Sheikh Rashid terms May 9 events a cursed programme
Rawalpindi: (Suno News) Awami Muslim League (AML) chief Sheikh Rashid said Monday that May 9 events were a cursed programme carried out by cursed people.
He stated these remarks during a media talk after the Lahore High Court (LHC) Rawalpindi Bench ordered to de-seal Lal Haveli while remanding back the decision of the chairman of Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB).
He said that Lal Haveli was his personal property, adding that the funerals of his father and brothers had been taken out from there. “The whole city knows everything.”
Sheikh Rashid said: “Sadaqat Ali Khan had given an excellent judgment on our recovery writ the other day. I leave everything to Allah.”
The AML chief also said: “The CPO knows that I was with him from September 17 to October 22 or he knows where I was.”
The former federal minister declared his support for the Pakistan Army, stating: “Pakistan army is great. Our politics has always been with the army. We never spoke against the army.”
While talking about elections, he said: “I will contest the election on both seats from Rawalpindi. A case was registered on October 5 at Waris Khan police station. If my arrest is required in the case, call me and I will go to the police station myself.”
He declared that May 9 was a cursed programme. “Asim Munir is the pride of the city. We are proud of Nadeem Anjum.”
He added: “If I am arrested, I will fight the election from jail.”
Earlier, the LHC Rawalpindi Bench Monday remanded back the decision of the chairman of Evacuee Trust Property Board (ETPB) and ordered to de-seal Lal Haveli.
The court directed the ETPB to re-hear the Lal Haveli case, stating that the petitions filed by Sheikh Rashid and his brother Sheikh Siddique be heard again.
