LAHORE: Osama Bin Laden introduced Nawaz Sharif to the Saudi royal family in the late 1980s, and – during a meeting – the former prime minister had asked the Al Qaeda chief to provide employment to Pakistanis in Saudi Arabia, claimed former ISI chief Khalid Khwaja on Sunday. According to the Times of India, Khwaja – who was close to Nawaz in the late 1980s and early 1990s – made the claim in an interview. “During his first visit to Saudi Arabia as chief minister of Punjab in the late 1980s, no one from the royal family gave Nawaz importance,” he said. “Thereafter, on Nawaz’s request, Osama introduced him to the royal family,” said Khwaja. “A close aide of the Sharif family and I arranged at least five meetings between Nawaz and Osama in Saudi Arabia.” daily times monitor
Compare the above report with the fact that two of Nawaz Sharif's two media spokespersons i.e. Ataul Haq Qasmi and Irfan Siddiqi openly refute Osama Bin Laden's involvement in the 9/11 terrorism. Irfan Siddiqi has openly supported terrorist activities by Abu Musab Zarqawi and the Al Qaeda lot in Iraq and also terrorist activities of Taliban and Al Qaeda in Afghanista and Pakistan. Shame on you, Nawaz Sharif and also on your media faces and advisors including pro-Taliban Chaudhry Nisar Ali Khan and Khwaja Saad Rafiq.
