Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday urged the nation to reach Islamabad on March 27 — when Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is set to hold a massive rally — to tell the world that Pakistanis “stand with the truth and are against corruption”. PM Imran Khan said that Islamabad’s Sindh House is the hub of horse trading where conscience of lawmakers was being traded. He said that the political opponents fear landing in jail if Imran Khan stayed in power for some more time. The prime minister while declaring the next few days important said that he will hunt down all his opponents.
“People’s conscience is being auctioned, it is the duty of people now to stand against evil,” the Prime Minister Imran Khan told a PTI public gathering at the Grassy Ground, Saidu Sharif in district Swat.
PM Imran Khan, lashing out at Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) and JUI-F Maulana Fazlur Rehman, said he blamed him to be part of the “Jewish” lobby. “But the person who was blamed to of the lobby got a resolution against Islamophobia passed in the United Nations.”
“I, my Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, our Ambassador Munir Akram, and our Foreign Office were trying to get a resolution against Islamophobia passed in the United Nations passed from the last three years,” he told the participants of the public gathering.
The premier explained that after the 9/11 attacks in the United States, the Western nations had termed Islam to be synonymous with terrorism.
“Terrorism has no religion, and despite Islam having no link with terrorism, a perception was created that terrorism is being spread across the world due to terrorism,” the prime minister said.
In a meeting of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) three years back, the prime minister said he had raised the issue of Islamophobia, and after that, he raised it again in the UN.
“Before that, no Pakistani leader had raised the issue at the UN. Earlier, my Pakistanis would come out on the streets and cause property damage. At that time, I told them: Don’t do this, I will this case internationally,” he said.
The prime minister said he has been receiving felicitation from across the Muslim World after the UN passed the resolution to mark March 15 as “International Day to Combat Islamophobia”.
The resolution landmark resolution was introduced by Pakistan, on behalf of the OIC.
“I want to ask you Fazlur Rehman: In the last 30 years, you were part of every government. Did you ever persuade any Western leader to speak against Islamophobia? Did you even speak to them?”
The prime minister lashed out at Fazl for taking out rallies against him and telling his madrassah students that the premier was part of the “Jewish” lobby.
He took a jibe at former prime minister Mian Muhammad Nawaz Sharif and told him that when he was holding papers to speak with ex-US president Barack Obama, he should have at least held two papers that mentioned Islamophobia and Kashmir.
“But the slaves, who consider money as their god and worship it, their kanpien tanganigi (legs will tremble) before the American president,” the prime minister said, lashing out at PML-N supremo Nawaz.
PM Imran Khan said he “looks eye-to-eye” with the president of the United States or any other country, as for him, “no one but Allah is God.”
He reiterated that despite repeated US-backed drone attacks in Pakistan, no leader of that time — ex-president Asif Ali Zardari and former premier Nawaz Sharif — raised their voice against it, as they were corrupt. PM Imran Khan said Zardari and Nawaz had embarrassed Pakistan globally due to their corrupt practices.
