Shiekh Rashid makes stunning claims about his forced interview
Former interior minister Sheikh Rashid Ahmed revealed that he felt compelled to grant an interview upon reappearing after an enigmatic month-long disappearance following the May 9 incidents.
As a crucial petitioner in the Faizabad dharna case, he withdrew his review petition after presenting himself before the Supreme Court, emphasizing that he faced no torture during his month-long "chilla."
Upon exiting the courtroom, Sheikh Rashid was immediately surrounded by journalists inquiring about his recent interview with a private TV channel. He clarified that his original intention was to conduct a press conference but claimed to have been directed to participate in an interview instead.
Despite vehemently denying any torture during his "chilla," Sheikh Rashid, in a contradictory twist, extended forgiveness to the police officials and those accused of mistreating him.
Emphatically swearing that no harm befell him, he expressed a willingness to endure another "chilla," highlighting the presence of his bed still in his car.
Remaining steadfast in his commitment to two-seat politics symbolized by pen and paper, Sheikh Rashid called on the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf to support him in upcoming elections, vowing to persist in his political endeavors.
