PTI Chairman Imran Khan has been a staunch critic of Pakistan’s decision to join the US-led war against terrorism. But an old video appears to suggest that the cricketer-turned-politician had put his weight behind Pervez Musharraf’s foreign policy following 9/11 attacks.

Imran Khan was referring to a terrorist attack on the Indian Parliament on December 13, 2003. - SAMAA
