- PTI chief warns PM Modi against use of brute force in held Kashmir
- Says PTI workers won’t tolerate if Gullu Butts of ruling PML-N attack participants of Raiwind march
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Friday said all political parties stood united on the Kashmir issue despite their political differences, and warned Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi of consequences of the use of brute force in held Kashmir.
“When nations decide to become free, tanks and guns cannot stop them,” Khan said while addressing a public meeting in Taxila.
He said the entire Pakistani nation stood firm behind their armed forces.
Khan said it was impossible to enslave a nation through use of force, adding that “had it been possible to enslave a nation with the help of force, the US would have enslaved Afghanistan by now”.
The PTI chief said that the prosperity of a country lied in the strength of its institutions while corruption had the power to ruin any institution. “When there is corruption, investor moves to Bangladesh from Pakistan,” he said, adding that a resourceful person in Pakistan could do anything.
Criticising the prime minister, Khan said Nawaz Sharif had been caught red-handed in the Panama Leaks case, but the Supreme Court termed PTI’s petition against him as “frivolous”. We are unable to get justice from the state institutions,” he added.
The PTI chief said his party never caused any unrest in its 20-year history. Recalling that ‘Gullu Butts’ of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) had attacked his party’s caravan in Gujranwala during their 2014 march from police vans, Khan warned that if they did something similar on September 30, PTI workers wouldn’t tolerate it and would fight back.
He warned that the government would be held responsible if it tried to snatch the democratic right of opposition parties. “We will provide WhatsApp number to our workers. They can inform us if police stop them from joining our Raiwind march,” he said.
“We will not sit idle if government’s Gullu Butts resort to violence on September 30,” he said.
The PTI chief lamented investors were not coming to Pakistan because of corruption and therefore it was important to defeat the “king of corruption”.
