Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Sindh President Ali Haider Zaidi announced on Saturday his decision to quit politics and resign from positions within the party.

The initial purpose for joining politics was to contribute to the betterment of Pakistan, he said in a video message.

Affirming his commitment to serving the country, Ali said he has already condemned the May 9 incidents.

“Whatever happened was wrong, and all those responsible should be brought to justice regardless of who was involved in it,” he said.

“After much deliberation, I have made the decision to quit politics. Consequently, when I step away from politics, I will also tender my resignation from positions held within the PTI, including my role as an MNA and core committee member.”

“I will bring foreign investments. I have been doing this, bringing foreign exchange and exports to the country, in the past before joining politics.

“I want to again do this. I bid farewell to politics. Pakistan Armed Forces Zindabad, Pakistan Zindabad.”

Following Imran Khan’s arrest, Zaidi was also detained by the Sindh police on May 9.

Zaidi was reportedly arrested from Kalapul in Karachi where he was leading PTI workers’ protest against Imran’s arrest.

Since Imran’s arrest and subsequent bail, several PTI leaders and supporters have been detained and later released.

Moreover, dozens of lawmakers and senior politicians have left the party. The resignations include founding members, core committee leads, media strategists, and members of the social media teams, all of whom have been seen as crucial to the party.

These include Fawad Chaudhry, Asad Umar, Dr Shireen Mazari, Fayyaz Chohan and others.

The issue is that these are professionals who came into politics for betterment of the country. When their families were threatened and put in jail they also gave up. When those hoping to become martyrs turn into mercenaries this is bound to happen.

Reprogramming. Typically carried out using videos of the reprogrammed themselves, and videos of what will happen if they are not reprogrammed successfully. It always works

PTI's Rodents had crossed the Red line in lust and love of their Pied Piper. They messed up the tunes of the Pied Piper and now, they are doomed to seclusion. Any patriotic Pakistani could never bear to see even a glimpse of disrespect meted out to martyrs and soldiers. Martyrs disrespect must never be forgotten and pardoned. The houses of all those culprits must be burnt to ashes. Whatever is happening to PTI, it is very very well deserved. Politics with responsibility applies to all. This includes PDM too. They must learn a lesson from this episode. Pakistani is basically a country of illiterate, jaahil people with no civic sense at all. No manners, no etiquettes. Only 5 to 10% population among 250 million rodents are well mannered. So, spread of social media amplified this arrogance, jahalat exponentially. What went around before 2018 election, came around just in time before 2023 elections.

" Realy? many people in the forum think that this is the process to become a great nation. Thank god someone like you has some reality, so that you can actually do something.
