    Facts Often Bitter Disastrous PM Warns Imran Over Assertion Of Pakistan Becoming Jungle 33455
    Description: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif warned Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan over his earlier assertion of Pakistan becoming a 'jungle', saying "facts were often bitter and disastrous" as he hinted at the former premier's rule. The statement comes a day after the ex-premier asked Shehbaz if military officers were above the law. The PTI chief, with a screenshot of the incumbent premier’s tweet, questioned if he could "dare" to ask the prime minister if he, as a citizen "who suffered two assassination attempts on his life in [the] last few months", had the right to nominate those he thought “responsible” for the assassination attacks. Retorting to Imran's tweets, PM Shehbaz today maintained that he had “no doubt” that Imran’s politics were defined by “blatant lies, untruths, U-turns, and vicious attacks on institutions”. He added that Imran bent the judiciary to his “whims” and behaved as if rules did not “apply” to him. I have no doubt that your politics is defined by blatant lies, untruths, U-turns, and vicious attacks on institutions. Bending the judiciary to your whims and behaving as if rules don’t apply to you. What I said about you in my tweet is established by facts over the past few… https://t.co/SEi3HRj19m — Shehbaz Sharif (@CMShehbaz) May 9, 2023 “What I said about you in my tweet is established by facts over the past few years,” he said, defending his earlier statement. Listing “counter questions” Shehbaz stated that “maligning Pakistan Army as an institution” was a recurring pattern in Imran’s politics after his ouster. He questioned if Imran did “not resort to constant mud-slinging of the leadership of the army and intelligence agency much before the Wazirabad attack?” He asked Imran what legal routes he adopted “other than hurling threats and making baseless allegations almost on a daily basis?” Read Imran asks ISPR to 'listen carefully' as he calls out senior military official again “You refused the offer of cooperation from the federal government and boycotted the legal proceedings. You were never interested in finding the truth about the attack but used the condemnable incident for petty political objectives,” he stated. He further questioned at whose behest “the savaging social media campaign against the martyrs of the armed forces [was] launched after the helicopter crash?” “Which party did the troll brigade belong to that mocked the martyrs, which was a new low and unimaginable in our politics and culture?” He pondered if an enemy was needed given Imran’s “subversive” and “treacherous” acts. In his fourth and final question, he inquired who “used religion for political purposes by describing the political agitation in religious terms”, and labelled it “a cunning and self-serving attempt at exposing political opponents to violence” at the hands of his supporters. “Did your party leaders not condone, justify and even celebrate the incident of harassment and intimidation of an official delegation including a female minister in the courtyard of our beloved Prophet's Mosque (PBUH) by disregarding all norms of reverence and devoutness?” he asked. He clarified that as a former prime minister “currently on trial for corruption”, Imran was “claiming legitimacy to overturn the legal and political system”. “As for your assertion of Pakistan becoming a ‘jungle’, I advise you not to go there, for the facts are often bitter and disastrous. Let us keep this for another day,” the prime minister concluded.
