Khawaja Asif denies allegations, says he has nothing to do with “such vengeful politics”

SIALKOT: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leader Usman Dar’s mother has levelled serious allegations against Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) leader Khawaja Asif, accusing him of being behind the attack on her house.

Appealing to Chief Justice of Pakistan (CJP) Qazi Faez Isa to take action on the matter, Dar’s mother said: “I was asleep at home when Khawaja Asif had my house attacked again. [They] broke the door and entered my house.”

She further said that she was manhandled, adding that her shirt was torn and her hair was pulled as well.

Dar’s mother said come what may she would file the nomination papers for the upcoming general elections — slated to take place on February 8 next year.

“When they heard that I was submitting my nomination papers, they [Khawaja Asif] sent 20 people to my house who manhandled me. No one can force me into submitting to do what they want,” she said, adding that she would even contest the polls if she was put behind bars.

‘I have nothing to do with vengeful politics’: Asif

Meanwhile, Asif, while responding to the allegations, said that he has nothing to do with “such vengeful politics”.

“I have always respected my political rivals and their families. My wife has faced three dozen court appearances and false cases have been made against my son who has no affiliation to politics,” added the former defence minister.
