As the PTI is reduced to Imran’s level of tawdry politics , there comes a crunch question to the fore: Who does Imran consider a rival? PDM or the State?
Imran’s narrative is a jumble of falsification and gusher off allegations. We are now so inured to follies of the gentleman that one has to add extra effort in order to believe the hubristic and egoistic narrative of Khan.
Ik is not going against its political rivals. He is going against the economy and perhaps against the state on one pretext or the other.
Yesterday we were told that Mr. Khan is actually working hard to get HAQEEQI AZADEE from US and now Imran’s team is begging the same US to interfere in the domestic affairs of Pakistan. He is not only inviting foreign influence into our domestic affairs ; he is actually threatening the interests of the state by doing so.
If you ask international powers to squeeze Pakistan economically on the pretext of Human Rights you are actually waging war against the economic interests of the state. Still smouldering ashes of PTI triggered violence have given birth to phoenix of follies.
No political party should go to that extent. PTI is literally playing with the state’s future. This is not politics. This is mutiny plus. Placing the state at gunpoint misusing the sentiments of naïve overseas cadre is the worst thing a political leader cant imagine. Imran is kept hostage to his power hungry ambitions. If he is not in the power he is ready to go to any extent. It seems, for him his personal interests are more sacred than the state.
The only silver lining is that the state has finally come out of its deep slumber. The country is hurtling down a deep slope and a strict application of law is much needed. No one is above the law. No one should be.
