Blood revolution sure if soft revolution to be stopped: Imran

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said that the revolution would take place through gun if the government tried to stop the soft revolution through restoration of deposed Chief Justice Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry. Addressing a press conference here along with the lawyers’ leadership at PTI Secretariat here on Tuesday, he said that the long march was the democratic right of the people but even though the government was going to use force to stop it then ultimately it would harm the government first and democracy later.

Flaying President Zardari on appoint of fresh judges in Sindh and Lahore, he said President Zardari appointed the judges who contested elections on the ticket of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) adding that President Zardari wanted to make the judiciary his ‘B’ team.

He demanded of the government to reinstate the deposed judges including deposed CJ Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry as 80 percent people wanted his restoration. To a question, Imran vowed that PTI would be the largest party among the participants of the long march.

He apologized from the Sri Lankan government and the team for not providing sufficient security as they tried to help Pakistan cricket out of the crisis. He demanded of Governor Punjab to resign on the security failure. To a question, he said that Lahore attacks would not leave any impact on the long march; however, he said that if any thing was going to happen then all the responsibility would on the shoulders of Asif Ali Zardari.-SANA

  • how disappointing to see a man of Imran’s stature throwing out statements like “the long march will happen at the force of a gun” .. as if we need to be reminded in these brutal times that there is yet another force before which we have to bow…
    it’s shocking to hear him further say that all responsibility would be on Zardari.. firstly to think of something so ghastly and secondly, in shock that a man as seemingly intelligent as him, cannot figure out that even if these men of Lahore attack are Pakistanis, they too have played into the hands of a history that has eaten away at our roots for the last seven decades. they weren’t born yesterday and they don’t live in Swiss Alps so that they don’t feel the agony of hunger or the pain of their home smashing under an American drone. these things impact human psyche as any psych 101 book will tell you.
    lastly… these judges! they’ve become a laughingstock. short-sighted and selfish. fine ones to declare Zardari is insecure…Iftikhar Chaudhry’s ego isn’t doing any better now is it?
