The Interior Ministry of Pakistan has issued a threat alert claiming that former prime minister Imran Khan may be attacked by one of several Islamic extremist groups in consideration of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s Hadeeqi Azadi March.
It states that Khan might be targeted by a Tehreek e Labbaik member, Islamic State Khorasan could attack him for supporting Majlis Wahdatul Muslimeen, or a dormant Al Qaeda could target him because it has a “penchant” for carrying out assaults with “strategic consequences.”
Earlier, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah also stated that Imran Khan’s life is under threat.
The interior minister claimed that “every adversary and every enemy agency of Pakistan are after his life because he has got an FIR registered against him.”
He said, “Now if something happens to Khan, may it not be so and I wish for long life, then the Pakistan Army, ISI, myself, and the prime minister would be blamed because he has already taped four names.
Sanaullah claimed that if someone were to be successful in carrying out their evil plans, no one would be able to approach them or intervene with them because the entire guilt would fall on the four individuals previously mentioned in the recording.
Regarding the PTI long march, Sanaullah stated that the federal government had no intention of using force against those taking part as long as they remained nonviolent.
