ISLAMABAD: Captain (r) Safdar, son-in-law of ousted Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif, said Tuesday that he only believes in Allah’s angels instead of military angels.
While talking to reporters outside the accountability court, Safdar said, “My belief in Allah’s angels is strong, but I cannot say the same for military angels.”
He said that someone had aired a television programme which accused him of giving Rs 50 million to an unknown person, adding that a honourable judge had taken notice of this matter, for which he was thankful to the court.
“I am chairman of the Standing Committee on Information Technology; therefore, I will also seek a reply about the incident from Pakistan Telecommunication Authority,” he added.
Replying to a question about Faizabad sit-in, Safdar said that present day sit-ins were held in the name of music concerts and entertainment, but the Faizabad sit-in was organised to provide a gathering to people where they could recite poetry in praise of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), also known as “Mehfil-e-Milad”.
Replying to another question regarding news that the Punjab Rangers had given Rs 1,000 each to every protestor allowed to return home, Safdar said that his party had given Rs 5,000 each to every protestor as bus fare while the Rangers could only manage to distribute Rs 1,000 per head.
