Wednesday, September 19th, 2012 12:05:34 by

In quite a shocking development, Iman Hazir Mazari, the daughter of Shireen Mazari, the Central Vice President of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), has announced to part way the party after being insulted by her co-workers, particularly internet warriors.

By writing an article on her blog, she explained reasons of her decision to leave the party.

She wrote that she could tolerate criticism regarding her work, her attitude towards ex-fellow party members and a lot of other things but one thing she had put up with for the last six months was abuse and character assassination.

She noted, “This is something I am simply not ready to tolerate anymore, be it for PTI or anyone else; my respect and principles are more important to me than a party that continues to attack me despite my contributions to it ever since I joined.”

She also criticized policies of the former cricketer saying, “I feel Imran Khan has lost touch with the poverty-stricken and neglected population of not only Southern Punjab, but Pakistan, as a whole.”

Commenting on the social work projects she was working on, she added, “Until that day, health, education, women’s rights and other projects that I had been working on in Pakistan will not come to an end. In fact, with no party affiliation, I am in a more credible position to carry out my work.”

The youngster also flayed criticism at the party leadership saying that slogans of change wouldn’t make any sense without any concrete policy. “I sincerely pray internal party elections result in the removal of damaging elements from within PTI”, she added.

Apart from politics, she commended the role of Imran Khan in social work projects. She also gave appreciation to the work that the Imran Khan Foundation and Shaukat Khanum are engaging in.

She, however, said that Imran Khan should remember who he was 15 years ago and what vision he had because it is no longer exists in the party.

In her concluding remarks she stated, “What are considered “electables” aren’t what Pakistan needs – what we need is an honest and focused leader who will stick to his initial convictions and beliefs even when offered the short cut.”

It is vital to mention here that Shireen Mazari lashed out at Imran Khan for not paying a scheduled visit to Rajanpur, the most affected area by devastating floods.
