ISLAMABAD: A video clip of Ali Amin Gandapur, who was nominated by Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) founder chairman Imran Khan for the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) chief minister’s slot, went viral on Saturday.

In a conversation with a PTI worker, he was seen making derogatory remarks about Maulana Fazlur Rehman and talking about sending him to an asylum. Various political and non-political circles, including JUIF, reacted strongly to the video clip. In the video, Gandapur is holding the hand of a young activist and also encouraging and supporting his proposal to display the pictures of Returning Officers involved in alleged rigging on the ‘Wall of Shame’.

The nominated chief minister of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa is instructing the worker to first expel the returning officer from here and then put pictures on the “Wall of Shame”.

In response to the worker’s question that Maulana Fazlur Rahman is much confused these days, Ali Amin Gandapur replied that Maulana Fazlur Rahman has gone mad and will be put in an asylum.

Aslam Ghori, the central spokesperson of JUIF, described Ali Amin Gandapur as a mentally unbalanced person and said in his response that the leader of a major political party, who is soon to occupy the most important position of the province, uttered what cannot be expected. He said, “Then his intention to display the pictures of returning officers on the highways under the title Wall of Shame reflects the vindictive ambitions of the most degenerate thinking.”
