‘Don’t think he is mentally stable, if he is, he shouldn’t go to Pakistan’: Subramanian Swamy on Navjot Singh Sidhu

Legal activist and BJP senior leader Subramanian Swamy today came down heavily on former cricketer and Congress leader Navjot Singh Sidhu for showing the willingness to attend Pakistan Prime Minister-designate Imran Khan’s swearing-in ceremony.

Swamy said that he thinks Sidhu appears to have an unstable mind and if there is even a little bit of balance in his mind, he would not go to Pakistan. This would harm his political career, Swamy said. ‘He would be considered as a traitor and no one would forgive him’, he said.

Imran Khan’s party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) won the recently concluded elections in Pakistan and Khan was hailed as a new poster boy for the so-called liberals. However, Khan, who has also earned the monicker Taliban Khan for his pro-Taliban views, has often shown his soft stand against terrorism. Khan has proven that he is a terrorist sympathiser and also has extreme religious views where he wants to make Pakistan an Islamic welfare state.

Meanwhile, Congress leader and a minister in Punjab government Navjot Singh Sidhu has shown a keen interest in participating in Khan’s swearing-in. Congress leaders have justified the intentions of their party leaders attending the swearing-in at Pakistan as the invite is in their personal capacity.

Former cricketer Kapil Dev who had led India to cricket world cup victory in 1983, too had shown a keen interest in joining Sidhu to Pakistan.

However, Kapil Dev, as well as Sunil Gavaskar, have now turned down the invite to attend Imran Khan’s swearing-in ceremony.
