ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan regretted that the shoes could not hit US President Bush hurled by Iraqi journalist Muntazir Zaidi during the press conference. Talking to a private TV Channel on Thursday, he said, “Zaidi is my hero and he should be released immediately”.
He said that US had lost its war on terror as the people all over the world hated with its policies and the hurling of shoes was the demonstration of the hate. He criticized the Muslims leaders for serving US as it used to kill Muslims all over the world but the leaders seeking their place in US administration’s feet.
He said that Pak army is killing its own people even neither any Pakistani was involved in 9/11 incidents nor Osama Bin Laden was in Pakistan saying 10 million people were forced to leave their homes only to get dollars. Quoting Maliah Lodhi, he said that Pakistan had to bear the loss of $34 billions but US had given only $12 billions to the government of Pakistan.
He criticized former President Musharraf for dragging the country into a bloody war saying Musharraf showed fist to the nation but surrendered on only one call of US.
He criticized the current government for not taking any steps against US drone attacks saying US attacked more than hundred times on the country’s land. “The nation does not respect itself no one respect it” Imran said.
The rulers are not restoring deposed CJ Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry as they feel that they would be prosecuted for the corruption forgiven by NRO, PTI Chairman added. The government while terming deposed CJ as controversial put a side but on the other hand also backing controversial CJ Dogar, Imran said.
The current government has crossed the limits of former President Musharraf for bending down its head before US that he termed as the utmost example of slavery, he criticized. To a question, he said that the cancellation of Indian cricket team visit to Pakistan would leave bad impact on Pak-India relations.-SANA
