Islamabad, Apr 21: The Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) and Tehreek-e-Nifaz-e-Shariat-e-Muhammadi (TNSM) have now banned political parties in the Bajaur region of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA).

Both the separatist organizations have also issued a jirga banning meeting of more than three persons at a same place.

According to the Daily Times, the decision was taken after four persons were killed in a clash between the activists of these two groups.

The latest ban adds to the long list of activities that the Taliban has prohibited in the region.

The outlawed outfit had also barred women from venturing out of their house alone. Sale and purchase of music cd's and film videos have also been banned.

Growing beard and wearing turban has been made mandatory for men in the region.
