Talking to rediff.com, Mansoor Maawia, a purported spokesperson for Punjabi Taliban said, "No Ahmadi would live with peace in Pakistan. Our war against them and their followers will continue."
Maawia added, "Today's attack was carried out by Punjabi Taliban, it is a high value target as Ahmadis are as worst infidels as Jews are. They have controlled the affairs of the country and implement Jewish agendas in Pakistan. Our war against Jews, Ahmadis and their followers will continue."
