  • The article is based on assumption and misconception.The writer does not know even a single bit of what Imran Khan says.
    Imran doesn’t ask to hold talks with Walli Ur Rehman,he rather asks to isolate Rehman from those who are looking for peace.
    The article is totally based on writer’s anger over suicide bombing but he doesn’t know how to stop it.But Imran does know that.

    Imran should be given chance for holding talks.

  • I wonder is Imran Khan agreed with this as well?

    A delegation of the Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf (PTI) Sunday called on the party chairman, Imran Khan, here to condole with him on the death of Major General Bilal Omar, who was the PTI chief’s close relative. The general fell victim to a terrorist attack at a mosque in Parade Lane in Rawalpindi the other day along with several others.

    SWINGING PENDULUM OF IMRAN KHAN’ SUDDEN SUPPORT TO THE TALIBAN IS QUITE STARNAGE BECAUSE IN THE YEAR 2000 AND 2002 THE SAME IMRAN KHAN HAD SUPPORTED GENERAL PERVEZ MUSHARRAF’S MARTIAL LAW [VIOLATION OF ARTICLE 6 0F 1973 CONSTITUTION OF PAKISTAN] AND EVEN IF THAT WAS NOT ENOUGH HE HAD ALSO SUPPORTED THE ILLEGAL AND SHAM REFERENDUM OF GENERAL MUSHARRAF.

    RECENT HISTORY THROUGH DAILY DAWN [supporting Musharraf Martial Law of 1999 and then Musharraf’s sham referendum in 2002], he also supported PCOed Judiciary! Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaaf chief Imran Khan has hailed the SC verdict on the Oct 12 change and said that it will provide the present government with an element of legitimacy. Mr Khan said the government should start the implementation of the seven-point agenda. He said it should give priority to the accountability process. It should declare casting of vote mandatory for every voter and undertake other needed electoral reforms to discourage the election of corrupt elements for parliamentary slots. He said the government should also set a limit for election expenditure. Imran Khan hailed PCOed Judiciary! http://chagataikhan.blogspot.com/2009/08/imran-khan-hailed-pcoed-judiciary.html

    BUT WHAT IS THIS? Islamabad, April 9: Pakistani cricket legend-turned politician Imran Khan on Tuesday backed the referendum to be held next month to decide the future of President Pervez Musharraf but his fledgling Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf headed for trouble as some of its leaders have opposed it openly.

  • Mr Khan is either too simple to be a leader or he is just wanting to waste all the sacrifices of Pakistani soldiers to give the barbarians a cover to regroup. To see a so called educated politician act so stupid or disgustingly devil is pathetic!
