After facing a failed assassination attempt on himself, former PM of Pakistan Imran Khan has blamed  PM Shehbaz Sharif, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah, and an ISI officer including  Major General Faisal Naseer for the attack.

Two leaders of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Party, Asad Umar, and Aslam Iqbal who were quoting Imran Khan’s words have said in a video message that three people were involved in the attack on him: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah, and an ISI officer. Major General Faisal Naseer also has a hand in it.

Imran Khan’s protest march was fired upon in the Wazirabad area of ​​Punjab, and as per the Pak media, seven people including Imran Khan were injured and one person was killed. 

On Thursday night(November 3, 2022), Asad Umar said in a video statement that Imran Khan demands that these people(whom Imran Khan blamed for the attack) should be removed from their office on the charge of a “murderous attack on him”.

“Khan Sahib’s message is that if these three people are not removed from their office, then there will be a nationwide protest and Pakistan will not be able to bear them,” said Asad Umar

Federal Interior Minister of Pakistan Rana Sanaullah has condemned the video statement of Asad Umar(about the attack on Imran Khan), in which he accused PM Shehbaz Sharif and an army officer of attacking Imran Khan.

While addressing the press conference, Rana Sanaullah said that it is a matter of regret that Tehreek-e-Insaf leaders like Asad Umar, Shireen Mazari, and Fawad Chaudhary are giving irresponsible statements.

Rana Sanaullah said that the initial statement of the arrested accused in the incident of firing on Imran Khan’s Long March is important and said that the responsibility of providing security was not just of the center but the government of Punjab. He further said that the resignation should be asked from the Chief Minister of the province instead of the Central Minister and the PM.

Immediately after the attack on Imran Khan, the police arrested the alleged assailant who admitted in a video posted on social media that he had planned the attack on his own. Punjab Chief Minister Chaudhry Parvez Elahi has suspended four policemen, including the SHO of the police, on the charge of spreading the video of this accused.

The Minister of Interior said that he has seen the confessional video of the alleged attacker and condemned his opinion that he is the cause of the attack, but he says that the leaders of Tehreek-e-Insaf are misleading the nation to gain the support of the people and to attack the government.

Immediately after the shooting, Imran Khan was taken from the container in his bullet-proof car to Shaukat Khanum hospital in Lahore.

Condemnation of world leaders and famous figures:

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called the attack on Imran Khan and his party members “violence” and strongly condemned it, saying that such incidents are unacceptable. Mr. Trudeau wrote on his Twitter:

“These [such incidents] have no place in politics in any republic or in our society. I wish a speedy recovery to Imran Khan and others injured in this incident”.

US Foreign Minister Antony Blinken also said in a tweet that the US strongly condemns the shooting of Imran Khan at a political rally and has requested immediate recovery for all the injured, including him.

Imran Khan’s former first British wife, Jemima Goldsmith, also reacted to the attack on him and wrote on Twitter that she is “horrified by such news”. Jemima wrote: “Thank God, he is healthy. I thank the brave man who stopped the assailant in the crowd.”

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Saudi Arabia also condemned the attack on Imran Khan and said in a statement that Saudi Arabia stands with Pakistan and the people of this country against any threat to peace, tranquility, and development.

Malala Yousafzai, who fights for girls’ education and won the International Peace Prize, opposed the attack on Imran Khan and prayed for his speedy recovery. Malala wrote on Twitter “Attacks on leaders of any political ideology and party are always wrong and violence is never an acceptable form of protest”.

The long march of the Tehreek-e-Insaf Party under the leadership of Imran Khan has started from Lahore city for the past six days.

After the attack on Imran Khan, supporters of Tehreek-e-Insaf have come out for protests in the major cities of the country and there have been reports of damage to government vehicles in some places
