In a dramatic development and consistent with PTI’s Islamist, right-wing inclinations, Mufti Abdul Qavi, a conservative Mullah of Pakistan, announced to join PTI in a crowded press conference. The press conference was held in presence of Imran Khan, Javed Hashmi, Shah Mehmood Qureshi and others.
Imran Khan’s political party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) enjoys support of numerous right-wing parties and individuals including but not limited to the Sipah-e-Shaba Pakistan (SSP aka ASWJ-LeJ), Taliban, Jamaat-ud-Dawa (aka Lashkar-e-Taiba) and Jamaat-e-Islami.
Mufti Abdul Qavi is the latest addition to the long list of pro-Imran Khan mullahs.
Imran Khan has often stated that he wants to make Pakistan an Islamic State and would like to implement Islamic Sharia in the country in the footsteps of Mullah Omar led Taiban government in Afghanistan.

By the way, Mufti Abdul Qavi is the same mullah who was tutored by Veena Malik on ‘ghairat’. In a talk show broadcasrt last year, Mufti Qavi had admonished Veena Malik to examine her conscience for her immoral behavior on a popular Indian reality TV show, telling her she had “disgraced Pakistan, as well as Islam.” Qavi later admitted he had never watched Malik’s show.
