ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan on Friday said that the October 6 news leak regarding the high-level security meeting is a sensitive issue and action must be taken against all those who are responsible for the news item which breached national security, ARY News reported.
In an interview with ARY News, Imran Khan claimed that the news item used the same language ‘Modi’ and ‘Israel’ uses against Pakistan’s armed forces.
“People belonging to a certain political class are pretending as if this breach is no big deal but if you see the US presidential elections, Hillary Clinton is facing an inquiry into her emails breaching national security,” said the PTI chief.
He lamented that the controversial news item came at a time that when the army is fighting on all fronts and is stressed due to the cross-border firing, anti-terror war and national security responsibilities.
“The language used was of Narendra Modi, the Israeli lobby, which is against our nuclear program,” said Imran Khan.
The PTI chief added that the delay in investigation makes him think that the ‘Royal Family’ (Sharif Family) is involved in the security breach and a prompt action will lead to the the ruling family.
“They can sacrifice people like Pervaiz Rasheed; but not the Sharif family,” said Imran Khan.
Answering a question about Muttahida Qaumi Movement- Pakistan (MQM-P) resolution demanding treason trial of Pervaiz Khattak, Khan maintained that the resolution was submitted not by MQM but ‘MQM-Noon League’.
“Now there is a MQM- Noon League; I want to ask them that didn’t the courts allow us to protest? why was a caravan led by an elected Chief Minister was stopped from meeting their party chairman?,” asked the PTI chief.
MQM Pakistan had submitted a resolution against the KP CM for his ‘provocative statements which promoted hatred among provinces’
Reminiscing a past incident regarding MQM, he claimed that when he met Scotland Yard for submitting proofs against Altaf Hussain, Azeem Ahmad Tariq’s widow telephoned him and claimed that the same people who murdered
“I will never forget, his (Azeem Ahmad Tariq) widow telephoned me and said that the same people who murdered her husband were leading his funeral and shrouded him in MQM flag,” said Imran Khan.
