Salman Ahmad is leaving PTI and we don't know what true love is anymore

Salman Ahmad is leaving PTI and we don't know what true love is anymore

He live-tweeted his departure from the party and it all started with a cryptic tweet two days ago
Updated 22 Mar, 2018

You know it's really breakup season when Salman Ahmad announces that he's leaving Imran Khan's side.

Also read: The weirdest moments from Salman Ahmad's love letter to Imran Khan

After decades of loyalty to the cricket champ-turned-PTI chief, Salman has announced that he is moving away from political party PTI, claiming he can no longer justify Imran Khan's actions.

He live-tweeted his departure from the party and it all started with a cryptic tweet two days ago.

Who'd have thought Salman Ahmad was in genuine turmoil at the time. Turns out Amir Liaquat is joining PTI and while many raised their concerns, SufiSal was at first confident that his leader will make the right decision.

And he was not afraid of saying more.

He just wanted to be heard, but it looks like he wasn't.

And he did not take it too well.

Will Salman Ahmad still be a part of PTI? Will he sing at those rallies? Or is this completely over? Sigh.

Although no one supports PTI in Karachi, but here I agree that Amir Liaquat has proved time and again that he is a liar and got no moral character. PTI supporters will defend Amir Liaquat for all his verbose like they do to Imran khan.

It may be the start of the end of Imran Khan, which is very very unfortunate. For some reason it has stuck to his mind that by hook or by crook he has to come to power. Coming to power is all important to most of us too as that is only how you can make things happen, but at what cost? He is forgetting the very fact that lots of Nazariyatee's with him have never been from power hungry Clan, rather right is right for them. As it looks like that IK wants to make this fight as his last fight. We can all pray for him and wish that as he has been proving many wrong before and that he would continue to do so. Pakistanis should just consider one thing that one Chance belongs to him also and let us all give him that. After that if does not perform let him fall with a speed million times more than he took to get here. As he is running out of chances as one get forgive him for. IK please take care care before lots and lots more people start giving up on you, Like die hard supporter Salman just did.

There is no question on the fact that Imran Khan is thousand times better than Nawaz or Zardari and PTI should be given chance in next election. But Imran Khan makes one mistake after another and the main issue is that he does not realize his mistakes. This was a grave mistake as Aamir Liquat joining will not earn PTI a single vote, but a lot of people will now turn away from PTI. Although I would still vote for PTI for the sole reason that I cannot convince myself to vote or remain silent to see the proven unpatriotic thieves such as PML(N) and PPP to lead Pakistan, parties who just want to come in power to achieve immortal / almighty status for themselves and their family names. But this move will surely mean that my vote would not matter as it will be an easy win now for PML(N). Goodbye Pakistan...lost all hope.

Salman Ahmed represents the soul of PTI as we saw it ,loved it and supported it. Unfortunately this is not about Amir Liaqats,Fawaad Choudharys and Jehangir Tareens who are habitual hypocrities but about Imran Khan who has traded his soul and PTI for power at any cost. It's a shame and end of principled politics that we believed PTI represented once.

Unfortunately, he has not only shattered their trust, but also their passion for PTI. As if embracing Zardari and Qadri (and many more) was not enough, he had to inject this ill reputed person. No sane person will do that! Will they? Could it be a "spell" on him from hidden hands or "spiritual" bonding? We cannot even guess - can we?
