Bilawal likens PM Imran Khan to ‘security risk’ for stance on nuclear programme

PPP Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Saturday termed Prime Minister Imran Khan a “security risk” for the country following his stance on the need for a nuclear programme.

PM Imran Khan, while speaking to Jonathan Swan on HBO’s “Axios” had said that Pakistan’s nuclear arsenal is “simply a deterrent, to protect ourselves”, adding that ever since its nuclear capability, it had had no wars with India.

“The moment there is a settlement on Kashmir, the two neighbours would live as civilised people. We will not need to have nuclear deterrents,” the premier said.

Hitting out at the prime minister for the remarks at a rally in Azad Jammu and Kashmir’s Kotli Division today, Bilawal said that his grandfather, Zulfiqar Bhutto, “who gave Pakistan its nuclear capability” was declared a security risk, as was his mother, former prime minister Benazir Bhutto.

“But when your puppet prime minister says we do not have any need for the atomic weapons programme, does he not become a security risk?”
