PTI chief Imran Khan has strongly criticized the brutal killing of PTI leader Zahra Shahid Hussain outside her house in DHA Karachi. In a statement released here, Imran Khan stated that he held Altaf Hussain directly accountable for the murder as he had publicly threatened PTI workers and leaders through public broadcasts.
Imran said, “I also hold the British government responsible as I had warned them to act against Altaf Hussain after his open threats to kill PTI workers. Unfortunately the British government did nothing to stop his calls to violence and killings.”
Imran Khan mentioned that Zahra Apa as she was known to all within the party, was an old and senior party leader who was a mentor to the PTI youth and a committed ideological leader of the party. “I am totally shocked and deeply saddened and still cannot believe anyone would kill such a gentle lady,” he added.
