Campaign against government not political but jihad: Imran Khan


ISLAMABAD: PTI Chairman Imran Khan Monday termed his anti-government campaign a “jihad” and said it was not political, as he slammed the Sharifs for being a family of “liars”.In his address to party workers, the ousted prime minister who is campaigning for PTI’s Islamabad march claimed the government wants to arrest him but warned it that all “plans” against him would backfire. Khan said, “criminals” were sitting in the Parliament and wondered how would Pakistan progress if the “corrupt” people ruled the country. He claimed that India celebrated when the incumbent government came into power. “I have no properties outside, I will stay in Pakistan […] I will never want something which damages my country,” the PTI chairman said, slamming the government for “having an FIR registered” against him. Faisalabad police had last week registered a case against 150 people, including former prime minister Khan, for allegedly harassing and stopping Pakistani pilgrims from performing their rituals at Masjid-e-Nabawi (PBUH) earlier this week. But Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah clarified last Tuesday that the government did not have a first information report (FIR) registered against the PTI chairman. Moving on, the PTI chairman said his party only wanted one thing: early elections — which has been the PTI’s demand after their ousted as it has refused to accept the new government.
