Musharraf dictatorship has Pakistani oppositionist Imran Khan arrested


This video is called Emergency – Imran Khan Speaks from a Secret Location.

From the BBC:

Khan arrested at Pakistan protest

Pakistani opposition politician Imran Khan has been arrested after making his first public appearance since emergency rule was declared, police have said.

The former cricketer was detained after going to the University of Punjab in Lahore to address a protest by students against President Pervez Musharraf.

Mr Khan was initially held for an hour by students from the Jamaat-e-Islami party after a standoff on the campus.

On Tuesday, Mr Khan said there should be no negotiations with Gen Musharraf.

Mr Khan joins scores of other more powerful opposition politicians already in custody.

Hold on a moment. Western apologists for the dictatorship in Pakistan by Musharraf usually depict him as an enlightened secularist. However, with the arrest of Imran Khan, he is playing hand in glove with Jamaat-e-Islami, usually depicted as fundamentalist Muslim. So, something is wrong with pro Musharraf propagandists. Well, about everything about them is wrong.
