Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Imran Khan also strongly condemned the NATO helicopters attack on Salala Check Post in the Momand Agency that resulted in the death of twenty security personnel. He termed it an insane and immoral brutality. He said that these attacks reflected the hollowness and counter-productivity of Pakistan’s involvement in the aimless ‘war on terror’ that had been unleashed to subdue the proud people of the region.
According to him Pakistan had sacrificed 40,000 people and an equal number of people had been disabled and become incapacitated. Pakistan had also incurred a loss of over US$ 75 billion in the bargain, yet it was being incessantly targeted by the forces of its so-called ‘ally’.
Imran Khan said that Pakistan’s involvement in the war had radicalized its society and it injected anti-Americanism. He said that time had come for the government to pull out of this inhuman conflict and start a meaningful dialogue to bring peace in the country and the region. He further said that the continued involvement in this war would only produce more militancy and destruction.
