We are ashamed to say Javed Hashmi lies.
Javed Hashmi said Imran Khan told him Army and judiciary is with him particularly for this Azadi March. ISPR denied this accusation. Imran Khan has already dispensed a very strong rebuttal this evening in his speech while addressing audience of sit-in in Islamabad. Imran Khan stated in the summer of 2013 after election he said to his core committee members meeting that if by next summer (summer of 2014) this rigging issues are not resolved PTI will go on road. Further he said if Army and Judiciary were behind him then General Kiyani and Iftikhar Mohammad Chaudary both have retired so how they can pass on their support to their incumbents.
The question is, is it a new revelation to Javed Hashmi. If he did not like that why he did not leave PTI at that time when he learned about this. Actually, the story is different. Javed Hashmi had secret contacts with PMLN for some time. Khawaja Asif mentioned once in a TV program. There are some other stories also but we will leave that here for the time being.
People including media have created his image larger than life but the fact of the matter is he is no different than other politicians of Pakistan including his long time boss Nawaz Sharif. Basically, he is not a person of a stable temperament. Also, he has interpersonal problems. Starting from his political career, PTI was his fourth party. Chances are sooner or later he will go back to PMLN under the Nawaz Sharif. When he was in the college he was active member of Jamiat-e-Talba (student wing of Jamat-e-Islami). Jamiat was famous for violence. Then he was a minister in Zia ul Haq’s regime. Now he talk about anti dictatorship. Nawaz Sharif was chief minister of Punjab. Now he also claims he has fought for democracy.
When Nawaz Sharif came into power he was again a minister in his cabinet. He made money just like any other minister and his boss during that time. Today he talks about corruption.
What a pity? Few days back he was shouting slogans against Nawaz Sharif and today he was shown on TV screens in the parliament before leaving the house he went to see Nawaz Sharif with a smiling face and shacked with his old boss.
Earlier while he was member of PTI he said in the parliament Nawaz Sharif is his leader and will always be his leader. That was the opening session of the parliament after May 2013 election. Khawaja Asif of PMLN said it seems Javed Hashmi wants to come back to PMLN.
We don’t know Imran Khan asked Javed Hashmi about his statement or not but definitely Imran Khan tolerated him. It seems Imran Khan don’t have experience with these old timer felon characters. When Javed Hashmi left Imran Khan for Multan before the start of Azadi March from Lahore we indicated to Imran Khan, Javed Hashmi is a dead horse. He should not depend on him.
