Roots of anti-US sentiment are deep in Pakistan, and Imran is getting the benefit

Roots of anti-US sentiment are deep in Pakistan, and Imran is getting the benefit

After the interview of Imran Khan aired on the TV channel CNN, more discussion has started in America about the anti-American campaign of former Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan. Imran Khan's nearly nine-minute interview aired this week. In it, Imran reiterated the allegation that America was behind the change of power in Pakistan last month. At the same time, he also demanded the sacking of US Secretary of State Donald Lou for speaking in a "disrespectful tone" to Pakistani embassy officials.

Both the US and Pakistan's military have denied Imran Khan's allegations. Despite this, Imran Khan's party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is getting the support of a large part of the public on this issue in Pakistan. In this regard, Maleeha Lodhi, who was Pakistan's ambassador to the United Nations and America, told CNN- 'That Imran Khan is using anti-American sentiments to garner support in his favor. His loyal supporters are ready to believe his point of foreign conspiracy ignoring the facts, while there is no evidence in this regard. Huh.


According to analysts, a major reason for such sentiment towards America is the condition of Afghanistan. A large number of people in Pakistan believe that America was engaged in destabilizing Pakistan from the ground of Afghanistan. Such sentiments have existed among the people of Pakistan since at least 2001 when the US invaded Afghanistan. After that in 2003, when the US attacked Iraq, there was an opinion in all the Muslim countries including Pakistan that America has waged a war against Islam.

In 2011, when US security forces attacked al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden in Abbottabad without taking the Pakistani government into confidence, a large part of Pakistan's population considered it a violation of its sovereignty. There was an opinion that America takes arbitrary action without respecting the sentiments of Pakistan. In the same year, US intelligence agency CIA contractor Raymond Davis was assassinated in Lahore. The tension over this issue also widened the gap between the people of America and Pakistan.

According to Islamabad-based lawyer and columnist Kamal Watch, such incidents have caused irreparable damage to the mutual trust between the two countries. Because of these, such stories become credible that someone from behind the scenes is plotting against Pakistan. According to Madiha Afzal, a foreign policy expert at the American think tank Brookings Institution, this old background is the reason behind the support Imran Khan is getting. He said- 'This is a part of a long history, in which stories of western conspiracy have been found in Pakistan. This is something that people blindly trust.

Imran disappointed with low public participation in Azadi March
Former Pakistan PM Imran Khan is disappointed with the failure of PTI leaders to mobilize enough protesters during the Azadi March in the capital. Geo News journalist Shahzeb Khanzada revealed that the deposed PM had expected a large number of people to take part in the march on his own, but that did not happen and people came in less number than expected.

Ruckus case filed against PTI leaders
Recently, there was a clash between Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party supporters and the police inside Islamabad. 11 more cases, including ruckus, have been registered against party workers, including Imran, over these clashes, which took place on the call of Azadi March given by party president Imran Khan. Earlier, a case of arson was registered.
