Shock and condemnation over attack on Pakistan ex-PM

An attack on Pakistan’s former Prime Minister Imran Khan – which supporters say was an attempted assassination – has drawn international condemnation.

The shooting of the former Pakistani Prime Minister last Thursday has been condemned as heinous as leaders in Pakistan and abroad said violence has no place in politics. 

Khan was stable after being shot in the leg at a political rally. He has been leading the march since the previous Friday from Lahore to Islamabad, campaigning for fresh elections after being forced from office in April this year. 

Many days after the incident, and speaking to Radio Islam International Chairperson of the Rights Group Defence of Human Rights Pakistan, Amina Janjua said the shooters’ motivation and background remain a mystery. 

According to Janjua, one of the apprehended suspects merely stated that he aimed to stop Khan from creating a nuisance in society. 

She said the shreds of evidence have proven that many shooters were firing from different angles. 

“There were more than fifteen shots fired from different angles, and the suspect posing as a radical is just a scapegoat of the actual shooters still at large.”

Khan has recorded a video in which he discloses whom he assumes attempts to take his life. Janjua said he further complained there are three suspects he wants the FRIs registered against, one of which is a sitting incumbent Prime Minister, Shehbaz Sharif. The second is Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah Khan, and the third is an army General.

However, no evidence has been provided on Khan’s claim thus far, which is why FRI has not been registered.
