ISLAMABAD- Arsalan Iftikhar, son of former Chief Justice Iftikhar Chaudhry, today pledged to contact the religious scholars against Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman, Imran Khan. Claiming that
Imran was not righteous and honest (Sadiq and Amin), he demanded that the committee comprising Justice (R) Wajihuddin Ahmed should hand down a judgment against him.
According to reports, Arsalan Iftikhar will contact Maulana Siraj-ul-Haq, member of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Assembly and Maulana Shirani of the Islamic Ideology Council to bring to the fore the issue of Imran Khan’s alleged love child Tyrian White. The religious scholars will decide if a person like Imran Khan can be the member of Shura Council, said Arsalan Iftikhar. He has demanded a decision from Justice Wajihuddin on whether Imran Khan meets the criteria set out in the Article number 62 and 62 of the constitution.
Imran Khan has always maintained silence on questions about his alleged love child Tyrian White and the 1997 US court judgment. In his several interviews, he has denied commenting on his personal life. However, the media in 2004 reported that after the sudden death of Sita White, Tyrian’s mother, Khan was ready to look after his alleged daughter and these reports in turn were not refuted by Khan. Though the case of Tyrian is now a thing of past for the politicians, it’s the only ploy for Arsalan Ifikhar against
Imran Khan. He has started gathering documents against Khan including a few affidavits.
Arsalan Iftikhar, on Wednesday filed another application at Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) to obtain more information about Imran Khan. In the application, Arsalan Iftikhar submitted the attested copies of references against Imran Khan submitted by Dr Farooq Sattar and Dr Sher Afghan Niazi, Imran Khan’s written statement and relevant documents provided to him. He also requested the ruling of Speaker National Assembly and Election Commission’s order over reference against Imran Khan. Arsalan requested access to the said documents as per the article 19 of the constitution. Khan had been accusing ex-CJP Iftikhar Muhammad Chaudhry of his involvement in the alleged rigging of May 2013 general elections.
