Ex-Pakistani PM Imran Khan Accuses Army Chief of Targeting Wife, Threatens Consequences

Former Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan, currently detained at Adiala Jail, has made startling allegations against Army Chief General Asim Munir. Khan accused General Munir of orchestrating the imprisonment of his wife, Bushra Bibi, in a corruption case and for their alleged illegal marriage.

The controversy stems from Bushra Bibi’s conviction, with Khan asserting that the judge felt compelled to convict her due to external pressure, implicating General Munir directly in the legal proceedings. Khan’s remarks, posted on his official social media account, warned of consequences if anything were to happen to his wife, directly targeting General Munir.

In his statement, Khan denounced what he described as a “law of the jungle” prevailing in the country, suggesting unequal treatment in the judicial system. He highlighted the swiftness of convictions against him and his party members contrasted with leniency towards other political figures, citing Nawaz Sharif as an example.

Beyond legal and political critiques, Khan also touched on economic matters, criticizing reliance on International Monetary Fund (IMF) loans and advocating for investment-driven stabilization. He linked the lack of rule of law to reduced investment opportunities in Pakistan, emphasizing the need for a conducive legal environment.

Furthermore, Khan referenced a recent clash between police and army personnel in Punjab, condemning the use of force against law enforcement officers. He criticized the apologies issued by senior officials to those who allegedly assaulted the police, portraying it as an act of submission rather than justice.

Regarding upcoming by-elections, Khan alleged interference aimed at obstructing his party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), from participating fully. He framed this resistance as a form of resistance and called upon PTI members to protect each vote rigorously.

As of now, the Pakistani military has not issued a response to Khan’s allegations, leaving the situation with significant political tension and unanswered questions about the intersection of law, politics, and military influence in Pakistan.
