“I have been transferred back to Pakistan without the PIA head office sending the replacement to London just to victimize me because I am brother of Senator Mushahidullah Khan. It is the example of worst political victimization of PTI government. It’s the party that came into power on the promise that it will not interfere in matters of institutions but I have been singled out by the government after being maligned in maligned in the parliament by the Information Minister on false grounds,” he told that scribe.
