Former Pakistani Prime Minister Khan Will Speak At His First Rally After Being Shot

Former Pakistani Prime Minister Khan Will Speak At His First Rally After Being Shot

November 26, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Pakistan News


In his first public appearance since being shot earlier this month in an assassination attempt he blamed on his successor, the former Pakistani prime minister Imran Khan is anticipated to speak to tens of thousands of fans on Saturday.

“My nation will come to Rawalpindi for me.”

The shooting was the most recent development in several months of political unrest that started in April when Khan was removed from office following a vote of no confidence in parliament.
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), the party of Khan, has been urging the government to call an early election before the current parliamentary term expires in October of next year. Saturday’s demonstration is the culmination of this “long march.”

Khan was cited by PTI as stating in a morning tweet, “My life is under jeopardy and despite being injured I am heading to Rawalpindi for the nation.

On Saturday, there was a video going around of Khan’s assistants posing with his right leg in a blue cast that has since been removed.

The gathering will be held on a sizable open space between the nation’s capital, Islamabad, and the neighboring garrison city of Rawalpindi, which serves as the home of the country’s formidable military.

To stop Khan’s followers from marching on government buildings, authorities have deployed hundreds Pakistani security troops, barricaded highways with shipping containers, and erected a steel ring around Islamabad.

In May, rallies spearheaded by Khan descended into anarchy for 24 hours, with the capital blockaded and ongoing skirmishes between police and demonstrators across Pakistan.
The police vowed to handle forcefully with any PTI supporters who attempted to enter Islamabad this time.

Informed of potential security risks to the gathering, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah, who Khan alleges was engaged in the assassination plan, issued a “red alert” on Friday.

He mentioned Al Qaeda and the Taliban in Pakistan as two terrorist organizations that may threaten Khan, adding that “PTI still has the opportunity (to cancel).”

According to the authorities, the murder attempt was carried out by a lone gunman who is currently in jail. Police released a “confession” video in which the owner of the trash business admitted to acting because Khan was opposed to Islam.

However, Khan, a former international cricketer who had a playboy image before he married, claimed he had long warned the authorities that any attempt on his life would be blamed on a religious zealot.

Two days have passed since the government nominated a former spymaster as the next military leader, which brings us to Saturday’s gathering.

Khan appointed Munir as the Inter-Services Intelligence agency’s chief, but he left after just eight months due to a rumored falling out.

Since gaining independence in 1947, Pakistan’s military, the sixth-largest in the world, has launched at least three coups, taking power for more than three decades.

Khan has held many large-scale rallies around the nation since being removed from office, drawing sizable audiences.

The crowd on Saturday is anticipated to be the largest yet.

PTI supporters were arriving in convoys with vehicles bearing party flags from all over Pakistan.

Lt Gen Asim Munir Is Selected By PM Shehbaz To Be The New COAS

November 24, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Pakistan News


After days of rumours, the appointment of Lieutenant General Syed Asim Munir as the new army chief and Lieutenant General Sahir Shamshad Mirza as the new chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee (CJCSC) by Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif on Thursday put a stop to them.

Information Minister Maryam Aurangzeb made the statement in a Twitter, stating that President Alvi has received the summary.

Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif has chosen to nominate Lt. Gen. Sahir Shamshad Mirza as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Lt. Gen. Syed Asim Munir as Chief of the Army Staff using his constitutional authority.

According to the seniority list, the positions of chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Committee and army chief were up for grabs amongst Lt. Gen. Asim Munir, Lt. Gen. Sahir Shamshad Mirza, Lt. Gen. Azhar Abbas, Lt. Gen. Numan Mahmud, and Lt. Gen. Faiz Hameed.

The choice of the new army leader has reached its conclusion, according to confirmation from Defence Minister Khwaja Asif that “the advice has gone to President Alvi.”

The minister said, “Imran Khan now has to decide whether he wants to build the institution of homeland defence or make it contentious.

“President Alvi’s decision to heed constitutional and legal counsel as opposed to political advice will also be put to the test, he continued. He has a responsibility to safeguard the nation against political disputes as the Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces “.

The defence minister had made a casual comment to reporters on Wednesday outside the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) that the new army chief might be chosen before PM Shehbaz leaves for a trip to Turkey on November 25.

