Islamabad, October 2
Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has lashed out at the fiery speeches made by former premier and PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif, stating that he was playing a dangerous game by targeting Islamabad’s powerful military establishment at the behest of India. In an interview to a private television channel, Khan accused his predecessor for creating a “huge mischief” by attacking the Pakistan Army.
“Nawaz Sharif is playing a dangerous game against Pakistan and I am 100 per cent sure that India is supporting him,” he said.
“Sharif is now playing the same game that was once being played by former founder of the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) Altaf Hussain, who he said was also working on India’s agenda. He is becoming the next Altaf Hussain,” Khan said. “India’s interest was to weaken our army. India’s think tanks say they want to break Pakistan. Some foolish liberals were agreeing with the narrative of Sharif, who is creating a huge ‘fitna’ (mischief) by attacking the army,” he added. — IANS
