LAHORE: Imran khan chairman PTI (Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf) has taken strong expectation to Altaf Husain’s statement that the Quiad took the oath of allegiance to King George when he was sworn in as Governor-general.
Khan said the the leader of MQM distorted the history, “The oath taken by the Quaid-i-Azam was determined by the fact that the independence of Pakistan in 1947 was not complete. Both India and Pakistan had attained quasi independence and became dominions of the British Empire. It was for this reason that the Quaid-i-Azam became governor-general and not the president”. He added, “The governor-general was nominally a representative of the British monarch and this fact was reflected in the oath that was taken by both the Pakistani Governor-General and Indian Governor General Mountbatten”.
Imran khan said that drawing a parallel between the situation then and the status of his being a British Citizen now its complete distortion of the facts and history. He said, “To claim national leadership it is a mockery if vast properties of the leaders are not in Pakistan but abroad. Every time Pakistani currency devalues these leaders become richer. This is a joke with the sufferings of the people of Pakistan”. PTI advised MQM leaders that do not drag the leader of the nation in the political country debate.
