Sheikh Rashid pins hope on judiciary to save Pakistan


RAWALPIND: People’s Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid Ahmad hopes the judiciary will play its part to save Pakistan, which is currently in political and economic crisis.

The former home minister was released from Adiyala after the Islamabad High Court (IHC) granted him bail in a case registered against former president Asif Ali Zardari for plotting to murder PTI. Chairman Imran Khan said this in a series of tweets a day after his release from prison. Islamabad police arrested him on February 2 during a nighttime raid.

AML chief thanked Allah Almighty for giving him the courage to spend 16 days in jail. He said the country was facing an uncertain situation. He hoped the judiciary would save the country like “Quaid-e-Azam succeeded”.

He vowed to win from defeat, declaring war on oppression starting today. The veteran politician said he would make a major statement in a speech at Lal Haveli’s residence at 3 p.m. “I would be an advocate for the poor,” he said.
