MIRAMSHAH, Oct 10: The Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan has warned that those found selling `I am Malala` the book authored by Malala Yousufzai will face serious action as she had not performed any act of bravery but swapped her religion Islam with secularism for which she is being rewarded.

Talking to this correspondent on phone on Thursday, TTP spokesman Shahidullah Shahid said they knew that Malala would get awards from the enemies of Islam.

`Malala abandoned Islam for secularism for which she is being given awards,` he said, adding that the media and the international community should keep in mind that students of Jamia Hafsa, Islamabad, were never given any award despite their immense bravery.

`The Taliban will not lose an opportunity to kill Malala Yousufzai and those who were found selling her book will be targeted.

He denied that Swat TTP commander Maulana Fazlullah had been killed in an ambush as reported by the media from the Kunar province of Afghanistan.

He also said the government was not serious about talks with the Taliban.

`We are not killing innocent people. A third force is targeting common people to malign the Taliban,` he said.
