Will make sure no one is wrongly accused, killed over blasphemy charges: Imran Khan

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chairman Imran Khan on Tuesday said those responsible for Mashal Khan’s murder will be given exemplary punishment.

“Mashal Khan did not commit blasphemy, it has been confirmed it was a conspiracy against him,” said Imran during a press conference alongside Mashal’s grieving father Iqbal Khan.

“No matter which party the suspects belong to, they will be punished,” he assured, adding that investigation is underway to arrest those responsible for the murder. “We will make sure those involved in the murder and those who conspired against Mashal will be held accountable and it will become an example in Pakistan.

“As a father, I can understand the pain of Mashal’s parents,” he said.
“Those involved in the killing and the conspiracy need to be exposed.
Mashal was killed on the pretext and under the garb of blasphemy,” Imran added.

The PTI chief said the entire country saw what the university students did with Mashal. “Even animals don’t behave this way,” he said. “I will ensure justice for Mashal’s death.

It is commendable that people across Pakistan, regardless of their religious or political background, have demanded the accused to be punished.
