LAHORE: Chairman Pakistan Teheek-e-Insaf (PTI), Imran Khan Sunday appealed to his party workers to stand fast against the brutalities, come what may, Geo News reported.
"Zahra Shahid Hussain did not lay down her life for nothing. Her sacrifice will not go in vain", said Khan in a latest video message to PTI workers from the hospital where he is recovering from the injuries received in a fall at a pre-poll rally.
Going forward, an adamant PTI chief said the city of Karachi was being controlled by mongering fear among people.
Khan announced that PTI would launch a protest movement against the cold-blooded murder of PTI leader, Zahra Shahid Hussain, tomorrow (Monday), adding he himself would lead the demos in Karachi as soon as he was out of the hospital.
"I regret that I would not be able to join the protest demonstrations in Karachi right now, but hopefully I will be rubbing shoulders with you as soon as doctors discharge me from the hospital", said he addressing to his workers.
During the video message he reiterated his last night's stance of holding MQM leader Altaf Hussain directly responsible for the killing of Zahra Hussain and British police indirectly.
"I hold Altaf Hussain responsible for this murder as he had openly threatened my workers with dire consequences for staging sit-ins against vote rigging. And UK police is also to be blame as it did nothing to stop a British citizen from voicing such vicious things", Khan said.
Khan added that for the sake of the "continuance" of this democratic process, he was not insisting upon a reelection, but the vote rigging, which he said was the worst in the history of Pakistan should be investigated thoroughly.
"I am not asking for a re-poll because I want this system to endure, however if this outrageous ballot-fudging goes un-probed the people will take to the streets", said he.
