‘Terrible, sad and unjustified’: Imran Khan condemns attack on Salman Rushdie

Former PM and PTI chief Imran Khan has condemned the knife attack on renowned novelist Salman Rushdie in an interview with The Guardian.

He described the attack as “terrible” and “sad”. During the interview, the PTI chairman was asked for his response to the knife attack on Rushdie.

Imran Khan said that he thinks its terrible and sad. “Rushdie understood, because he came from a Muslim family. He knows the love, respect, reverence of a prophet that lives in our hearts. He knew that,” Khan said.

The former PM said that despite the fact that the anger against the novelist is understandable but what happened can not be justified.

Talking about Shahbaz Gill, Khan said that he was brutally tortured and “psychologically broken”. He added that Gill is being forced to blame him for the things he said on live television.

“What they’re doing to Gill is sending a message to everyone,” he said.

The cricketer turned politician told Guardian that his workers have been scared as the government is trying “to sort of intimidate the people.”

Imran Khan blamed the security agencies for picking media persons during his tenure and added that they were released immediately by his government. Regarding the alleged foreign conspiracy, he said that the Pakistani security agencies could have stopped it, if they were not behind it.
