Islamabad, Mar 17 (ANI): Al Qaeda chief Ayman al-Zawahiri has urged Pakistanis to revolt against their government and military in a video posted on the Internet on Friday, US monitors have said.
In a 10-minute speech uploaded for jihadist forums, Zawahiri argued that the Pakistani authorities only represented US interests, the Daily Times quoted a statement from SITE Intelligence Group, as saying.
Zawahiri further urged Pakistanis to follow the example of the Arab Spring as the military could not be expected to turn against America despite a deadly US strike on Pakistani troops in November.
"O our brothers in Pakistan! O our people in Pakistan! This treacherous army and bribe-taking government have plundered your wealth," he said in the video.
"Take a lead from your brothers in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, Yemen and Syria who are standing up against oppression and oppressors with their bare chests exposed and offering sacrifices so that victory may be ordained for then," Zawahiri added. (ANI)
