Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah on Sunday said that ‘performers’ who give an ‘Islamic touch’ are now in need of a ‘legal touch’.
The Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) leader made the comments while responding to former minister Sheikh Rashid’s statement and added that “criminals” in the foreign funding case have been escaping the “legal touch” for the past eight years.
Earlier today, Rashid — who is also the Awami Muslim League (AML) leader — in a tweet said that: “Earthly powers are with [the] 15 ruling parties, celestial powers and people are with Imran Khan.”
In response, Sanaullah said: “These international thugs have been caught pocketing dollars unlawfully from foreigners. For each of their theft ‘deceiving Imran and foreign agents’ become even more crafty and creative with their lies.”.
He went on to term former prime minister and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) cheif Imran Khan a ‘crooked character’.
“Those driving a hateful campaign against martyrs are dirty and vile characters,” he added.
Moreover, the federal minister said that despite the PTI chairman’s efforts to avoid the foreign funding verdict for eight years, “God finally allowed the truth to come out.”
