ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan has on Thursday defended his use of ‘laanath’ for parliament by saying that given the context it was actually a mild word to use.

In a series of tweets, Imran Khan said that when a parliament passes a person-specific law in order to allow him to head a party despite having been disqualified by the Supreme Court over ‘Rs 3 bn money laundering, tax evasion, concealment of assets, forgery & perjury’, the parliament deserved the ‘laanath’.

When a Parliament, which must protect nation’s interests, passes a person-specific law allowing a disqualified person guilty of Rs 3 bn money laundering, tax evasion, concealment of assets, forgery & perjury to become head of a pol party, then such a law is a “laanath” on Parl.

He went on to say that the word was in fact quite mild in this specific context and then challenged those who disagreed to do a public poll in order to learn what the public actually thought about the parliament.

In fact in this specific context “laanath” is a mild word to use. If anyone disagrees, I challenge them to do a public poll on what ppl think of such a Parliament. I can guarantee most will condemn it.
