LAHORE/ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan Tuesday shared his old video clip recorded on March 22 on his twitter handle and claimed that he had forewarned about a plan to provoke the party workers into retaliation to pave the ground to carry out Model Town like bloodshed.
Imran Khan stated that after an attempted assassination on him in the Islamabad judicial complex on March 18, he had consistently told his party workers that whatever the provocation they must only do peaceful protests.
“InshAllah whenever there is an independent inquiry I will prove that those who had guns and those who committed arson were planted amongst the demonstrators just as they were going to do in the plan I uncovered here in this video message,” he said. In a recorded video, PTI Chairman disclosed that notorious plan, wherein he clearly told his workers that another plan was hatched to carry out bloodbath but they should exercise restraints and remain peaceful come what may.
Imran Khan said: “I am telling all of you know and I am bringing it to the notice of our judiciary that they have made another plan to kill me.” “I am especially alarming the Punjab Police that IG Punjab and IG Islamabad, backed by the handlers, have devised another plan to carry out an operation outside Zaman Park, either today or tomorrow,” he warned.
The PTI chairman told the policemen that they had formed two squads one had been chosen by IG Islamabad the other one by the IG Punjab but what they would do was pretend to be part of our people gathered daily outside Zaman Park in great numbers.
He said that they would fire while standing within the crowd to assassinate four to five police personnel, resultantly they would then counter attack and fired bullets to kill PTI people in a model town type massacre.
The PTI chairman revealed that afterwards, they would proceed further to attack his house to assassinate him in a manner Murtaza Bhutto was killed, adding that this was their plan which they would execute either today or tomorrow.
Imran Khan stated that they had made several other plans to harm him which somehow failed now out of frustration they were resorting to extremely dangerous plans. Imran Khan said that he wanted to tell everyone about this plan today and even he wanted to alarm Punjab police against the possible murder of their five personnel just to make a ground to attack him. However, the PTI Chairman said: “I want to instruct my workers once again we would never become a part of any conflict and we will not react, no matter what they do.”
“This time we will retaliate, as I have shown you the video where the policemen are pelting stones at us to incite and infuriate us,” he added.
Imran Khan went on to say: “This time if they try to incite you, you should not react in any way and let the police come to me if they want to talk, direct them to me as I have been given bail in all cases so they do not have any reason to arrest me.” However, the PTI chairman stated that even if they had a new warrant, let them come to him if it was needed, he would prefer to go to jail but he will not let bloodbath of his people.
Therefore, he advised: “I am again telling my workers not to indulge in any conflict but I am putting this forth before my nation.” Also, Imran Khan came down hard on the government for replicating the Changiz Khan’s style of governance to unleash a wave of barbarism and tyranny to spread terror and fear in order to enslave the people.
In a video message on Tuesday, the PTI Chairman said that the fascist government crossed all limits of barbarity, as people standing on road sides were picked up and put in jails without any reason.
Imran Khan said that whenever Changiz Khan conquered a city, he unleashed a bloodbath and massacre and only left a handful people alive so as they could tell the people the tales of his barbarity and terrorism.
The PTI Chairman said that as a result, the people were so terrified that all the cities accepted their defeat beforehand without any resistance.
Imran Khan went on to say that Pakistan was also currently going through the same situation today, as stories of cruelty were being run on TV channels, adding that people’s houses were being demolished and videos were being made which were being played on social media and TV channels to deter people.
He said that there has never been any such oppression on women, the way they were being subjected to desecration and oppression in Pakistan now-a-days, adding that people standing on the streets and roads were being detained and abducted and put them in jails.
The PTI Chairman reminded that all these kinds of terror and fear were being spread so that people could be terrified and petrified so as no one dared to come out to raise voice against these tyrannies.
Imran Khan stated that all these atrocities were being done to enslave the people; therefore he urged the people of Pakistan to stand up against this fascism to reclaim their real freedom.
The PTI chairman made it clear that they would have to render sacrifices for attaining ‘Haqeeqi Azadi’. However, he stated that once the people decided that they would not tolerate this cruelty and would uphold the supremacy of the law and constitution.
Imran Khan said that when the people decided that they wanted free, fair and transparent elections in a constitutional manner and elected representatives and would not tolerate the rule of thieves anymore, then they would be free in the true sense. The PTI chairman urged people to break the idols of fear and whenever there was a call for protest, they should leave their homes to hold peaceful protests not violent protests for their fundamental and constitutional rights to reclaim real freedom, as no one can stand in front of 23 crore of people.
The opposition Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Tuesday reiterated its demand for the constitution of a “powerful” judicial commission consisting of Supreme Court judges to probe into May 9 incidents of arson and vandalism of civil and military installations.
It further said that some irrefutable evidence was available with it to establish that armed miscreants had entered into the “peaceful” gatherings, who indulged into attacking and firing on the protestors leaving dozens killed and hundreds injured.
The party of former prime minister Imran Khan gave these remarks in a statement in response to the other day’s special Corps Commanders Conference (CCC), which decided that all arsonists involved in heinous crime against military installations would be tried under Pakistan Army Act and Official Secrets Act.
“PTI acknowledges the importance of the statement issued upon conclusion of the Special Corps Commanders Conference held at GHQ (General Headquarters) and considers the impression of a well-thought-out plan of promoting violence and mayhem engulfing several government buildings, military structures and hundreds of unarmed and peaceful citizens.”
The statement reads that as a responsible and the largest political institution in the federation of Pakistan, PTI has an unwavering commitment to the constitution and democracy. The party believes that the constitution is a beacon of light for all of us at individual as well as collective levels and solutions to the most intricate problems lie within the ambit of constitution and bounds of laws, it added.
The party explained that peaceful protest after Chairman PTI Imran Khan’s arrest through paramilitary troops of Rangers from within the premises of Islamabad High Court on May 9, was a natural and foreseeable reaction guaranteed by the constitution as a basic right to peaceful protest to the public.
Besides an assassination attempt on his life in Wazirabad and through the peaceful, and constitutional struggle by Khan spanning across almost three decades, this was the incident of its own nature where general public along with political workers have been targeted through live bullets to incite confrontation between the largest political force in the country and the armed forces of Pakistan, the statement also said.
“PTI believes that identification of elements involved in such unusual incidents of violence and chaos through a credible investigation is inevitable.”
The opposition party further said that party chief Khan in his address to the nation after his release from the custody of National Accountability Bureau (NAB) had proposed the constitution of a powerful judicial commission consisting of SC Judges. “We have ample amount of evidence to present to any independent inquiry that the arson and in some places, shootings were done by agencies men who wanted to cause mayhem and blame it on PTI so the current crackdown would be justified.” PTI believes converging the roles of ‘Judge, Jury & Executioner’ in one person or the institution not only contradicts the basic principle of justice but negatively impacts an overall scheme of administration of justice and has no space and scope in a civilized, democratic and constitutional order, the statement says.
“PTI acknowledges the significance of national consensus over national issues and believes that the acceptance and backing by the public are the fundamental determinants of the acceptance and acceptability of a political party.”
The PTI strongly believes that the right to rule belongs to the people who are privileged and authorized to undertake national policy and decision making through their elected representatives, it underlined.
“Contrary to the will of people, and beyond the ambit of law and constitution, a consensus of any kind among undemocratic or inorganic political groups adds to the instability and uncertainty only.”
It is critical that right to decision making should be routed back to the people of Pakistan through instantly held free, fair and credible elections so that the future of the nation is anchored upon harmony instead of lasting confrontation, the statement concluded.
