ISLAMABAD: Former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan said on Friday that the country is occupied by thieves and crooks who were getting clean chit in cases.
Addressing a students’ convention on Friday, he said that the fight for “Haqiqi Azadi” is for the future of next generation and a nation cannot progress where there is no rule of law.
The PTI chairman while urging the people to fight for “Haqiqi Azadi” said that slaves can only become good slaves and only free nations ascend.
Imran Khan has said that the cases of the rulers are being ended turn by turn. He said that the rulers first formulate a law and then annul their cases.
Imran Khan has decried how recent amendments made to the country’s accountability laws were allowing the government to systematically close corruption cases against their leaders and for them to return to Pakistan without fear of prosecution for alleged graft. At this rate, he suggested letting all those criminals currently incarcerated in prisons go.
Claiming that he was devastated after seeing the treatment people had been receiving in Pakistan, he noted that only in a society where there is no justice that people are treated worse than animals. “A society which has no justice, people there falls even below than animals,” he said.
“Everyone will have to come out for the movement for real freedom. The movement for freedom will be successful soon if youths and women will participate in it,” he maintained.
The PTI chairman was of the view that the struggle for real freedom is a Jihad, not real freedom. “Unluckily, the NRO II is being implemented. The NAB and the accused are hiding the national wealth jointly,” he added.
He said that 80 percent women are not getting their rights. “There is the worst slavery in the interior Sindh. How can progress be made if the thieves are at the helm?. Today Pakistan is at a critical juncture,” he added.
Imran said that that in Pakistan those who committed a smaller crime are in jail; however those who are guilty of major crimes but are powerful are currently comfortable in the power corridors.
He gave example of Holy Prophet (PBUH) and how he set the rules for justice in Islam. Teachings and principles of the Prophet (PBUH) are guidance for us to follow, he urged.
Addressing the women, he said that this was a decisive time for the country and urged them to go door-to-door and spread the message of freedom and make Pakistan independent from corrupt governance.
He concluded by reiterating that soon be will give the call for his “Haqeeqi Azaadi Tehreek’’ and called on everyone to participate. TF REPORT
