ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Saturday demanded of the interim government to make public the report of Raja Zafarul Haq committee mandated to probe into the amendments in the constitutional clause pertaining to the Finality of the Holy Prophet (PBUH).
Addressing the Ulema Mashaikh Conference at Golra Sharif here, he also called for exemplary punishment to those who had been involved in amending the constitutional clause which dealt with the finality of the Prophethood.
Earlier on Saturday, PTI chief reached Golra Sharif to pay respect to the custodian of famous Golra shrine. He met with the custodian of shrine, Pir Nizamuddin Jami, who on the occasion assured his support to the PTI in next general elections.
He demanded the nation must be told that at whose behest this amendment was made and the conspirators should be exposed.
Imran said a host of challenges were confronted by Pakistan and it was need of the hour to forge unity among the people and steer the country out of the quagmire.
He urged the clerics to promote national unity to help cope with the crisis.
Hailing the accountability court’s decision, PTI chairman said that a powerful personality had been sentenced for the first time.
He said “In our country, powerful are beyond the control of institutions and only the poor are made accountable. The poor are detained, but influential and filthy rich roam free.”
Imran observed everyone was well aware that Nawaz Sharif was telling a lie and he made properties abroad worth billions of rupees in the name of their sons.
He wondered as to how some people were supporting a corrupt person despite knowing facts about his misdeeds.
“Sharif has to give accounts for Rs300 billion he had looted.”
He said the decision had proved that now no one would be spared the accountability, and the corrupt elements would have to face imprisonment.
Imran said corruption had badly damaged the country during the last three to four decades and its debt had jumped to Rs27,000 billion from Rs6,000 billion in just last five years.
The corrupt politicians concentrated only on personal gains of amassing maximum wealth, while country and people become poorer and poorer, he added.
“Today every Pakistani is indebted to international loans and this is because of the wrong practices of corrupt rulers.”
He said dollar exchange rate had also jumped to Rs125 due to money laundering and plundering of national wealth.
