Actions and policies of ousted ex-PM #ImranKhan and his #PTIGovernment have led to arrests, denial of jobs, travel bans, and deportations of Pakistanis from #Turkey #UAE #France #SaudiArabia #China. All in just three years. The latest is Saudi crackdown on pro-Khan Pakistanis. /1
In April, ex-PM #ImranKhan's incitement was responsible for Pakistanis getting radicalized in two countries: #Turkey+#SaudiArabia. 🇹🇷 arrested 27 pro-Khan Pakistanis on Apr 12. 🇸🇦 has repeatedly arrested Khan sympathizers in 2019+2020+2021 & 2022. /2
In 2020, PM #ImranKhan's followers launched online campaign against #Arab-#Israel peace agreement #AbrahamAccords, radicalizing young Pakistanis in the #Gulf who protested on streets in #UAE & #SaudiArabia, leading to loss of jobs, expulsions, visa bans/3

#Pakistan's top security forum, the #NSC, attended by top Govt, military, and intelligence officials, chaired by PM @CMShehbaz, concludes there is no "foreign conspiracy" behind ex-PM #ImranKhan's exit from power after he lost parliamentary majority and was voted out. /1
Ex-PM #ImranKhan's conspiracy claim debunked by #Pakistan's top security forum:

"NSC discussed telegram from 🇵🇰 Emb in 🇺🇸 (...) informed by premier security agencies they found no evidence of any conspiracy (...) The NSC (...) concludes there has been no foreign conspiracy." /2
Today's National Security Committee of the Cabinet is more credible than the Mar 31 meet that ex-PM #ImranKhan politicized. This meeting is strengthened by the presence of Amb @asadmk17, ex-Washington, the Amb who wrote the cable and briefed the NSC. /3

A probe is underway into links bw #Pakistan's former Amb in Washington to then #PTIGovernment. Probe to determine if Amb was a candidate for appointment as Foreign Secretary. His diplomatic cable was compromised to produce a #US conspiracy claim used by ex-PM to create a crisis.
Determining the nature of links between the former Ambassador in Washington and the #PTI-led government is key to understanding his role in creating a serious constitutional, political, and foreign policy crisis that has unsettled #Pakistan. /2

The Ambassador is a consummate diplomat who reconnected Pakistani public diplomacy with the Washington elite and American society in a new way after a long break. How his good work was converted into a hit job targeting #Pakistan-#US ties will inevitably face scrutiny. /3

I have a few words to say:
I unreservedly and unqualifiedly support #BalochRights and hope to continue doing so.
That I comment on what happens here is because I live here and I sink or swim with all; I intend to stay here regardless.
That the #PTIGovernment
was ousted is something to be happy about because it wasn't an individual but a cabal of arrogant incompetents who played with lives and futures of all and deserved to be ousted the way they were.
That said, the new isn't new but the old and should be assessed not on what
it says and promises but see what it does for there have been too many unkept and broken promises to take them at their word
کویئی تمہاری تم یوں جوٹھے وعدے کرتا

#Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs faced internal upheaval under PM #ImranKhan's Government. Today, top Pakistani diplomats have conveyed to #PTIGovernment their strong reservations on reports that PM Khan plans to make public a confidential diplomatic cable public.
The cable does not contain any evidence of an international conspiracy. Pakistani diplomats and law enforcement are now convinced PM #ImranKhan Government has created this ruse to take to the public as a coverup for his governance failures.
There is concern in Pak circles that this international conspiracy ruse could be part of a wider plan to damage #Pakistan's decades-long international relations. There are signs PM Khan Govt pursued variations of this agenda since 2019, sparking to multiple foreign policy crises.

Ex #US Special Rep for #Afghanistan Reconciliation @ZalmayKhalilz met #Pakistan Army #COAS Gen #QamarBajwa today and "pledged to play his role for further improvement in 🇺🇸 diplomatic coop with 🇵🇰 at all levels," acc to a military statement. Khalilzad is attending @IsbDialogue.
Army chief #COAS Gen #QamarBajwa takes a clear stand on #Pakistan's vital interests at @IsbDialogue:

"Sadly, #Russia's invasion of #Ukraine is unfortunate" and 🇵🇰 "shares a long and strategic relationship with 🇺🇸 which remains our largest export market."

A day earlier, PM #ImranKhan at @IsbDialogue advised #Pakistan to consider following the example of sanctions-hit #Cuba, addressing Islamabad's policy elite, taking his ideological aversion of the West to a new level:

PM #ImranKhan sets the stage for his legacy in a huge, impressive rally in #Islamabad, characterizing himself as a living martyr facing off international conspiracy to unseat him. He did not offer evidence but waved a document as proof. The rally achieves its two targets.. /1
PM #ImranKhan achieves two targets: to try impress power centers within the country that he remains popular, which he partially does (with diehard voters); and to engage those voters in a larger foreign policy issue beyond electoral accountability of performance & governance. /2
Aside from the secret document that PM #ImranKhan is not revealing (yet) to protect national interest, it is not a secret that his biggest foreign policy confrontations occurred with the #KSA #UAE #France, and misunderstandings with #China. /3

#SaudiArabia decides to shore up the economically shaky govt of PM @ImranKhanPTI with a generous $4.2 billion package after "the issuance of kind guidance," according to Saudi news agency; in royal reference to @KingSalman
#SaudiArabia generously bails out PM @ImranKhanPTI for a second time in 3 years. This time with $3B deposit with @StateBank_Pak + $1.2B oil on deferred terms. #KSA bailed out PM Khan in Oct 2018 with a $6B package when #PTIGovernment faced economic meltdown in first year in power Image
By shoring up PM @ImranKhanPTI Govt again, #SaudiArabia is outdoing itself. The aid is significant coming just ten months after #KSA requested repayment on the previous aid []; a year after frosty ties w/ Khan govt after it appeared to line up angst Riyadh.

