ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan claimed on Wednesday that on his return from Sunday's massive rally in Lahore, he was offered Rs 3 billion but he rejected them, saying "he is not for sale".

Imran Khan, however, did not give details as to why he was offered such a huge amount and for what. The PTI on Wednesday marked Women's Day at the protest sit-in. Addressing the participants of the sit-in at D Chowk atop his container, the PTI chief acknowledged that he has gotten his present position due to the training of his mother and he always respected the women.

He claimed he never misbehaved with any women "and today we have specially observed Women's Day". He appreciated attendance of women at the PTI sit-in. He said that every civilised society of the world respects women and their rights and that "Naya Pakistan" would set the precedent of respecting women and their rights.

"We should not import values from Indian films because of the fact that they copy English culture and are destroying ours," Imran pleaded. He said a foreign society may be ahead of ours in technology, but it may not respect women the way Pakistanis do. He said that "bad values prevailed in Pakistani society due to films of Bollywood" and said women should be respected in civilised societies.

"We have most women attendants in sit-ins." Imran deplored that the Pakistani society, instead of adopting the path of evolution, has fallen prey to backwardness. He said everything that comes from Europe is not always good. "The extent of respect which Islam and Pakistani give to their mothers is not known in Europe," Imran Khan said.
