In the midst of an ongoing crackdown on Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) members, Imran Khan, the former prime minister and party chief, has stated that he finds satisfaction in the challenge of fighting against the coalition government led by Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N).
During an interview with Vice News, Imran was asked if he enjoys the fight against the government, to which he responded positively. He explained, “I think if I woke up and there was no challenge in my life, I would think it’s the end of my life.”
In the past, Imran survived an attempt on his life in Wazirabad, and he continues to assert that the threat of assassination looms over him. He alleges that the three individuals responsible for the attack are still in power. Though he did not name anyone, Imran claimed that those who conspired to kill him are now more worried because they know that whenever the elections are held, his party will win.
The crackdown on PTI members has escalated in recent weeks, with numerous arrests and detentions. The opposition accuses the government of attempting to suppress their voices and maintain their grip on power, while the government maintains that it is taking action against those who have broken the law.
