[DAWN] Pakistain Tehrik-e-Insaf|
...a political party in Pakistan. PTI was founded by former Pakistani cricket captain and philanthropist Imran Khan. The party's slogan is
Justice, Humanity and Self Esteem, each of which is open to widely divergent interpretations....
(PTI) front man Naeemul Haque on Thursday defended his stance over calling Afghan Taliban chief Mullah Mansour a 'martyr'.
"Fighting to liberate your homeland is a just cause," Naeem told Dawn.com, a day after he spoke on a television show and called the head of the outlawed Taliban a 'martyr'.
The PTI front man told Dawn.com he believes 'shaheed' (martyr) is a "political term" and even Indian Moslem soldiers killed in Kargil
... three months of unprovoked Pak aggression, over 4000 dead Paks, another victory for India ...
by Pak forces were called 'shaheed'.
He justified his position by saying that till a few weeks ago Pak authorities were talking to the same Afghan Taliban in Murree in the presence of American and Afghan officials.