Lt Gen Syed Asim Munir has a range of military expertise. He was Gujranwala’s Corps Commander. He served from October 2018 to June 2019 as the DG ISI as well. Many people were surprised by his brief tenure as the leading spy agency’s director.

It was reported at the time that the prime minister at the time, Imran Khan, was not pleased with him because he was thought to have alerted him to his wife’s alleged involvement in corruption. Gen Asim’s determination to follow the rules was also believed to have irritated Imran.

Gen. Asim was the DG of Military Intelligence as well. He is seen as the front-runner since the government has said that seniority would this time be given priority in choosing a new leader.

On the list of seniority, Lt Gen Sahir Shamshad Mirza is ranked second. He is Rawalpindi’s Corps Commander. He also held the important position of Chief of General Staff (CGS), which was once held by the majority of army chiefs.

Due to his dual leadership of the operational and intelligence directorates in the army, CGS is referred to as the de facto army chief. To put it simply, every file in the army passes through his desk.

Imran Khan, the leader of the PTI, stated on Wednesday that President Arif Alvi was in touch with him and would speak with him on the choice of a new army commander because he was the party leader.

He said that since I am the leader of the party, the president may speak with me if the prime minister can communicate with a “absconder” (a reference to PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif).

However, “the president and I have decided that we will play with this within the law and do whatever is in law and the Constitution,” Imran said in an interview on a private news channel. “The president will absolutely discuss the matter with me,” he continued, adding that he was unaware of who they would appoint.

In The Midst Of Political Unrest, Pakistan’s PM Will Appoint A New Army Commander

In The Midst Of Political Unrest, Pakistan’s PM Will Appoint A New Army Commander

November 24, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Pakistan News


Despite current political unrest in the nation, Pakistani Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif is prepared to pick a new army commander after obtaining a list of applicants for the crucial role, authorities said on Wednesday.

For half of Pakistan’s 75-year existence, the army has dominated the nation and possessed significant political power.

The most recent action put an end to days of rumour regarding a impasse between Sharif’s coalition government and the military over Gen. Qamar Javed Bajwa’s replacement, who is retiring early next week. Imran Khan, the former prime minister, had decided to extend his term due to rising hostilities with India, Pakistan’s neighbor.

Khan was deposed by Sharif in April following a no-confidence vote in Parliament, but tensions surrounded Bajwa’s position after the army chief was accused by Khan of working with the United States to oust his government. This accusation has been repeatedly refuted by Washington, Sharif, and the military.

Outgoing army leader Bajwa addressed the “false narrative” of Khan’s accusations in a televised speech, although he avoided mentioning the former premier.

“Would we be seated in silence if there was a foreign conspiracy? It would be a serious offence, he added.

Keep in mind that there is a limit to patience, Bajwa said, adding that the military had so far displayed restraint. This appeared to be a warning to Khan.

The statements made by the army chief elicited no instant response from Khan’s party. At least one meeting between the former premier and Bajwa was arranged by Pakistani President Arif Alvi in the nation’s capital, Islamabad, in an effort to bring the two people together.

Earlier on Wednesday, the Defense Ministry, which had already received the initial list of applicants, informed Sharif’s office through Twitter that it had received a synopsis of the contenders for the position of new army chief. Additionally, the military tweeted that six senior generals had been proposed.

Sharif has been under pressure to retire from Khan. After beginning a protest march from the eastern city of Lahore on October 28, the former cricket star survived an attempted murder this month that left one bystander dead and 13 others injured.

Sharif and Khan’s acrimonious political dispute breaks out as Pakistan attempts to recover from last summer’s devastating floods. Following the record-breaking floods that claimed 1,739 lives and affected 33 million, thousands of people are still living in temporary housing.

The names of the proposed generals for the top army position have not yet been made public by the military, the government, or both. The six most senior generals serving in Pakistan are Lt. Gens. Asim Munir, Sahir Shamshad Mirza, Azhar Abbas, Nauman Mehmood, Faiz Hamid, and Mohammad Amir.

The coalition government has rejected Khan’s proposal for Sharif to call early polls, stating that the next parliamentary election would take place in 2023 as scheduled. At the same time as Bajwa is retiring, Khan is urging Sharif to do so. In 2016, Bajwa was appointed army chief, and Khan prolonged his tenure by three years.

