Imran Khan Defends Controversial Tweets About Hamood-ur-Rehman Commission in FIA Inquiry

Former Pakistani Prime Minister and PTI founder Imran Khan has defended his controversial tweets about the Hamood-ur-Rehman Commission. These tweets have become the subject of legal scrutiny.

In response to a Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) inquiry about a contentious tweet from his official Twitter account, posted after the Al-Qadir Trust case hearing at Adiala Jail, Imran Khan affirmed ownership of the tweet. He explained that he couldn’t post a video while in jail and hadn’t seen the video mentioned in the tweet, hence he refrained from further comments, according to Business Recorder.

Khan remarked, “The same is being repeated in the country today.”

On Friday, an FIA team interrogated Khan in Adiala Jail.

Khan elaborated that the Hamoodur Rahman Commission Report had two main goals, one of which was to avoid repeating the errors that led to the 1971 war and the creation of Bangladesh. He pointed out that the commission blamed former President Yahya Khan for actions aimed at extending his rule, which contributed to the disastrous events.

Khan admitted that he had previously compared Nawaz Sharif to Mujibur Rahman concerning the Hamoodur Rahman Commission report but clarified that he hadn’t read the report at that time. He has now read the report while in jail.

He lauded the PTI’s social media team, referring to them as “heroes,” and insisted that he would only answer FIA questions about the controversial tweet in the presence of his legal team.

Khan demanded an apology from the FIA for the false “cipher case” filed against him before he would respond to their inquiries.

“I have been kept in a death cell with no facility except an exercise machine,” he complained about his jail conditions, noting that air coolers are available in all cells. He contrasted this with the imprisonment conditions of President Asif Ali Zardari and former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, who he claimed were given ‘luxury suites’ and allowed outside food, whereas he has to eat meals prepared by prisoners.

During the hearing of the £190 million National Crime Agency (NCA) scam case, known as the Al-Qadir Trust case, Khan’s lawyer, Barrister Salman Safdar, objected to the appointment of a new Accountability Court judge, Muhammad Ali Warraich. The court listened to arguments from both the defense and the NAB prosecutor and reserved its judgment on the objection until June 11.
