ISLAMABAD: The spokesperson of Jamiat Ulema Islam Jan Achakzai has said that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s decision to launch a protest on May 11 is aimed at undermining democratic system at the behest of lobbies that have already “tasked Tahirul Qadri with the same goal”.
In a statement on Sunday, Achakzai said that PTI has joined hands with the anti-democratic forces like Tahirul Qadri to derail the system and is attempting to sneak into power through backdoors. “Why did he accept the results of May 2013 elections when he was fouled in the Punjab elections, (according to his claim)? Is it not because he wanted to enjoy the power in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa?” asked Achakzai.
He said, “Imran Khan has support of some powerful lobbies of the West, this is why on a wink, he jumped into the fray by announcing protest campaign from May 11.” He suspected that Imran and Qadri would soon join a single platform to destabilise the democratic system and create an environment for undemocratic forces to benefit. About Imran’s statement on Geo group, he asked why Imran did not criticise Geo “when it attacked the Ideology of Pakistan, undermined the concept of Khatam-e-Nabowat, promoted vulgar culture in the country and maligned parliament and politicians”.
“Why this sudden awakening of Imran Khan’s conscience after Hamid Mir episode, unless he has been winked to issue such statements?” he asked. He said that Imran has no commitment to democracy as he is himself a major beneficiary of May 11 rigged elections. He added that the PTI chief is simply making his outside patrons happy and trying to sneak into power through backdoors. “But the democratic forces would not allow his dream to come true,” he added.
