In the following news item, Imran Khan seems to condemn the sectarian killing of the Hazara / Shia leader in Quetta. However, Imran Khan did not care to pinpoint and condemn “the elements [who] are conspiring to split the nation”. He also did not explain how “we get united to foil nefarious designs of the miscreant elements.”
So much for the rhetoric. How can we expect Imran Khan to condemn the terrorists of Taliban / Sipah-e-Shahaba when he seems to support their stance instead of the Pakistani nation’s stance on the war on terror?
