SHEIKHUPURA: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan on Sunday said that there are protests across the country due to the Sharif family and the Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) over the issue of Khatam-e-Nabuwat [Finality of the Holy Prophet (PBUH)].
Addressing a political gathering in Sheikhpura, the PTI also criticised the hypocrisy of the PML-N for calling itself a liberal party in the West, and claiming instead that he had the backing of religious and other extremist organisations.
“(Foreign Minister) Khawaja Asif said in the USA that the N-League is liberal, while PTI has support of religious parties,” he said.
He said the attempt was made to make amendments in the Khatam-e-Nabuwat clause to appease Western lobbies which has been exposed. “An attempt has been made to amend the oath and they have been caught red-handed.”
He further said that the entire Sharif family will be held accountable when the Hudaibiya case is reopened. “Hudaibiya case will implicate the entire Sharif family,” he said adding that former National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chairman Qamar Zaman will also be held accountable.
Imran Khan said that it is easy to indulge in corrupt practices while in power, but he has never even been involved in any appointment in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa. “A corrupt prime minister destroys institutions to make money,” he said that they introduced transparency and merit-based system in the province to bring reforms in the police, education and other sectors.
He vowed to reform the NAB when in power and apprehend all culprits. “The present NAB is indicting that even those responsible for petty crimes will be held responsible.”
He said Pakistan will rise up and requires only two hundred people, and if the Inspector General in KP can reform the police force, then so could the police officials in other provinces.
He added that investment will flow when the system is reformed, adding that Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari did not introduce a merit-based system and destroyed institutions. “Sharif and Zardari are having their final days,” he said.