نور مقدم کیس میں اک آڈیو لیک ہوئی ہے
جس کے مطابق مجرم جعفر نے لندن میں اپنی والدہ یہ بھی ایسی ہی کوشش کی تھی
پرتشدد ہوا تھا مگر مارنے میں کامیاب نہ ہوسکآ
نور جعفر کی دفعہ وہ بدقسمتی سے کآمیاب ہوگیا اور مار ڈآلا
آڈیو کے مطابق 2019میں اسلام آباد میں اک گھر میں پارٹی
پارٹی کے دوران چار لڑکیاں قتل ہوئیں تھیں جس کی کوئی روپورٹ نہ درج ہوئی نہ یہ کیس منظر عام پہ آ سکا
وہ گھر جہاں پارٹی ہوئی وہ ظاہر جعفر کا تھا
ایسے ایسے نفسیاتی تشدد پسند ہمارے ارگرد پائے جاتے ہیں
اور ہم لاعلم رہتے ہیں

Since 2019, every day in #Pakistan sees new red lines crossed in military-bashing. The latest involves ridicule of top spy chief amid rising impression of state-media open clash. No one expected this to happen in PM #ImranKhan Govt, which started as friendliest to media+military.
This military-bashing, and dragging the top spy chief through the mud, is probably damaging for #Pakistan's military (both criticism & trolls-led defense). #PTIGovernment is distancing itself from this mess (Hint: see last grab here).
This military-bashing and dragging of spy chief's name through the mud in the most personal way possible is a serious matter, underlined by this rare official public comment by #ISI on the controversy, and the pushback through trolls & allies.

Blowback & retaliation anticipated today (#Friday) for #PTIGovernment banning #TLP. Mosques & seminaries/madrassas continue to operate beyond #Pakistani state's authority & control. Large scale #protests by TLP supporters & sympathizers expected nationwide after #Jummah prayers.
Taking a leaf out of #France's book, #TLP supporters on #socialmedia are using the hashtag #IAmSaadHussainRizvi (#IamSaadHusaainRizvi - with a spelling mistake - is also trending).
It seems like decades ago, but does anyone else remember #JeSuisCharlie #IAmCharlieHebdo from 2015?
Not sure whether this is the 'official' account, but pretty sure this is how it starts...

@ShkhRasheed stuttered while admitting #TLP was more prepared than #Pakistan #government, but went on to say that #PTIGovernment has decided to #BanTLP and the requisite file will be sent to the Federal Cabinet.
#TLPNationWideProtest #TLPterrorists
#TLPGoons were NEVER serious in negotiations with #PTIGovernment: they focused on maximum pressure thru militant violence by showing their 'street power' at EVERY opportunity. Their goal was to force out ALL #European diplomats, not just #French ambassador, from #Pakistan

Prime Minister #ImranKhan barely survived a no-confidence vote & a fierce opposition alliance this month; gets a breather thanks to opposition #PPP's decision not to rock the system in #Pakistan, for now. But his weak cabinet is a year overdue for a shakeup, saved by #COVID. /1
#PTIGovernment cabinet change was expected early 2020 but pandemic response+ economic situation delayed decision until autumn, when opposition alliance #PDM seized national narrative from the govt. Now, after Senate election, tough decisions are due. /2
The #PTI government could have kicked off its 5-year tenure on a strong footing had it made this decision 25 months ago. Better late than never but a lot of damage has been done. Tough task awaits a young capable minister. /3

So, the #PTIGovernment is really very upset about the rising cost of pay and pensions in the federal government. Let me share a budget document with you all which shows the total cost of “Civilian” pension is PKR 470 Bn. for FY 2020-21, out of which cost of “Military pensions” Image
being paid amounting to Rs. 359 Bn, whereas, the estimate of total civilian pensions is Rs. 111 Bn.

If you all didn’t know, the expenditure of pension of military personnel is incurred from the civil current expenditure.

This amount is in addition to
1,289 Bn. defence budget allocated for the FY 2020-21 as against an allocation of Rs. 1,152 Bn. allocated for the previous year. This is a 12% increase in the defence affairs and services budget despite the fact that we are in the middle of a pandemic and approx. GDP Image

I watched the show #BreakingPoint, where @MalickViews had invited @Kashifabbasiary and @HamidMirPAK to discuss yesterday's presser of #MaryamSafdar, lo and behold, Mir was more fiery and aggressive than any other hardcore #PMLN supporter. @fsherjan @MirMAKOfficial @alisalmanalvi
I couldn't believe a word he said, then I went over to @SdqJaan's YT channel and fortunately, he dissected the whole program for me. Mir Sb lied 25 times according to Saddique Jan during the whole program. Even I noticed how he was jumping the gun, not letting Kashif Abbasi
finish his arguments. Everyone of you need to watch both these video programs, and decide for yourself. The man clearly having an agenda and his lies were exposed by a young court reporter, and I salute young this young man for being so outspoken and letting Mir Sb know

Despite giving -ve ratings to #PTIGovernment on economy + foreign policy & saying that the previous gov was better, majority Pakistanis are satisfied with IK’s gov. #ImranKhan's own popularity is stable & generally most Pakistanis are willing to give more time to the current gov.
61% Pakistanis say they miss #NawazSharif's government; only 31% want PML-N government to return.
Curbing of #Corruption and Terrorism also gets positive rating from majority of Pakistanis.
