○What is Naya Pakistan? : Imran Khan Speech at Dera Ghazi Khan
【Dera Ghazi Khan】"Naya Pakistan" was a patriotic political slogan and a revolutionary song composed by guitarist Salman Ahmad and sung by the late Junaid Jamshed for the PTI party led by Imran Khan. The term "Naya Pakistan" translates from Urdu to "New Pakistan", a reference to the party's platform which calls for a radical restructuring of the governance system of Pakistan.(EverybodyWiki)
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI)is a centrist political party in Pakistan founded in 1996 by former international cricket captain and current Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan. (Wikipedia)
Imran Khan, the chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), asked the people of Dera Ghazi Khan, a city in the Punjab province of Pakistan, "Do u want a Naya Pakistan?" on January 15 2017.
What is Naya Pakistan? Let me tell you; especially my youth here today. Naya Pakistan is going back to the real ideology of Pakistan; why Pakistan was made. Why did we struggle for partition? Because we were to become a model Islamic Welfare State. We were to become that region in the subcontinent that would become a model for justice and tolerance. The ideals of Islamic values of justice and equality that would have made us a model nation. A nation where every human being got his right; every human being. Where every human being is equal in front of the law; whether it is a common man of DG Khan and whether it is a powerful landlord of DG Khan. A man who lives in a shack, a man who drives a rickshaw, a man who pushes a cart... everyone has equal rights. And a society where those who are blessed with more take care of those who are needy. Where the powerful help those who need education, health, opportunities.
In the west a poor man can get the best treatment and free treatment, the best education, and the best justice in their courts. These are called welfare states where everyone is given equal opportunity.
Across the west, there is the system of welfare states in Europe. Unfortunately, there is no justice here; one law for the powerful and one for the poor Man.
I want to tell Saif Khosa (one of the residents in the constituency); that when PTI comes into power the law will be equal for you and for the common rickshaw driver and anyone on the street. Bringing the powerful under the law will be my responsibility. And bringing justice to the poor will be our responsibility too. InshAllah we will make Pakistan into that country where people will come searching for jobs! – Imran Khan
○Can no longer defend, justify Imran Khan: Salman Ahmad
【Karachi】After Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chief Imran Khan's surprise press conference in Karachi on March 19 2018, where he welcomed Aamir Liaquat to the fold, staunch supporters are voicing their concerns.
Musician Salman Ahmad, who has supported the party for 35 years, said he can no longer justify Imran's decisions. Taking to Twitter, he stated "After 35 years of defending, supporting and justifying Imran Khan to the world, I no longer can. I fear the reptiles surround him."
The Junoon guitarist however, was not the only one unhappy with the party's recent developments. Adil Ansari, a part of the social media team of PTI said, this was "not the PTI I joined" and "with Aamir Liaquat types joining PTI, I don't see light at the end of the tunnel."
