Imran Khan justifies ‘lanat’ to Parliament

January 18, 2018

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan Thursday defended using the curse word ‘lanat’ for the country’s legislature as it legislated exclusively for Nawaz Sharif to become the head of his political party.

Supreme Court of Pakistan in its July 28 verdict disqualified Nawaz Sharif from the parliament in the Panama Papers case. Later, the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) de-notified him as the party chief complying with the apex court’s order.

Addressing a large gathering on Mall Road in Lahore, Imran Khan voiced his wrath against the Parliament for allowing Nawaz Sharif, who he called money-launder, to head his political party.

Imran Khan justified his slur in a couple of tweets on micro-blogging website, Twitter, saying, “When a Parliament, which must protect nation's interests, passes a person-specific law allowing a disqualified person guilty of Rs 3 bn money laundering, tax evasion, concealment of assets, forgery & perjury to become head of a political party, then such a law is a "laanath" on Parliament.”

He also announced to address a press conference to make some 'explosive revelations' today.
