The expected governor of Sindh and Pakistan Tehreek-I-Insaf leader Imran Ismail complained of not being allowed to enter the Quaid-e-Azam’s mausoleum on 14th August.

Imran Ismail with his party members reached the mausoleum to offer fateha on the graves of the honorary leaders of Pakistan movement buried in the premise. He blamed he was denied access in the mausoleum as per the orders of the Pakistan People’s Party-the ruling party in Sindh.

Imran Ismail stated that his party was made to wait outside while a 300-member group of Pakistan People’s Party along with former Chief Minister Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah visited the mausoleum and left. He added that even the members of Muttahida Qaumi Movement and Grand Democratic Alliance were allowed to enter.

The management of Quaid’s mausoleum, however, has not responded on the controversy. A video circulating on social media shows a group of Pakistan Tehreek-I-Insaf members praying outside the gate.

Pakistan People’s Party, however, has denied the allegations of Imran Ismail and said that they did not issue such orders. It asked Imran Ismail to stop leveling false accusations against them.

Earlier, Imran Ismail announced that he would take action on the encroachment of road inside the Bilawal House as soon as he will be nominated the Governor of Sindh. Pakistan People’s Party, however, announced to protest if actions were taken to target their headquarters.

Imran Ismail stated that his statements were twisted by the PPP’s leadership and he does not intend to harm the Bilawal House. He said, “I have respect for the house of former president but the PPP wants to do politics over my statement,” he added.

Regarding the Governor House Sindh, he said, “We will open Governor House for the public but we have to see how it can be utilized. It can be used as an educational institute, university, or art gallery.”
