Pakistan Minister Rana Sanaullah

Pakistan Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah on Sunday courted controversy with his remarks on former Prime Minister Imran Khan saying that the PTI chief has taken the country’s politics to a point where “he (Imran Khan) will get murdered or us.”

Rana Sanaullah, a close aide of former Pakistan premier Nawaz Sharif and a senior leader of the ruling Pakistan Muslim League (N) (PML-N) told private TV channels in an interview on Sunday that Imran Khan has taken Pakistan’s to a point where only one of the two can remain—PTI or PMLN. He claimed that Khan has turned politics into animosity and now he is “our enemy” and will be treated like that.

The senior Minister said that Imran khan has put the entire existence of PMLN in jeopardy and its has come to a point where either “he (Khan) or us” will get murdered, adding that the PMLN will “go to any extent” to settle a score with the ousted Pakistan Prime Minister.

Asked if such remarks could result in anarchy in Pakistan, Sanaullah said that anarchy already prevails in the country.

Sanaullah’s comments triggered outcry among the country’s political circles, especially Imran Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) who have termed it as an open threat to Khan’s life and urged the country’s Supreme Court to take notice.

Responding to the minister’s comments, former federal information minister and PTI leader Fawad Chaudhry termed the remarks as a “direct threat” to Imran Khan’s life from the PMLN-led coalition regime.

Chaudhry asked: “Is Sanaullah running a gang or government? Adding that the Supreme Court had rightly declared Sharifs-led PMLN a Sicilian mafia and Sanaullah’s statement is proof.

Another senior PTI leader Shireen Mazari said the comments are proof of Rana Sanaullah’s murderous intent towards Imran Khan, while urging the judiciary to take note of the threats issued against Khan.

The PTI said it has never witnessed in the past that a ruling party openly declared eliminating a popular leader of Pakistan.

In November last year, Imran Khan, 70, after surviving an assassination bid during a rally in Wazirabad in Pakistan’s Punjab, had named Rana Sanaullah behind the attempt on him.

Khan in his application to the police had also named Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif and a senior ISI officer for their alleged role in the bid on his life.

Danish citizen Thor Pedersen has travelled to every country in the world. He got there by all means of travel possible — by foot, by car, by bus, by train, by boat, and a container ship. It took the 44-year-old man 10 years to finish this challenging task. Pedersen began his trip in October 2013, reports said.

He claimed to have travelled through every nation in the world without using a plane in 3,512 days, according to reports. Even though there are 195 countries on the United Nation’s official list, Pedersen claims to have visited 203 countries since he included disputed territories.

Pedersen travelled on a total 351 buses, 158 trains, 43 tuk-tuks (autos), 37 container ships, 33 boats, 9 trucks, 3 sailboats, 2 cruise ships, a police car, a yacht, and a horse-drawn carriage.  He made it particular to spend a minimum 24 hours in each country during his journey.

He also travelled to India in the latter half of 2018 and the beginning of 2019. After a remarkable 3,512-day journey, he arrived in the Maldives, his 203rd and last nation, via container ship. Pedersen is now among the 150 people in the world with the most travels thanks to this incredible accomplishment.

On his incredible journey, he said, it was challenging for him to plan for everything that would come his way because this had never been done before. He said he was proud that he never gave up throughout all of this. He was pleased that he was able to bring out the strength which was required.

Pedersen faced enormous challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, which left him stranded in Hong Kong for two years. He thought of giving up the project because of the virus’s unknown characteristics and the growing danger. However, he received support from Le, his long-time girlfriend, during the break in his preparations. Interestingly, the pair chose to get married, and Le visited him 26 times during that period.

Thor Pedersen financed his trip with personal savings, business sponsorships, and crowdfunding with a daily expenditure of just $20 (around Rs 1500). Many people followed his incredible journey on social media along the way, joining him there.

He has been working nonstop to record his adventures, and he intends to make a feature-length documentary that highlights his journey. Pedersen will soon release a book, to enable his admirers to find out more about his adventures.

A Gujarat based top pharmaceutical manufacturing firm Indiana Ophthalmics has been accused of supplying poor quality eye drops to Sri Lanka. The Sri Lankan government has complained to the Indian government stating that the eye drops supplied by the company has has caused eye infection to 30 people.

On Thursday, Pharmaceutical Export Promotion Council (Phermexcil), India’s Centre agency looking after the promotion of pharmaceutical exports from India has sent a notice to the Gujarat company asking an explanation and an internal investigation report on the quality of the Methylprednisolone eye drops.

Phermexcil Director General Udaya Bhaskar in a letter to Indiana Ophthalmics has stated that the alleged supply of the contaminated eye-drops by the company has dented the reputation of the Indian pharma industry and will have to face trust issues by the international agencies on the export of pharmaceuticals from the country.

A probe has also been started by the Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation on Thursday, to investigate into the questions of quality concerns being raised on the eye drops being manufactured by Indiana Ophthalmics. The drops were recalled by Sri Lanka’s Ministry of Health in April this year saying the patients had reported complications after using them.

The Sri Lankan government claimed to have found bacteria Burkholderia cepacia in the eye drop. The Lankan government has asked the Indian government to compensate the affected patients and has demanded to investigate into the matter. Reports claimed, the firm has been told to stop production of eye drops immediately.

As per reports, the state drug officials had tested the drops and are waiting for results. Reports also said, these drugs require sterility testing hence, the test results will take another 15 days. Once the test results are out, they will be sent to the Sri Lankan government immediately.

A similar case was reported in February 2023, when questions were raised against Tamil Nadu based Global Pharma Healthcare, a firm whose product was allegedly linked with contamination causing blindness and one death in the US.
