PTI opens up new pendora box against Nawaz Sharif


Pakistan Tehreek e Insaaf has announced to open a new pendora box against Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif in the old and infamous Asghar Khan case.

Relying on the ‘revelations’ made in certain interviews and a book, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) intends to open up a shady chapter in the country’s political history from late 1980s in an apparent bid to further malign Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif.

After expressing intentions to file a petition with the Supreme Court seeking implementation on the Asghar Khan case verdict, the PTI on Monday announced it would also approach the apex court against the PM for allegedly taking money from al-Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden in the name of Jihad – a money, which, its claims, was later utilised in 1989 to conspire against Benazir Bhutto’s government.

PTI spokesperson Fawad Chaudhry said he would file within the ongoing week a petition in the Supreme Court seeking admission of a case against Prime Minister Sharif for “taking funds from a foreign individual to destabilise and conspire against democracy in Pakistan”.
