ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan on Friday vehemently opposed a military operation in Karachi, saying peace should be restored in the country’s commercial capital by using police.
Speaking to media persons here, Khan said that 150, 000 military jawans were fighting terrorists in the tribal areas and Balochistan. It will be inappropriate to engage the military in Karachi now, he opined.
Police, he said, should be de-politicized in Karachi in order to maintain peace in the city.
To a question, he said that Maulana Fazlur Rehman was doing politics by selling religion. He questioned Rehman’s source of income, saying that JUI-F was living like a king.
The PTI leader said that Pakistan’s problems could not be addressed by the current government.
