A legendary cricketer who might as well become Pakistan’s next prime minister has been requested to play his role in saving precious human lives in Balochistan as he had appeared as a defense witness in the case of Hyrbyair Marri and Faiz Baluch.
Imran Khan, former captain of the Pakistan cricket team and chairman for the Pakistan’s Movement for Justice [Pakistan Tehrik-i-Insaf], who is also the author of “Pakistan: A Personal History” has influence with both Inter-Services Intelligence and Hyrbyair Marri, whom he had saved from being jailed.
The DC-based American Friends of Balochistan Thursday contacted Imran Khan through the head of his party in United Kingdom, Rabia Zia, in what it called its efforts for “Civility in stead of Brutality Campaign” in Balochistan, Pakistan’s area-wise largest province.
The A.F.B. reminded Imran Khan, “You had defended Mr. Marri during his terror trial and your bold testimony in the Express reads: ‘He told the court he would have been willing to use violence against the Pakistan government if he had been from the country’s poorest province of Baluchistan, where he said the army had killed and kidnapped citizens, made 75,000 homeless, rigged elections and controlled the courts.’”
Imran Khan is being groomed to become the next prime minister by his party and supporters, Pakistan media reports suggest.
