Why is PTI practically silent on Kamran Faisal 'murder'? - Request to Imran Khan

By Shah Zalmay Khan (@PTI_FATA)
It has been 5 days since the terrible news of NAB investigator Kamran Faisal's murder first floated (yes murder because even if it was a suicide, there is evidence that he was compelled to do so by his NAB bosses and their bosses). I have tried to analyse & answer in my earlier blog as to Who killed Kamran Faisal?
Coming back to the point.
Both social media and mainstream media have raised their voice demanding justice for the honest officer. However, the political leaders and parties are yet to come up with something substantive on this issue.
One can understand the reluctance of PPP in pursuing this case, since their TOP BRASS are the ones responsible for the whole terrible episode. Practical silence of MQM, ANP, PMLQ and JUI etc is also understandable because what all these groups want is their own share of the pie, being allies in the corruption of PPP. The silence of PMLN can also be comprehended because they would never like honest officers to flourish in the society as they are also beneeficiaries of 'the system'; they do the same things in their domain.
What I fail to understand though, is the reaction of my party PTI and my leader Imran Khan? Now my Insafian friends may say Imran Khan and PTI leaders condemned it on Twitter and TV and asked for inquiry so PTI's responsibility is over............... No Sir you are wrong. PTI's responsibility is NOT over yet.
Remember Kamran Faisal was no ordinary man. He was a symbol of CHANGE in the otherwise corrupt bureaucratic class of the country especially in the NAB. We Insafians always claim that our leader is a symbol of change in the corrupt political class of Pakistan. I expected my leader, Imran Khan to see a personal angle to this; to not only raise a voice for him but also start a campaign for getting him justice. The symbol of change in political class i.e. Imran Khan should have campaigned for the symbol of change in bureaucratic class. This is a golden opportunity because there are voices raising from within NAB against the criminal & corrupt rulers and their cronies sitting in NAB etc.
Why PTI is not doing so, its beyond my comprehension.
Let me take this opportuinty to address you my leader, Imran Khan, directly:
"Kaptaan Saheb: never ever think that we youth are doing this whole volunteer work for you. No Sir, we are only doing it for Pakistan. We are standing (and will always stand) with you because we believe you are the ONLY hope for this pain-stricken nation. Don't make us regret this belief, please. Raise effective voice for Kamran Faisal and show the status-quo that we, PTIfamily really mean business".

I rest my case.
