Imran Khan should be treated according to laws: Zubair



Former Governor Sindh and senior leader of Pakistan Muslim League-N, Muhamad Zubair Friday said Pakistan Thereek e Insaf Chairman Imran Khan should be treated according to laws of the country in cases filed against him.   He while addressing a press conference along with senior PML-N leader Nihal Hashmi here at Karachi Press Club  said three PML-N leaders including Nihal Hashmi, Talal Choudhry and Danyal Aziz- were sentenced and disqualified by the apex courts in cases of the same nature in the past.

At that time PTI was all praise to courts’ decisions and termed it victory of justice, he added  Muhammad Zubair  said “IHC granted Imran Khan a week’s time to improve his response in contempt case.”  He was of the view that the courts while deciding the matter of Imran Khan should also consider the precedents of Hashmi, Talal and Danyal cases.

Imran Khan who always boasts of equal treatment to all under law should also act in accordance with his own words and accept the penalty as prescribed by law of the land or confess that was government in past intimidated and unlawfully subjected the PML-N leadership, he said.

Referring to a leaked audio recording of a conversation between Shoukat Tareen and finance ministers of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, he strongly censured the former finance minister for remarks which clearly negate the national interests.  “Having served in capacity of finance minister of the country twice and holding key positions in important financial entities Shoukat

Tareen should have considered the impact of words he uttered,” Zubair regretted and alleged that PTI apparently wanted to sabotage the Pakistan IMF dialogue for financial assistance program.  A professional and seasoned economist like Tareen was not supposed to have such an approach, he assumed and asserted that it demonstrated the political approach of Imran Khan who was desperately wanted to regain the power even at the cost of national interests.

Imran Khan after failing in achievement of his self serving objectives by intimidation and maligning the national institutions had resorted to a conspiracy against the country just for the sake of becoming prime minister again, he further alleged and added that there were only two options for PTI to regain the power, either they table a no-confidence motion in assembly or wait for new elections which would be held in 2023.

He said that he was not issuing any sedition certificate but serving to anti-state elements and hurting national interests was an unpardonable crime and action must be taken in the regard.
