Wajihuddin said if someone's rights have been violated, he should file a case himself

KARACHI (Dunya News) – Former Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Justice (r) Wajihuddin Ahmed on Thursday said that "I have spoken nothing but the truth."

It may be recalled that Wajihuddin had claimed that Prime Minister Imran Khan s monthly household expenses were borne by PTI leader Jahangir Tareen.

Qaumi Ittehad Party chief Justice (retd) Wajihuddin reached Bahadurabad, the headquarters of the ruling coalition partner Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM), where he met members of the MQM Coordinating Committee and then held a joint press conference.

Speaking on the occasion along with MQM leaders, he said that they have agreed to work together, adding that he had spoken nothing but truth.

“File a defamation suit against me, the courts are open but the question is whether my words have violated the rights of Federal Minister for Information Fawad Chaudhry or Imran Khan,” he said and added if someone s rights have been violated, he should file a case himself.

Earlier, addressing a press conference, Federal Minister for Information Chaudhry Fawad Hussain said that the government had decided to file a defamation suit against Wajihuddin Ahmed for his baseless claim about expenditures of Bani Gala residence of Prime Minister Imran Khan.

He said that Article 9 of the Constitution gave the right of self-respect and dignity to every citizen but in Pakistan, this right was blatantly violated in both traditional and social media.

The minister said that notices would also be issued to those media houses which telecast the baseless allegations of Justice Wajihuddin without any verification.

Dignity and honour of the Prime Minister of Pakistan was not safe what to speak of the common man, he said adding that the baseless propaganda was spread about the prime minister’s family life and Bani Gala house.

Fawad said the person who was favored by the prime minister and nominated as a presidential candidate attacked the prime minister through the claim that Jehangir Tareen bore the expenditure of Imran’s residence.
