LAHORE: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan said the nation asks Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) as to why they amended the clause of Khatm-e-Nabuwwat from election law so secretly.
Addressing a ceremony at Aiwan-e-Iqbal here, he said the clause regarding finality of the Prophethood of the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) was adopted after deliberations of 23 days in 1973.
The amendment mistake was admitted by the apologetic PML-N itself and they formed a committee headed by Raja Zafarul Haq to ascertain the facts involved, said Imran Khan.
Khan asserted the report, which the committee was mandated to give within 48 hours of its formation, is still awaited adding, “I say it with full confidence that the amendment was introduced to please a foreign power; accordingly, the reason could not come to the fore.”
Imran Khan said the nation will not forget the grave mistake the PML-N made, adding Nawaz Sharif is courting support from the foreign lobby to save him.
