PESHAWAR: Former Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader and MNA Ayesha Gulalai wrote a letter to the Secretary Home and Tribal Affairs Department on Friday informing him that she has been receiving death threats ever since she left the party.
Ayesha Gulalai wrote a letter to the Secretary demanding additional security after her controversial press conference became the talk of the town during the past couple of days.
In the letter, Ayesha requested for additional security stating that she was receiving death threats after she left PTI.
Reacting to the letter, Ayesha Gulalai has been granted additional security by the Home and Tribal Affairs Department.
Gulalai’s controversial press conference
Ayesha Gulalai had said during her press conference from a couple of days ago that she would not call the cricketer-turned-politician a Khan but would now refer to him as Imran Niazi, since she did not recognise him as a Pathan.
Gulalai said that Imran Khan had even said inappropriate words for Benazir Bhutto once during a PTI meeting, which she did not like since the former prime minister was no longer alive.
“Imran Khan once used deplorable words for Benazir Bhutto,” she said. “I think it is highly wrong to use such words for someone who has passed away. Even Islam teaches us not to say anything bad about people who have passed away,” she added.
Ayesha stated that she received the very first inappropriate text message from Imran Khan in October 2013. Gulalai stated that she was a very active worker who was on ground while Imran’s change was mostly on social media.
