Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rasheed stated on Wednesday that Imran Khan will be returned to power through a peaceful campaign.
Sheikh Rasheed, speaking to a large public gathering of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in Peshawar, claimed that the people of the country had taken to the streets to support Khan’s campaign.
“Everyone is well aware of what the international community did to Saddam Hussein and Muammar Gaddafi. Additionally, they (Opposition Power) intend to introduce a motion against the president Dr. Arif Alvi.
He called on the people of the country to come out in support of Imran Khan. “Those who polish boats and suffer from platelet diseases are re-assigned to positions of authority. We will peacefully bring back Khan as the leader of the country.”
Rasheed asserted that the motion to impeach the president will be rejected by the Senate. In his announcement, he stated that they are prepared to face prison sentences for Khan. On April 16, he will travel to Karachi to meet with representatives from the Muttahida Qaumi Movement Pakistan (MQM-P).
Earlier in the day, the AML leader claimed that former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan’s life is in danger following his removal from power.
Sheikh Rasheed, a former minister and close ally of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), stated at a press conference that Imran Khan has defied foreign pressure to depose him and that he is concerned that some foreign forces may attempt to assassinate him as the PTI leader prepares to hold rallies in several cities across the country.
“Because Imran Khan’s policies have enraged superpowers, they may as well try to assassinate him,” Sheikh Rasheed said, adding that the former prime minister should avoid calling a protest in Islamabad for fear of being killed or imprisoned if he does.
He reiterated his commitment to standing with Imran Khan and stated that he, too, does not want to sit in assemblies with an “imported administration,” and as such, he, like the other PTI MNAs, has submitted his resignation to Imran Khan for consideration.
