "We are not going to fight anyone. Everyone should take benefit from the march, if we are asked to halt then we will stop."
The Taliban had earlier warned the PTI against holding the rally, blaming it to be a sympathizer of the west, the Jews and the Christians.
"I was blamed to be a supporter of Taliban, now they are blaming me for working for the West," Khan said.
He blamed Islamist leader Maulana Fazlur Rahman for "spreading disinformation" about him.