Gen. Asim Munir, a former spymaster, is regarded as one of the leading candidates for the top position. Any of the generals proposed by the military may be chosen by Sharif.

Imran Khan Assure That Long March Will Not Disturb England Tests

Imran Khan Assure That Long March Will Not Disturb England Tests

November 23, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Pakistan News


Imran Khan’s long march 2.0

  • Long march won’t interfere with England Tests, Imran promises
  • PTI requests approval for a sit-in in Faizabad on November 26.
  • Imran will resume his march on November 26 in Rawalpindi, with Islamabad being his last stop.
  • The gathering in Garrison City would take place around the

Imran Khan, the head of PTI, assured Christian Turner, the British High Commissioner to Pakistan, and Ramiz Raja, the head of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), that the upcoming long march would not interfere with the Test series between Pakistan and England, which will begin in Rawalpindi on December 1.

The PTI has declared that it will launch a protracted march against the current administration on November 26 from Rawalpindi.

Prior to this year’s T20 World Cup, England visited Pakistan after a lengthy absence of 17 years to play a seven-match T20 series, which the visitors won 4-3. The second part of the English Test team’s trip to Pakistan will include three Test matches at Rawalpindi (Dec. 1-5), Multan (Dec. 9-13), and Karachi (Dec 17-21).

In their combined discussion with Imran at his Zaman Park mansion, Turner and Ramiz discussed the significance of the England team’s visit to Pakistan and shared their worries about how the security of the visitors would be jeopardized in the event of political upheaval in the nation.

Imran, the captain of the 1992 World Cup-winning Pakistani team, was informed during the discussion that the aforementioned series was important for both nations’ cricket and needed to be free of any potential security-related issues.

Imran’s reaction was quite encouraging; he told Turner and Ramiz that his party members would not disrupt the Rawalpindi Test and emphasized that the English squad would not be in danger from his political campaign.

Imran is a fervent political rival of Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif, who is also PCB’s patron-in-chief, hence it is unclear if Ramiz went to Zaman Park after receiving approval from him.

It should be noted that Rawalpindi City is under the control of the PTI in Punjab. Therefore, the provincial government is directly responsible for setting up and maintaining security in the city.

To get assurances about the security required for the orderly conduct of the Test series, Ramiz and Christian still preferred to meet with the PTI chairman.

PTI Refutes Businessman’s Allegations That He Received Gifts From Toshakhana

PTI Refutes Businessman’s Allegations That He Received Gifts From Toshakhana

November 16, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Pakistan News


Leaders of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) went on the attack on Wednesday, attacking accusations made by a businessman residing in Dubai named Umar Farooq Zahoor that he had purchased the Toshakhana presents delivered to the ousted prime minister Imran Khan during his time in office.

The PTI leaders described Zahoor as a “wanted” and “notorious” individual.

A day earlier, Zahoor came to light and claimed that he had purchased some of the state gifts, including an expensive Graff wristwatch worth at least Rs2 billion, from Farah Gogi and Shahzad Akbar. This is when the accusations of misuse of the Toshakhana (gift depository) against former prime minister Imran Khan took an unusual turn.

Zahoor said in an interview with a private TV network that he had paid $2 million for the pricey things that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman had given to the PTI leader.

He had also claimed that Shahzad Akbar, the previous premier’s accountability adviser, had been in touch with him in 2019 to offer to sell him watches, rings, and other presents. He said that he also has proof to support the assertions he was making.

The businessman continued to claim that after he failed to comply with the requests of his ex-wife Sophia Mirza, he was thereafter subjected to blackmail and fictitious money laundering charges were filed against him by the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) under Akbar’s direction.

He said that Farah Khan “brought the gifts to my office in Dubai and informed me that the goods had been handed to Imran Khan by the Saudi crown prince,” adding that he was persuaded to purchase them after he confirmed through his sources.

In a news conference, PTI leaders Fawad Chaudhry, Shireen Mazari, and Zulfi Bukhari refuted Zahoor’s allegations and said that the PTI leader was innocent of any wrongdoing.

The PTI has always opposed corruption in Pakistan, according to Fawad. He remarked, “We hold ourselves and others accountable just as equally.

He acknowledged that when Imran Khan visited Saudi Arabia for the first time in 2018, the King gave him a watch.

