Javed Miandad Slams Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan
The former Pakistani cricketer blamed Khan for running the country shoddily and failing to address pertinent issues
Ex-Pakistani cricketer Javed Miandad has slammed Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan in a video yesterday. Miandad, whose son is married to dreaded don Dawood Ibrahim’s daughter, has openly called out the PM for ruining the country. Talking about the deteriorating employment situation in the nation and indicating that he helped him become prime minister, the former cricket captain challenged Khan to come forward and deny the allegations made by him.
It is known that Miandad’s proximity to Dawood, who has been hiding in Pakistan for years together, gives the ex-cricketer the confidence to openly curse the government. Just eight months back, Miandad had called Khan a beggar on a television show.
In what looks like a friend-turned-foe case, Miandad reminded the PM that he was his captain, referring to their cricket days. He also added that he will enter politics, probably indicating that he would contest for the Prime Minister’s post soon. Khan has not commented on the matter yet.
Miandad has used his close ties with Dawood to his advantage. Back in October 2015, cricketer Shahid Afridi was forced by the mafia king to take the media to the senior cricketer’s house and apologise publicly for some alleged misbehaviour by him towards Miandad.
