Pakistani Taliban members are threatening store owners to quit selling Viagra-type potency pills or “face the consequences,” according to a media report.

The shopkeepers are also being warned against selling “obscene films,” Agence France-Presse reports. The warnings are being distributed via handwritten pamphlets, the outlet reports.

“Selling sex, drugs, vulgar films and obscene movies are against Sharia,” the pamphlets read, in the name of a Taliban official, AFP reported. “All those involved in this business are warned to quit this occupation and start a lawful business or face the consequences.”

The market of this latest Taliban target is located in Pakistan’s northwestern city of Peshawar. Threats against shopkeepers for selling products offensive to the Taliban are not uncommon; hundreds of music shops have been targeted and bombed in the past, AFP reports.
