However, the controversy over the US lawmaker’s meeting with Imran Khan is now at its peak.
Shirin Mazari, the human rights minister in Imran Khan’s new government, tweeted that US Congressman Ilhan Omar had met the chairman of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) at Bani Gala. They discussed Islam-fear and related issues. Ilhan praised Imran Khan for taking a stand against Islamophobia at the global level. Imran Khan also praised Ilhan for taking a courageous and moral stand on various issues.
Immediately after the meeting with the US lawmaker, Imran Khan was questioned on social media. They also reminded him of his criticism of US officials holding meetings with opposition leaders.
The home minister also recalled Imran Khan’s remarks criticizing the opposition’s meeting with US officials as “conspiratorial”. He also warned that the meeting could be investigated.
Sanaullah said that if Imran Khan did not disclose the details of the meeting on his own, he would investigate it as a minister. Because people should know the truth. Otherwise Imran Khan Niazi will bring another letter to the public in a few days according to his nature.
It is learned that the US lawmaker came to Pakistan not on an administrative but on a personal visit. An official said she had personally arranged the visit as a female member of the US Congress.
