After Prime Minister Imran Khan’s fire bouncers at US President Donald Trump’s defamatory statements against Pakistan, former minister for defence and Pakistan Muslim League (PML-N) leader Khawaja Muhammad Asif, also responded Trump by saying that now pakistan will do what is best for its people and interests.
“Pak has suffered enough fighting US’s war. Now we will do what is best for our people & our interests,” he said. “We continue to pay in blood for what we did for the USA from Budbher to fighting wars which weren’t ours.” Khawaja Asif further tweeted, “Reinvented our religion to suit US interests, destroyed our tolerant ethos, replaced it with bigotry & intolerance. A relationship of betrayals & sanctions.”
Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari on Monday has responded to Trump and tweeted,: “Trump’s tirade against Pak & his claim that that Pak does not do “a damn thing” for the US shd be a lesson for those Pak ldrs who kept appeasing the US esp after 9/11! The renditions; the loss of Pak lives in US WoT; the free space for Raymond Davis & other operatives; etc etc”
“The illegal killings by drone attacks; the list is endless but once again history shows appeasement does not work. Also, whether China or Iran, US policies of containment & isolation do not coincide with Pak strategic interests”, she wrote.
Earlier US President Donald Trump on Sunday, during an interview, badly criticized Pakistan and said that Pakistan had helped Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden hide near the garrison city.
“You know, living — think of this — living in Pakistan, beautifully in Pakistan in what I guess they considered a nice mansion, I don’t know, I’ve seen nicer. But living in Pakistan right next to the military academy, everybody in Pakistan knew he was there,” Trump said, referring to bin Laden and his former compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. “They took him down but — look, look, there’s news right there, he lived in Pakistan, we’re supporting Pakistan, we’re giving them $1.3 billion a year, which we don’t give them anymore, by the way, I ended it because they don’t do anything for us, they don’t do a damn thing for us,” Trump responded.
The United States has already canceled $300 million in aid to Pakistan for its lack of decisive action against militant groups.
