Bugti: ‘Ladla’ Imran Khan has unimaginable facilities in jail

Bugti: ‘Ladla’ Imran Khan has unimaginable facilities in jail. The caretaker interior minister of Pakistan, Sarfraz Bugti, has described Imran Khan, the head of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), as being the “ladla” of the courts. He said that the facilities he receives in prison are extraordinary, as compared to any other prisoner or prior prime minister who has been imprisoned in the past.

During an exclusive interview with Independent Urdu on Thursday, the interior minister told Independent Urdu that a common citizen would not be able to even imagine the conditions in jail where Imran Khan is being held. 

During a discussion discussing the events which led to Khan’s arrest, Bugti stated that Khan was ordered to be driven in a Mercedes to the police lines in Islamabad when he was being arrested on May 9. 

As per the minister’s assertions, comments such as, “nice, good to see you” by former chief minister Umar Ata Bandial have further strengthened his arguments, as he stressed that the judicial system is in dire need of reform in Pakistan due to the fact that “there are issues with the judicial system”. 

According to Bugti, he will accept the order of the court as to whether Imran Khan will appear in the court on November 28 for the cipher case or not. 

He was booked under the Official Secrets Act 1923 after he was ousted from office in April 2013 following a vote of no confidence, and as a result has been indicted as part of the cipher case against him. Adiala prison is where he is presently being held. 

Nawaz’s charges are ‘baseless’

Also, Bugti mentioned the legal problems faced by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supremo Nawaz Sharif, saying he believes many of the cases against him are “unfounded”.

In history, this is the first time a father has been disqualified for not taking his son’s salary. 

As for the level-playing field claims made by the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Bugti noted that the PML-N will not be favoured in next year’s elections, which will occur on February 8. 

Bilawal Bhutto Zardari has consistently complained that the general elections will not be conducted on a level playing field. It has consistently been voiced by the party that there are insufficient opportunities for it to prove itself before the polls, which is a major concern. 

It is not appropriate to criticize Bilawal Bhutto’s statement, as all political parties are working to the same end. Everyone knows that Zaka Ashraf is the PPP’s ladla and candidate. Everyone has an equal playing field here, so it is not appropriate to comment on his statement,” he concluded. 

During an interview with Bugti, he said that the ministry has assured the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) that all kinds of support will be extended to it during the elections. 

There will be no welcome in Pakistan for those who come in disguise

Furthermore, Bugti talked about the repatriation of the Afghan people to Afghanistan, saying that considering the current state of law and order in Pakistan, those who have come to Pakistan are going to have to return to their homeland. 

According to him, Pakistan is a country for Pakistanis and Pakistanis will live in this country. Foreigners wishing to live in Pakistan must come here legally. Those who come here in disguise will not be welcome here, he concluded. 

There has also been an increase in the number of illegal immigrants returned home in the past few months, with 99% of them being Afghans. 

A mass exodus is being carried out by Afghans in Pakistan following the government’s decision to deport 1.7 million illegal migrants from the country. It had been made clear by the government that the undocumented foreigners would face arrest and expulsion after November 1 unless they complied with the government’s ultimatum. 

The number of missing persons in Pakistan is the lowest

According to Bugti, when addressing the problem of missing persons in Balochistan, the court’s order summoning Caretaker Prime Minister Anwaar-ul-Haq Kakar for hearings was improper as it summons the PM on every little matter and this is not a proper practice. 

In a case pertaining to the missing Baloch students, Prime Minister Kakar was summoned for personal appearance by the Islamabad High Court (IHC) on November 29 in the matter of the missing Baloch students. Despite repeated requests from the government for help in locating the missing students, the court issued its order. 

In addition, he also claimed that data shows that Pakistan has the lowest number of missing persons in the world. According to the official, there is about 78% of the case that has been solved, but it has become a propaganda tactic against the country. 

It is time for countries to stop providing arms to Israel

According to Bugti, the war crimes committed by Israel during the ongoing invasion of Gaza have been exposed in light of the ongoing invasion of Gaza by Israel. 

As Pakistan will continue to support Palestine, we condemn the cruelty that has been committed against Palestine,” he said, adding that Pakistan shares the same position as the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC)

Pakistan’s foreign minister also stated that the country supported the Saudi Arabian statement that countries should stop providing ammunition and arms to the Israeli army.
