Imran Khan’s latest indictment on Pak’s new prime minister

Pakistan: Imran Khan vowed to further expose the Sharif family.


Pakistan’s deposed prime minister Imran Khan alleged that the Sharif family “paid a woman” – a thinly veiled reference to his ex-wife Reham Khan – to write a book against him during the 2018 general election, stating that ” Mafia” is once again attempting to assassinate his character and may release something after Eid, a media report said on Saturday.

Imran Khan referred to the book indirectly for the first time since its publication in 2018 at a public meeting in Multan, Punjab province, on Friday.

The former premier also spoke about his first wife Jemima Goldsmith and said the UK-born TV personality had to go through legal proceedings and face allegations of being a member of the Jewish lobby of the “Sharif mafia”.

“It’s the people who paid a woman to write a book against me in the 2018 election. They go once again for my character assassination after Eid. I have a message for them… I will fight them as long as I’m alive,” he told The Express Tribune.

The book titled ‘Reham Khan’ is a controversial 2018 memoir written by Reham, a famous Pakistani British journalist, filmmaker and author.

Imran Khan also accused Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif of ordering the most meetings during his tenure as Punjab’s chief minister and promised he would continue to speak out against the “mafias”.

He said Sharifs ran an entire campaign against Jemima, painting her as part of the Jewish lobby.

Imran Khan said Jemima was also booked in a fake tile-related case and had to face the courts for a year, despite the fact that forensic testing made it clear the tiles were not antique, the report said.

Since his removal from the post of prime minister, Khan has sought public support against the “foreign conspiracy” and for the holding of new elections in the country.

During his speech, while urging people to support his narrative against what he calls “imported government”, Khan said he would try to rally two million people in Islamabad to demand new elections in the country as soon as possible.

To an accused crowd, he also promised to further expose the Sharif family by issuing a “White Paper” on their corruption cases.

He claimed that foreign powers had “imposed” corrupt rulers just because it was easier for them to control them.

Khan’s Pakistani Tehreek-e-Insaf party held protest rallies across the country on April 10, a day after he lost a vote of no confidence. Since then, Khan has attended rallies in several cities, including Karachi, Lahore and Peshawar.

Khan on Saturday announced an approximate timeframe for his planned long march to Islamabad, issuing a call for the last week of May without mentioning the exact date, Dawn reported.

“This call is for all of Pakistan – not just the PTI,” he said in a video message released by his PTI party.

“I want to give a message to all of Pakistan to start preparing from now. The beginning of our preparation will be chaand raat (Eid eve) and I want to specifically say to young people that you should go out with flags and tell everyone that the Pakistani nation is alive,” he said.
