Here’s a story you won’t see in the mainstream media.
The prime minister of Pakistan, Nawaz Sharif, has been accused of taking money from Osama bin Laden to fund jihad in Kashmir.
The accusation comes from an opposition party leader — Imran Khan’s party, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf. So political supporters of Sharif are likely to spin the allegation as pure partisan hack.
But the allegation is shocking just the same. And it’s got some teeth.
“Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has been accused of taking money from al Qaeda terrorist Osama bin Laden to promote jihad in Kashmir. The allegation has been made by opposition leader Imran Khan’s party – Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf.
“Imran Khan has been demanding Nawaz Sharif’s resignation over alleged corruption. Fawad Chaudhry, a spokesperson from Imaran Khan’s party said yesterday that he would file a petition in Pakistan’s Supreme Court seeking admission of a case against Mr Sharif for “taking funds from a foreign individual to destabilise and conspire” against the country, The Express Tribune reported.
“Mr Khan’s party says it bases its claim against Nawaz Sharif on interviews and excerpts from a book ‘Khalid Khawaja: Shaheed-e-Aman’ by Shamama Khalid, wife of a former Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) spy Khalid Khawaja, who was brutally murdered in 2010 by the Pakistani Taliban.
“Relying on the revelations made in certain interviews and a book, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf intends to open up a shady chapter in the country’s political history from late 1980s in an apparent bid to further malign (Nawaz) Sharif,” the report in Express Tribune said.
“The interviews and the book claim that Mr Sharif “took money, amounting to Rs. 1.5 billion from former al-Qaeda chief Osama Bin Laden to promote jihad in Kashmir and Afghanistan,” the report said.
“They also claim that later, an amount of Rs. 270 million from this money was utilised to support a no-confidence move against Benazir Bhutto in 1989, the report said.”
