PESHAWAR: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) or Pakistan movement for justice chief, Imran Khan implied that a national uprising like Egypt and Tunisia can also happen in Pakistan and asked his young followers to be ready for coming out on streets, DawnNews reported on Wednesday.

Khan said while speaking to his young party workers in Peshawar that the corrupt rulers of Egypt and Tunisia did not leave their people any other option but to come out on streets for protests against corruption.

The situation in Pakistan was not much different as well, as more and more people were becoming suicide bombers because of US drone attacks, said Khan. “If someone kills my wife and kids, then I cannot be blamed for becoming a suicide bomber,” he added.

Khan criticised the government by saying that there were more US agents rooming around in the country like Raymond Davis because the government had allowed them to.

Imran Khan further said that Shumaila --the widow of one of the assassinated Pakistanis Faheem-- would have become suicide attacker herself, but she knew that would have been wrong too.
