Former cricketer and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan has lashed out at Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for making friends with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi while the latter was busy isolating Pakistan in the international community. Speaking to reporters in Islamabad, Khan said, “Narendra Modi wouldn’t have behaved like this had Nawaz Sharif not given him the wrong signals. He didn’t get the time to speak to Hurriyat leaders, but went to Modi’s inauguration as the new leader (in 2014).”

Khan goes on to say that Pakistan would not have been at this stage had Nawaz Sharif shown some leadership qualities. “If he really cared about Pakistan, he wouldn’t have had to create this drama in the joint session.”

Imran Khan also accused the Pakistani Prime Minister of shopping in London while there were tensions at the border. “There is tension at the border and Nawaz Sharif is shopping at Gucci in London,” he said, citing more example of when Sharif was outside the country while it faced tensions.

The speech came after Nawaz Sharif last week called the joint session of bicameral parliament on Wednesday to discuss tensions with India after India conducted surgical strikes on terror launch pads in the Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK). Imran Khan announced that he would boycott the joint session.

The Nawaz Sharif government in Pakistan has warned its military leadership of international isolation that the country is facing, seeking consensus on several key actions by the state.

Last week, Khan had warned Prime Minister Narendra Modi saying Pakistan will stand united in case of war and he should not think all of Pakistan is like Nawaz Sharif.

      Imran is correct.Nawar sharif should not have India's hospitality and pretend to understand what modi's intentions are.Being a straight forward man, Mr.mody thought that he can deal with him but the two faced sharif pulled the rug under the feet of Mr.Modi. Naturally Mr.Modi would have been hurt and angry.Now Nawar sharif has lost on the world stage,his own parlimentarians are not happy and the people in the war affected area are up in arms.Last but lease, the army is between the rock and the hard place as far as the American handouts are concerned.Thanks to their Ambidor to states.

        PM Nawaz Sharif is far matured than Imran Khan, who at age of 62 married 3rd time riding on a horse. This begger comes to India to earn money and talks sweet. He is dalal of Pak military but fast loosing his pority. Current PM and many understanding persons in stan realized the main problem of stan is its military who is looting more than 50 ℅ of GDP of stan for their lifestyle, alas crores of poor and peace loving people are suffering.

            This Jihadi Khan thinks just because he Won a world Cup he has been ordained by the God to be a Leader of a Country,not realizing he is the most STUPID politician around.The issue is the state support to terrorists and terrorism.lt;br/gt;The is tying to humour a mercenary army and trying a cheeky run to reach the PM' office.lt;br/gt;Let him become the PM of a failed state,the world will show him the mirror

                He talks differently in India because he comes to India to get paid a lot of money which he then takes to stan.... that's what all the cricketers and artistes do... come here to make money and take money from Indians (which otherwise would have been paid to another Indian). If they speak badly here, their money is at stake... so its pretty simple why they do U-turns.

                        Imran Khan, neither you nor your nation is relevant to us any longer. It was all only hot air and empty bombast anyway. Go away.

                            stan and Imran must understand their plight is their own doing. Modi had simply highlighted the plight. All for disintegration of stan.

                              Mr. Khan,lt;br/gt;who is hurriyat, let me remind you that they are not the person chosen by public of Jammu and Kashmir. They are not the representatives of JandK. It might be happening in your country to take the view of Taliban before taking taking any action.

                                Imran Khan doesn't have qualms about stan's terror activities in India and he makes tall rhetorics warning Modi who acts as a Prime Minister of India! If Pakstan wags its tail against India, the present Indian PM Modi is not a Manmohan Singh nor a trepidation Congress party! The Govt in India has changed and so are the equations too. It's time that stan behaved itself or else India will teach a lesson which stan will never ever forget!

                                          Nice attempt. Keep searching for answers. Stop keeping your romance and love life and give a thought for the wasted lives of the stani youths. Just because the stani men and nice to stani women or vice versa, no doors of heaven are going to open if they continue to abuse the youths. Malala may have won the nobel prize but to appeal to the stani child producing adults to forget their romance and selfie lives and pay attention to youths, might expose even malala to risk

                                            Imran's utterance show that India has no hope of any sensible dialogue with s. Significant potion of s back their govt and army in what they are doing. The best India can hope for is that Pak disintegrates on its own. Otherwise India will have to do all the work on its own. If India does not do then s will keep on creating trouble for us with increased intensity in coming years. So for now, actively supporting all the rebels in Balochistan and Sindh backed up by relentless action against Jihadis would be the best course of action. We should be able to eliminate a few big organizers of terror activities in next few months. Modi still seems to be going soft on controlling visas being issued to s. This must stop immediately to protect our citizens from risks posed by s.
