KARACHI: According to reliable sources, Bahria Town CEO Malik Riaz Hussain has decided to disclose to the public facts regarding a mafia that has been blackmailing him for a long time.
In a statement he issued on Thursday, Riaz named Tariq Kamal, Khalid Rasheed and Dr Shafiq as members of this ‘organised group of conspirators’. He said this group was using the judiciary, media and other respectable institutions of the country for their nefarious designs and urged these institutions to ask themselves why they are allowing such elements to misuse them for personal aims.
According to sources, strong evidence against the group’s corrupt activities and blackmail, which includes documents and video recordings, will be made public by Riaz immediately after Eidul Fitr.
Meanwhile, Riaz, in his statement said he feels proud that he has always opted to make investments in Pakistan and has given precedence to national interest over his own personal gains. He thanked Allah Almighty, who he said has blessed him so that he can serve people and expressed his resolve to persist in his aim of making Pakistan a better place. He added that it is unfortunate that some elements have been blackmailing him and his organisation for the last five to six years.
Riaz also commended the Pakistan Army for its history of sacrifices for the country and said he has a lot of respect for the institution. The Bahria Town CEO said his organisation has been working on a joint project with the army. He added that he is proud of this association with the army and is always eager to work with it.
