Imran Khan, the chairman of the PTI and a former prime minister, expressed concern about PML-N leader Ishaq Dar’s homecoming on Tuesday and promised to “obstruct Dar’s path” because the country’s court system “failed” to stop him, calling it a “misfortune.”
This was stated by Khan during his speech at the Peshawar Ulema and Mashaikh Convention.
He added that the incoming finance minister has returned to Pakistan as a result of a National Reconciliation Ordinance (NRO) agreement, saying “Pakistan’s treasury is being given over to someone who was an absconder for five years.”
As the PML-N leader takes the oath of office as a senator and is ready to take over as the nation’s new finance minister, Khan declared, “Insha’Allah! I will obstruct Dar’s way.”
“Nawaz Sharif, the president of the PML-N, should not be involved in such important things,” Khan remarked “Outside, a fugitive is making decisions for Pakistan. This idea does not exist in the West; someone running the country from abroad after stealing billions of rupees. ”
The PTI leader made comments about the coalition government at the centre and its leaders, claiming that they were there to “guard their theft” rather than “service the public.”
“The country is seeing its highest level of inflation in fifty years. The unemployment rate has increased, the economy has deteriorated,” said Khan.
Sixty percent of the cabinet members are out on bail, he continued.
“Animals live in a society where the rule of law does not exist. When justice is not upheld, a country is destroyed”, the former prime minister continued by drawing comparisons between Switzerland in Europe and the legal system in Muslim nations.
“If you want to see justice, travel to Switzerland. Switzerland has no natural resources, but have a look at how prosperous they are. Only 20% of Muslim nations have a strong legal system. It is entirely true in Switzerland,” said he.
He advised attendees of the convention to visit Sweden and Britain if they wanted to see a welfare state during his speech.
“Poor individuals in western nations receive free medical care. Justice is provided to the underprivileged in western countries,” he said.
“How are people here treated by the police? Shahbaz Gill was tortured and stripped”, he complained.
The PTI leader further accused Maulana Fazlur Rehman, the leader of the PDM and JUI-F, of being a part of a government when such brutality is taking place.
