Im­ran must apol­o­gize to Maryam: Dar

Lev­el­ling base­less al­le­ga­tion

Pakistan Observer - - TWIN CITIES -

ISLAMABAD—Fi­nance Min­is­ter Se­na­tor Mo­ham­mad Ishaq Dar on Satur­day said it had been es­tab­lished that Maryam Nawaz was not re­spon­si­ble for the La­hore in­ci­dent so PTI Chair­man Im­ran Khan must ten­der an apol­ogy to her keep­ing in view eth­i­cal and Is­lamic val­ues.

“Now when the facts have come to sur­face and it has been es­tab­lished that at the hands of which per­son­al­ity the sis­ter of Im­ran Khan had to face in­con­ve­nience, he must apol­o­gize to Maryam Nawaz, keep­ing in view the Is­lamic and moral val­ues,” Dar said in a state­ment.

Re­ject­ing the al­le­ga­tion of Pak­i­tan Tehreek-i-Isaf (PTI) chief hold­ing Maryam Nawaz re­spon­si­ble for the in­ci­dent, the Fi­nance Min­is­ter said Im­ran Khan habitu- ally re­acted to any in­ci­dent just on the ba­sis of here­say and with­out proper in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

He ad­vised be­ing the head of a po­lit­i­cal party, Im­ran Khan must adopt a re­spon­si­ble at­ti­tude. Be­sides spend­ing some time with his sons, Im­ran Khan must also spend some time with his daugh­ter so that he may feel re­spect, af­fec­tion and feel­ings of daugh­ters. He said Maryam Nawaz was a daugh­ter of the na­tion and say­ing some­thing about her with­out in­ves­ti­ga­tion was very ir­re­spon­si­ble and de­plorable.

Dar said Im­ran Khan must de­cide now whether he would con­tinue his newly es­tab­lished part­ner­ship with a party, the per­son­al­ity of which made her sis­ter to face in­con­ve­nience.—APP
