Biden Regime Behind Phony Charges Against Pakistan’s Imran Khan?
by Stephen Lendman
Last April, Biden regime dirty hands were behind a parliamentary no-confidence vote — a coup by other means — to oust Imran Khan as Pakistan’s PM.
What happened was all about his commitment to serve Pakistan’s interests over US ones, to stay neutral on Russia’s SMO in Ukraine, and maintain Islamabad’s independence over vassalage to a higher power in Washington.
US puppet, Shehbaz Sharif, was illegitimately installed as PM to replace Khan.
That’s where things now stand, his regime’s agenda shaped by hegemon USA.
It includes prevention of legitimate attempts by Khan to regain the office from which hegemon USA orchestrated his ouster — by whatever it takes to achieve this diabolical aim.
On Sunday, the puppet Sharif regime falsely charged Khan with violating Pakistan’s Anti-Terrorism (Act) — for allegedly “threatening” a female judge and senior police officers at a public rally.
So-called Pakistani interior minister, Rana Sanaullah, also called for Khan to be prosecuted for allegedly making “derogatory” remarks about Pakistani military Shuhada (martyrs).
Khan said the following at a Sunday rally:
“On May 25, when police used violence against us, I was told by insiders that (what happened was) ordered from above.”
This “means that neutrals pressured them to give…workers (of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf party — PTI — he foundered and heads as chairman) a thrashing.”
Referring to the country’s military, he questioned whether its “neutrals were really neutral” — that in cahoots with the Biden regime, they’re involved in cracking down on him and his PTI party, adding:
“I know what their plan is.”
It’s all about removing him from the political scene by prosecuting and imprisoning him on false charges, along with sidelining his PTI party, rendering it powerless.
Until targeted by Biden regime dark forces, likely CIA ones, the PTI was Pakistan’s “biggest party at the federal level,” Khan explained, adding:
His chief of staff, Shahbaz Gill, was kidnapped, abused and heavily pressured to give false testimony against him.
According to Dawn.com, Khan’s public addresses are now banned on television — on the phony pretext of making controversial remarks (sic) about judges and police officials.
Google’s YouTube acted in similar fashion to silence his truth-telling.
On Sunday, senior PTI leader, Shireen Mazari, tweeted the following:
“Regime change conspirators so scared of Imran Khan that today in middle of IK speech they blocked YouTube thru PTA. Shameful!”
“This will not silence us.”
“Fascism at its peak as fear overwhelms the cabal of crooks & their string pullers!”
“THE WORD IS CERTAINLY MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD.”
Separately, she explained that police ceased providing security for Khan and his residence.
In his Saturday evening address, he threatened legal action against Islamabad’s police inspector general and deputy inspector general, adding:
Greatly biased against him for contrived reasons, the judiciary and judge Zeba Chaudhry will face consequences for their actions.
Late Sunday, Pakistani police erected barricades outside Khan’s Banigala residence to isolate him from supporters.
After his Sunday address, he was reportedly at an undisclosed Rawalpindi location — while thousands of supporters were outside his residence to express support.
Phony charges against Khan in a so-called First Investigation Report (FIR) said the following:
His public remarks “spread fear and uncertainty among the police, judges and the nation.”
It calls for “exemplary punishment.”
At this time, Khan faces arrest, a kangaroo show trial, rubber-stamp conviction and imprisonment for truth-telling on phony terrorism-related charges.
Earlier, the UN’s Office of the High Commissioner said there are over 17,000 pending cases under Pakistan’s Anti-Terrorism Act, adding:
It’s “broad definition…coupled with failure to introduce clear guidelines or administrative policies to prevent its arbitrary application, contributed to the overuse, misuse and abuse of this legislation.”
Since his made-in-the-USA no-confidence vote removal from office as Pakistan’s PM, Khan organized and addressed well-attended rallies to set the record straight on what’s going on in the country.
It’s why the empire of lies and puppet Pakistani regime it empowered wants him silenced — most likely the old-fashioned way if what’s going on now fails or falls short.
