Chairman and founder of Pakistan’s Tehreek-i-Insaaf (PTI) Imran Khan, who is often accused of being a ‘Taliban sympathiser’, said on Wednesday he considers Taliban to be terrorists, while rubbishing speculation of him supporting extremism and militant groups.

“This is absolute nonsense. It’s just not true,” he said in an interview with Al Jazeera English’s current affairs show, UpFront. “All you have to do is look at my statements for the past 10 years.”

Within this context, Imran was also asked if he considers the Taliban a ‘terrorist’ group. “Yes they are,” he replied. “Anyone who kills innocent people are terrorists.”

 

Imran also responded to accusations by former president of Pakistan Asif Ali Zardari that his large financial donations to Darul Uloom Haqqania, a school known for educating Taliban fighters, was evidence that he supported extremism.

“This is totally out of context,” he said, explaining that the purpose of the funding from his party was “to get the madrassa system into the mainstream”.

He added, “If it was a university for jihad it should have been shut down” by previous Pakistani governments.

The PTI chief further added that Zardari’s comments were “like so many of the Muslim corrupt rulers, ex-rulers, trying to win Western support by saying how liberal they are and how anti-Taliban they are
