Former Senior leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), Faisal Vawda, has claimed that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief Imran Khan removed General Asim Munir from his post as Director General (DG) Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) in 2018 for Upholding Honesty and National Interest.
During an interview on Private Media Channel, Vawda revealed that at then time Prime Minister Imran Khan removed General Asim Munir from DG ISI Post for presenting the Proof of Corruption against Bushra Bibi and her friend Farah Gogi.

“That is when Imran Khan sacked the then Gen Asim Munir,” he said, adding that he had warned the then-three-star general that if he took the evidence to Khan, “it will be your casualty”.
However, he said, Gen Munir responded by asking, “Do you want me to be dishonest to my country?”
The former federal minister then said that when Gen Munir presented evidence against Bushra Bibi and her friend Farhat Shahzadi — who is commonly known as Farah Gogi — Imran Khan flew into a rage, accusing him of trying to “meddle in the affairs of his family”.
Faisal Vawda further claimed that when Imran Khan was the Prime Minister, he had asked General Asim Munir at that time to manage the Senate, but he refused, saying that the army could not interfere.
Later, Asim Munir presented the evidence before the former premier Imran Khan of his wife’s ‘corruption’ and the next day he was removed from his position.
“On the same day around 11pm, Lt Gen (retd) Faiz Hamid took charge as DG ISI. This shows how much Imran Khan was in a hurry,” Vawda said.
The former federal minister also claimed that the sit-ins, shootings and even the murder of Arshad Sharif were all done to stop the appointment of General Munir as the Pakistan Army chief.
During the interview, the former federal minister further revealed that Khan was being misled and derailed from his politics by “special people”.
While abstaining from naming anyone, Vawda referred to the £190 million settlement case in which the PTI chief has been accused of providing undue favour to a business tycoon.
He said: “In this case too, you will find members of the cabinet involved. There is also a “special” person who was involved and benefited from these.”
“In the watch scandal too,” Vawda claimed, “Imran Khan got only 3, 4 crore rupees, the rest 20, 25 crore rupees were stolen by everyone together”, Vawda claimed.
Furthermore, the former PTI leader, speaking about the violence that erupted in the country after Imran Khan’s arrest on 9th May, also revealed that 11 people of the PTI leadership were hiding at his house that day.
He recounted that during their stay at his residence, they had been instructed to go and attack the ISI headquarters in Islamabad.
“I told those people that if they were to do any such activity from my residence, I would have to hand them to the police,” he said.
However, they said they did not want to be involved in the matter.
