Cricketer Basit Ali prays for Imran Khan’s safety

Former cricketer Basit Ali has prayed for the safety of prime minister-designate Imran Khan.

“External forces have always gotten true patriots like Liaquat Ali Khan, Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto killed,” while exclusively speaking to SAMAA TV on Friday. “I pray to God that he keeps Imran Khan safe,” he said.

“Imran Khan is doing for the country what others have not.”

Ali asked the upcoming government and opposition parties to refrain from leveling accusations against one another

“No one should accuse each other without getting to know the facts first,” Ali said.  He added that political parties should impress the nation with their performance.

The ex-cricketer asked Imran to work for the poor as God has given white collar and rich people everything. “The poor are getting poorer everyday,” he said.

When asked why he did not visit Imran to congratulate him on his victory, he said that his brother had a heart attack and he was taking care of him.