The chief of protocol receives the presents; the prime minister has no involvement in these affairs, according to Fawad. He said, “The pricing of these presents are then decided by the Toshakhana, which regularly submits them to the concerned Prime Minister’s Office with it being clearly stated what the worth of each item is.

This law had existed before to the PTI government’s mandate, according to Fawad. In actuality, the state was originally only to receive 20% of the purchase price, but our government increased that to 50% so that the national treasury would benefit.

Fawad stated that the chief protocol of the Foreign Office had received the watch. He said, “This present was deposited in the repository of the Cabinet Division by the same official.

Imran later sold the gift for Rs57 million “in the Pakistani market,” according to Fawad, who also noted that capital gain tax was paid for that appropriately, as mentioned in Imran Khan’s tax returns and as declared to the Election Commission.

“The evaluation of the watch set by the Cabinet Division had roughly been Rs 0.1 billion, and 20% of that price was paid whereby this gift became Imran Khan’s personal possession,” he said.

The watch “was not sold to Umar Farooq Zahoor,” according to Fawad, and “Farah Bibi had nothing to do with the affair.” The former minister continued by saying that the party will sue the businessman in England.

Zulfi Bukhari further stated that the watch had been purchased by a “dealer,” who “subsequently sold the set to someone else, possibly to the said person, for Rs61 million,” according to my sources.

Additionally, he stated that the “dealer is currently out of the country and on the run,” but he also made the assurance that “the lie will be unearthed” and that the “dealer will be brought before everyone.”

Police Finally Register FIR Over Attack On Former Prime Minister Imran Khan

Police Finally Register FIR Over Attack On Former Prime Minister Imran Khan

November 8, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Pakistan News


The Punjab police finally filed a case under terrorism charges, with detained suspect Naveed being named as the primary accused, after the Supreme Court threatened to launch suo motu proceedings if the provincial police failed to file a FIR regarding the attempted assassination of former prime minister Imran Khan.

After a delay of three days, the FIR filed in response to Sub-Inspector Amir Shahzad’s complaint at 11:10 p.m. on Monday under Section 7 of the Anti-Terrorism Act and Sections 302, 324, and 440 of the Pakistan Penal Code was registered.

  • Despite PTI’s request, senior government and military figures were not named in the case
  • For the delay in filing a FIR, the IG blames CM Elahi, while Moonis accuses “unknown individuals” and the police.

Even though the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) claimed that a plot to kill him involved the Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, the Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah, and a top intelligence official named Major General Faisal Naseer, the names of any of these individuals were not mentioned in the FIR.

The prominent military and government officials were named in an application for the registration of the lawsuit that PTI leader Zubair Khan Niazi submitted.

The applicant and the police personnel reportedly fought over creating an e-tag for the application during the events that took place prior to the registration of the case. Dawn was informed of the situation by a police officer, who added that the staff declined to give the e-tag until they had a copy of the application and all it included.

The official stated that the applicant was reluctant to leave it at the police station’s front desk because his political party’s leadership wished to keep the information in the application confidential owing to the sensitivity of the situation. Until the police filed the FIR in response to a sub-complaint, inspector’s the problem remained unaddressed, he noted.

The Gujrat district police officer (DPO) filed the case after IGP Faisal Shahkar instructed him to do so in accordance with the Supreme Court’s instructions so that a copy of the FIR may be provided to the SC today. Additionally, he informed the DPO about Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial’s directive to register the case within 24 hours.

The Supreme Court took issue with the FIR’s tardy registration earlier in the day and ordered the IGP to file the case within 24 hours if he didn’t want to be subject to suo motu proceedings.

These comments were made by the supreme court during a contempt case brought against the PTI chairman due to the violence on May 25 and the purported PTI violation of an undertaking provided to the court.

Nevertheless, the court issued orders following the hearings about a number of matters, including the attempted murder of Imran Khan, allegations of political meddling in the Punjab police, the Azam Swati case, and the murder investigation involving Arshad Sharif.

In response to the CJ’s comment on the delay in filing the FIR, Mr. Raja stated that he had been informed that the pertinent police station was apprehensive. According to CJP, “No FIR equals no inquiry,” and because of the delay, even the evidence could be changed.

