Imran Khan is not reading the writing on the wall. He is fighting a losing battle against former Army Chief Gen (Rtd) Qamar Javed Bajwa. He is competing with someone who has nothing to lose. Gen Bajwa is now a retired Army officer who cannot become Prime Minister of Pakistan. Khan is a politician and he can become Prime Minister again. Why is he making stunning allegations against a person who was blamed for manipulating 2018 elections in support of Khan? Is he trying to blackmail the new Army Chief General Syed Asim Munir by targeting Gen Bajwa? Will he survive disqualification and arrest by attacking the most powerful institution in Pakistan? I have known Imran Khan since 1989 when he was only a cricketer. He always used offence as the best defence in cricket. I advised him in 1995 not to enter politics and focus on social service. I wanted to see him as an undisputed cricket hero who won the 1992 World Cup for Pakistan. I feared that his playboy image and illegitimate children may become hurdles for his politics but he never listened to me. He joined politics and started bowling bouncers to his political opponents. Now he is using bouncers against the Pakistan Army. Interestingly, Imran Khan defended Gen Bajwa many times when the former Army Chief was under fire from Nawaz Sharif. In 2020 Khan said that Nawaz Sharif was playing the game of Indian PM Narendra Modi by attacking the Pakistan Army. In October 2022, Imran Khan proposed to give another extension to Gen Bajwa till the new election but he took a U-turn and changed his stance within three months.In a fresh attack on Gen Bajwa, the ousted Prime Minister of Pakistan has alleged that the former Army Chief wanted to get him killed and impose a state of emergency in the country. Before that he also accused Gen Bajwa of playing double games against his government and admitted that he committed a big mistake by extending the tenure of then Army Chief in 2019. Khan forgot that he himself rose to power by playing double games. It is not a secret that he was not elected but selected for the premiership of Pakistan by a group of Army Generals who hated Nawaz Sharif and Asif Ali Zardari. Gen Bajwa himself admitted the unconstitutional role of Army in the Pakistani politics just few days before his retirement and assured that the Army will remain apolitical in the future. Imran Khan is not ready to believe Gen Bajwa and recently claimed that Gen Bajwa’s setup is still active in the establishment.
