I would like the emotional PTI net warriors on this forum to comment on Akbar Babar views on why Hoti left PTI
Khawaja Khan Hoti's Joining and Exit from PTI
A well wisher has shared a piece attributed to Ms. Fauzia Kasuri, a friend since early PTI days, regarding Khawaja Hoti’s exit from the PTI. I am reproducing below relevant excerpts of Ms. Kasuri’s piece where my role in bringing Khawaja Hoti to the PTI fold has been described:
Quote When Khwaja hoti was joining it was actually Akbar s... her babar (Ex central Secretary Information ,founding member and a friend) who negotiated with him.Khan sb was not in the picture until all was done. The pledges made to him was that Khwaja hoti would be made central Vice President and that if the environment is suitable his son may be nominated for Provincial GS post after 6 months of their joining.
It was the whole pact. Unfortunately Akbar Babar get sidelined due to intra-party misunderstandings. At that time Khwaja Hoti along with his son went to IK and asked about the promises. Imran khan, as the man of his words that he is, made Khwaja hoti central vice president but about his Son he said that due to Intra party elections farooq hoti will have to contest for GS post if he really wants to be Provincial General secretary to which both father and son agreed unquote.
I only wish that my friend Ms. Kasuri had called me to ascertain the facts before writing the piece. I cannot share all the details as some may be toxic and hazardous and would prefer to wait for the truth to unravel as it is likely in the next few days and weeks. All I can share is that while negotiating Mr. Hoti’s joining PTI, there were only 3 persons in the loop namely; IK, Mr. Hoti, and myself and no one else was privy to the negotiations. And, all three were fully on board on all the details during the entire process.
One of the key factors that led to the decay of the Arab society before the advent of Islam was their disdain in honouring commitments and contracts, a trait so common in our society today. Hence, the Qur’an is extremely sensitive and explicit about honoring agreements/contracts.
Rather then sharing the details of the process and final understandings reached, I prefer to share the following fundamentals on honouring contracts and commitments and let all of you to draw your own conclusions:
“Verily, the worst of beasts in Allah’s sight are the ungrateful who do not believe; they are those with whom you made a treaty and then they break their treaty on every opportunity, and they keep no duty to Allah”. (The Qur’an; 8: 55-56).
In another verse it has been said:
“Fulfill the convent of Allah when you have covenanted and never break your oaths after you have confirmed them while you made Allah your surety”. (The Qur’an; Chapter 16: 91)
In the life of the Prophet of Islam (peace be upon him) there are several examples wherein he (PBUH) preferred to incur a loss or face a difficulty rather than allow the violation of any commitment. He (PBUH) used to say to his followers that the best among you are those who fulfill their commitments and obligations. He (PBUH) would always remind them that every violator of a commitment shall be identified on the Day of Judgment with a sign whereby everybody will know them.
