In a significant turn of events, former Federal Minister Dr Shireen Mazari has made a strong statement by condemning acts of violence and announcing her departure from Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) as well as active politics. This decision marks a crucial moment in her political career and has drawn attention from both the media and the public. Dr Mazari’s firm stance against violence and her decision to distance herself from PTI reflect the current political climate in Pakistan. In a parallel development, former provincial minister Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan has also announced his departure from PTI, citing the politics of violence promoted by PTI Chief Imran Khan.
Dr Shireen Mazari’s Condemnation and Departure
Dr Shireen Mazari, a prominent figure in Pakistani politics, expressed her strong condemnation of the recent attacks on military installations and state institutions. During a media interaction in Islamabad on Tuesday, she firmly stated that she is disassociating herself from the politics of PTI. This decision indicates her dissatisfaction with the party’s approach towards tackling violence and maintaining stability.
Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan’s Resignation
In a parallel development, former provincial minister Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan announced his resignation from PTI during a news conference in Islamabad on Tuesday. He expressed deep sadness over the ransacking of military installations and state institutions, which has caused anguish among the entire nation. Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan made it clear that his decision to leave PTI does not signify an exit from politics; rather, he will continue serving the people of Rawalpindi in a different capacity.
Imran Khan’s Politics of Violence
Both Dr Shireen Mazari and Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan have raised concerns regarding the politics of violence propagated by PTI Chief Imran Khan. They believe that Imran Khan has actively encouraged his party members to organize protests in cantonment areas, which has resulted in the recent acts of violence. This observation sheds light on the internal dynamics of PTI and the leadership’s role in shaping the party’s political strategy.
The decisions made by Dr Shireen Mazari and Fayyaz-ul-Hassan Chohan to distance themselves from PTI and its politics of violence highlight the current political landscape in Pakistan. These resignations signify a growing discontent within the party and raise important questions about its future direction. As the nation observes these developments, it remains to be seen how PTI and its leadership will respond to these significant departures.
