Urging the prime minister to ‘come clean on the Panama Papers revelations’, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has announced to march towards Raiwind – Nawaz Sharif’s private residence – on September 24.

“Inshallah, on Sept 24 I will bring people from across Pakistan to Raiwind,” he said while addressing a party rally in Karachi’s Nishtar Park on Tuesday. “I am inviting the entire nation to participate in the march.”

The PTI chairman said the premier had destroyed the institutions and will never allow institutional reforms.

Imran accuses ruling party of political trickery

Leaked documents from the Mossack Fonseca law firm in Panama last month showed several world leaders including the premier’s three children – sons, Hassan and Hussain, and his daughter, Maryam – owning at least three offshore holding companies registered in the British Virgin Islands.

Imran said the National Assembly speaker could not save the prime minister from his movement against corruption. “The speaker who grabbed his seat by rigging the elections twice cannot save Nawaz Sharif now,” he said.

PM destroying key institutions to hide corruption: Imran Khan

After Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) chief Altaf Hussain delivered his anti-Pakistan speech, Imran said, he decided to show strength in Karachi.

“I want to tell Muhajirs [immigarnts]… they don’t have to prove their loyalties towards Pakistan, and [that they] are ready to sacrifice their lives for the country,” he said.

Criticising Altaf, the PTI chairman said the MQM chief was responsible for introducing terrorism in the country.

“Altaf said in his speech that Pakistan was a centre of terrorism. I want to tell him [Altaf] that it was he who introduced terrorism and imposed fear in the city.”

    People of Pakistan should some self respect and join Khan. Seems like he is the only who cares about the future generations of Pakistan. Enough of this Sharif family slavery. May Allah bless Imran KhanRecommend

    @Ali Zeb Khan: The way to show self respect for your country and yourself is to work within the system and not try to destabilize the country. Those who have self respect should ignore Imran Khan and Tahirul Qadri.I am tired of Imran Khan’s rants and attempts to stop development in Pakistan. There is a place for political differences which is parliament. How long has Pakistan had democracy Give it a chance and if you hate the Sharifs, work to have them voted out in the next elections by convincing people and improving things in KPK where his party has provincial rule. Stop dharna madness which is typical 3 rd World behavior like in Arab countries which are all unstable.Recommend

    Imran Khan should first look at his right and left. He will find Jahangir Tareen and Aleem Khan standing there. I know it is hard to make your financiers accountable but both have offshore companies registered in Panama. Would not you call it hypocrisy to question others, when Imran Khan had been operating an offshore company of his own since 1983?Recommend

    Imran Khan is tired of politics and his sponsors are tired of spending money on useless rallies. This adventure will end his politics forever. Recommend

    This guy is so stupid lol left behind his luxurious life for these uneducated dumb people. Why are you doing this for? These idiots will never understand your true value. If you were in any other country you would have had hundreds of award’s foe your social work. Leave them in slavery and come back to U.K.Recommend

    @Sceptic:All those who are blamed be honest enough to go to SC and let the Court start proceedings and clear or convict them. The entire process should take maximum 30 days. After that SC take Nawaz family and Zardari clan and all those who are leaked Recommend

    @Jordan: Have you forgotten that this guy’s kids and his two ex wives live in the UK where he travels often. Have you also forgot that Imran Khan preferred to support his ex brother in law Mr. Goldsmith instead of supporting Sadiq Khan in the London mayoral elections. Imagine if he tried his dharna style politics in the UK and tried to remove an elected PM by mass street protests. By all means let him try all this in the UK and make sure his followers make a public nuisance of themselves by blocking roads, not paying toll taxes and leaving heaps of garbage. Do you think he can get away with all this in the UK? After all Imran Khan set up an off shore account to avoid paying taxes in the UK so idiots like me don;t understand his true value. My problem with Imran Khan ( mind you I am a former PTI member) is that he should work in KPK, complain in parliament and look at the big picture which is the development of a democratic culture which takes a few cycles of maturity – not create anarchy and demand overnight power.Recommend
