Big change in­evitable to save coun­try: AQ Khan

The Pak Banker - - Front Page -


Terming the cur­rent main­stream po­lit­i­cal lead­er­ship of the coun­try as 'inapt', Nu­clear Sci­en­tist Dr Ab­dul Qadeer Khan Wed­nes­day said a big change was in­evitable to save the coun­try from col­lapse.

Ad­dress­ing a gath­er­ing of lawyers at District Bar As­so­ci­a­tion in Gu­jran­wala on Wed­nes­day, he said re­peat­ing the same lead­er­ship and pro­vid­ing them with an­other chance to rule meant more frus­tra­tion and chaos for the na­tion.

He said the peo­ple of Pak­istan should join hands with him to save the coun­try in­stead of be­com­ing jiyalas or mat­walas.

He said there was no up to the mark lead­er­ship in the coun­try and even PTI chair­man Im­ran Khan was not good enough. He said the com­mon man had no hope for a bet­ter fu­ture. He urged the peo­ple of Pak­istan to join hands with him to bring about a change in the coun­try. He crit­i­cised the PPP government for show­ing dis­obe­di­ence to the Supreme Court or­ders, say­ing all ed­u­cated and civ­i­lized so­ci­eties ac­cepted and im­ple­mented courts ver­dicts. Dr Khan said eight-year un­in­ter­rupted rule of Gen­eral Pervez Mushar­raf fol­lowed by four and a half years of PPP government had not given any­thing to the na­tion ex­cept power short­age and price hike. He said that ju­di­ciary can bring hope to the de­jected faces of Pak­istan as false slo­gans of PPP like Roti Kapra and Makan is not giv­ing any ben­e­fit to the ill-fated masses in this re­gard. Re­mind­ing former PM Gi­lani of his state­ment, Dr Ab­dul Qadeer Khan said that he (PM) said that only par­lia­ment can sack him but look what hap­pened, one ver­dict of Supreme Court re­moved him urg­ing Ju­di­ciary can bring rev­o­lu­tion­ary changes in the coun­try.
