Hear the drone attacks petition filed by the PTI and hold a judicial inquiry under the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court to ascertain the legitimacy of the drone attacks under our Constitution and also determine the scale of human loss and establish scope of compensation to the victims and their families.
Ensure immediate access of media and human rights organizations to FATA to independently assess the human and material losses suffered by the people due to the drone attacks.
The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf also demands of the Supreme Court to urgently hear the petition filed by the PTI regarding the drone attacks.
In case drone attacks continue and these demands are not met by the government, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf demands:
India Daily— Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan has said that if the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP)-led federal government fails to stop U.S. drone strikes within 30 days, protesters will block all NATO supply routes across the country. …
“As a nation we cannot progress as long as our economy depends on handouts from international lenders and donors.
“The policies of international lenders have strangulated the capacity of the ordinary citizen to live a life of dignity. We must strive for self-reliance. The goal of self-reliance does not in any way imply that we isolate ourselves from the global economy. It only shows our conviction that by restoring the trust of the people in public institutions we can harness their potential and mobilize them for a better tomorrow.
“We offer a new and credible leadership that is committed to restoring Pakistan's political and economic sovereignty by building a new bond of trust between the government and the people. Only through the active participation of the people can we collectively mobilize our human and material resources to forge ahead on the road to a confident and self-reliant nation.
“We are committed to political stability through credible democracy, transparency in government and accountability of leadership. We believe in federalism and functional autonomy to the provinces.
“We strive for a moderate society that banishes hatred and religious bigotry. We focus on addressing the root causes of religious extremism, which are injustice, poverty, unemployment, and illiteracy while Islam and the Two-Nation Theory remain the bedrock of Pakistan's foundations, religious dogma must not be used to whip up passions to create fear in society. On the contrary, a truly Islamic society advocates tolerance, moderation and freedom to practice the religion of one’s choice without fear. Sectarianism is a curse that must be eliminated from society.”
"Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf leadership approaches the people with sincerity and a sense of history and pledges commitment to:
Freedom from Political, Economic and Mental Slavery — A self reliant modern Islamic Republic
Freedom from Injustice — Inexpensive and quick dispensation of justice
Freedom from Poverty — 50 percent increase in per capita income in 5 years
Freedom from Unemployment — Two million new jobs every year
Freedom from Homelessness — 2.0 [like]- new housing units every year and complete ownership rights to millions living in Katchi Abadis
Freedom from Illiteracy — Full literacy in 5 years
Freedom to Generate Wealth
Freedom from Fear — Complete Freedom of thought and expression
Freedom for Women — Free education up to Matric for girls from poor households.
Equal right for minorities — no religious discrimination"
