Imran’s Remarks On Dismemberment Of Pakistan Strongly Condemned By Political Leadership
Condemning ousted prime minister Imran Khan's statement that the country may split into three pieces if establishment doesn’t take the ‘right decisions’, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has warned him to refrain from ‘crossing limits’.

While giving an interview to a local television channel on Wednesday, Imran Khan had asserted that if the establishment doesn't make the right decisions, the country will go bankrupt, which will end up destroying the army.

He claimed that since the country was headed towards a default, the military was going to be hit the worst when that happened. "After it is hit, what concession will be taken from us? Denuclearization," he said.

Khan reiterated the need for the establishment to make the 'right decisions', otherwise the country will break into three pieces. "Indian think tanks abroad are mulling to separate Balochistan, they have plans, this is why I am putting pressure," said Khan.

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif, who is currently in Turkey on a three-day official visit, condemned the remarks made by Khan, saying on Twitter that the latter was making 'naked threats' against the country.

Other prominent political leaders have also expressed condemnation over the statements given by the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairperson.

Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Co-chair Asif Ali Zardari said during a press conference that the language being used by Imran was akin to language used by Indian Prime Minister Modi, as no Pakistani could think of tearing Pakistan apart.

"The desire to tear Pakistan into pieces can not be fulfilled until we and our decedents are alive, Pakistan will exist till the day of judgement," Asif Zardari said.

PPP General Secretary Nayyar Bukhari took to Twitter to condemn Imran's remarks and said that the nation will make an example out of Khan.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) Senator Dr. Syed Asif Kirmani also criticized the reckless statement and urged the Supreme Court to take note of Khan's 'anti-Pakistan statements'.

Pakistan Democratic Movement Spokesperson Hafiz Hamdullah said that in his lust for power, Khan had talked about breaking up the country and the army, saying that undoubtedly his politics would end.
