Reference against Altaf sent to British govt: Rashid


Says Imran lacks confidence in courts and himself

Lahore—Federal Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Pervaiz Rashid has said Pakistan has sent reference against Altaf Hussain to British government and is hopeful Britain will do justice and will never permit this person to create unrest and bring him to justice according to their laws.
Talking to media after attending 16th Textile Asia International Expo he said Altaf is not a Pakistani citizen and rules of Britain will apply against him. He said media should ask Imran Khan if he has approached the Supreme Court then what’s the need of staging sit-in, adding that approaching Supreme Court means Imran has full confidence in the judges of the SC and if he has confidence then he should wait for SC decision instead of staging sit-in.
He said the government will accept the decision of Supreme Court, adding that Imran Khan should reply the question whether he will accept the verdict of the Supreme Court or not. He said Imran has no confidence in courts, roads and even he has no confidence in himself.
He said the quantum of Pakistani exports has increased but the value of the exports has decreased, adding that in whole world the prices of the commodities have been decreased. He said the world has given many facilities to Bangladesh during the last 20 or 30 years but Pakistan was deprived of these facilities due to Pervez Musharraf’s rule. He said the comparison should be made with 2013 and 2016, adding that 2018 will be more better than 2016 and 2020 will be better than 2018.
He said Altaf Hussain is a British citizen and has no Pakistani passport so we are in contact with the British government, adding that Pakistan has sent reference to British government saying that due to one provocative speech of Altaf in Karachi violent incidents occurred. One Pakistani was killed, one media house was attacked and vehicle of another media house was harmed and third media house was threatened, he said.—Sabah
