KARACHI: Information Minister Qamar Zaman Kaira on Saturday said Malala Yousufzai was symbolic of the school of thought followed by Zulfikar Ali Bhutto and Benazir Bhutto, adding that, the Pakistan Muslim League – Nawaz (PML-N) followed the school of thought of the Taliban, DawnNews reported.

Speaking at a press conference in Karachi, Kaira said PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif had also been accused of taking funds from Osama bin Laden.

The minister added that in the wake of the Supreme Court's verdict in the Asghar Khan case, the government elected as a result of the 1990 elections had lost its legal standing.

He said both governments headed by Benazir Bhutto were overthrown through bogus mandate.

Kaira added that advertising campaigns using fake names had also been run against the PPP.

The minister added that Ghulam Mustafa Jatoi was used during the campaign for the creation of the Islami Jamhoori Ittehad (IJI) and was later discarded in order to bring in Nawaz Sharif as the prime minister.