Punjab IG Shahkar, who joined the discussion via video connection from Lahore, explained the delay and stated that, according to the pertinent district police officer (DPO), the police had not yet received a formal complaint. The Chief Minister Parvez Elahi, with whom the IG claimed to have also spoken, had “some misgivings about the content of the FIR,” according to the IG.

The provincial administration has opinions on the topic, but such opinions cannot supersede those of the police, according to the CJP, who also said that regardless of the outcome, the inquiry must continue. The court would back the police in all proper steps, CJ Bandial added, adding that “we will take interest and ensure that this is done.”

The CJP noted that although the government operates independently, no one would be permitted to meddle with police operations either. He warned the IG that “if someone interferes in his job, the court would meddle in their work.” While delaying further proceedings for a week, Justice Bandial instructed the police head to also review the medical findings.

Imran Khan Injured As Man Opens Fire Near PTI Reception Camp

Imran Khan Injured As Man Opens Fire Near PTI Reception Camp

November 3, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Pakistan News


Imran Khan, the chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, was driven away in a bulletproof car after a gunman opened fire at his container in Gujranwala.

Imran Khan, the chairman of the PTI, was shot by a guy in Gujranwala, close to the party’s welcome camp, injuring him and alarming the adjacent long march participants.

According to Geo News, the former prime minister suffered injuries to his leg and was taken to a hospital for treatment; however, the hospital’s location remains unclear due to security concerns.

A large anti-government march is being led by the PTI chairman in the direction of Islamabad. He had stated that the protest march will continue for a further 10 months until the election date was established.

The objective was to be at the federal capital by November 4 prior to this announcement. Later, it was changed to November 8–9, and then again, to November 11. Fawad Chaudhry, the head of the PTI, then said that the party will keep altering the dates in order to “wear the administration out.”

Since he was removed from office earlier this year by a resolution of no-confidence, the PTI chair is on his second march toward Islamabad.

Economic uncertainty in Pakistan has been exacerbated by political instability, with foreign rating agencies doubting the ability of the present administration to continue challenging economic policies in the face of political pressure and impending elections.

Imran Advises PTI Supporters To Suspend Protest & Get Ready For Long March

Imran Advises PTI Supporters To Suspend Protest & Get Ready For Long March

October 22, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Pakistan News


Imran Khan, the chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI), urged his followers on Friday to end the nationwide demonstrations over the ECP’s decision to disqualify him in the Toshakhana reference.

The leader of the PTI blasted the ruling coalition for seeking to “silence” him in a pre-recorded address that was shown on TV. Additionally, he claimed that he had predicted the outcome and accused the chief election commissioner of prejudice.

At the conclusion of his speech, he changed his tone and urged his followers to halt the nationwide demonstrations.

Imran declared: “I am urging the protestors to halt their demonstrations because people are in hardship.” He then vowed to battle these “thieves” till the end of time.

He also asked his fans to prepare for the lengthy march of the party. “I had stated that I would host a lengthy march by the month’s end. I’ll stage the largest demonstration. I shall keep pushing for true freedom until the rule of law is achieved.

Pakistan, according to Imran, is at a turning point. Allah desires that we stand up to these robbers. Before we get ready to fight them, we can’t get rid of these robbers.

He said that he will issue the call for the long march as he concluded his speech.

Imran made his comments after PTI supporters protested the election watchdog’s decision to dismiss the former premier in key cities throughout the nation.

PTI members and supporters gathered in huge numbers in Islamabad at the Faizabad Interchange, where police used tear gas to stop the demonstrators from proceeding in that direction.

The workers stopped traffic on the artery by blocking the main route and torching tyres.

Several hundred demonstrators attempted to block a crucial entrance to Islamabad, but were repelled with tear gas, according Pakistani police spokesman Sohail Khan.

He said that the demonstrators tried unsuccessfully to block other highways in the city as well as attack police with stones, wounding three officers.

The highway from Faizabad to Islamabad has been unblocked, according to a later report from the Islamabad police. According to the police, the route from Islamabad would also be unblocked shortly. They also noted that some locals were obstructing traffic by lighting trees on fire.

The growing number of protestors caused traffic on the street to get backed up. Police also used water cannons to disperse the crowd because of the impending violence.

Ali Haider Zaidi and other party officials could be seen participating in what was described as a “calm demonstration” in images posted by the party’s official Twitter account.
