Sheikh Rasheed

RAWALPINDI – The famous for his political predictions Sheikh Rasheed Ahmed has been warned by Federal Interior Ministry regarding serious life threats and advised to reduce his movements to its minimum.

Sheikh Rasheed confirmed on Saturday morning receiving a letter from interior ministry.

The ministry of interior claimed that there were some serious life threats to Rasheed. However, it was not revealed that which factions wanted to hurt the member of National Assembly from NA-55 Rawalpindi.

The leader of Awami Muslim League (AML) Sheikh Rasheed was elected MNA from NA-55 in 2013 general elections. He had been under security threats since Operation Silence in 2007 in which famous Lal Masjid of Islamabad was attacked by Pakistan security forces to curb militants. Sheikh Rasheed was a cabinet minister at that time.

In later years, during his election campaigns he had been attacked and got injured while his associates lost lives during by-polls after 2008 general elections.

The latest attack, however, on Rasheed was inĀ August 2013 when his vehicle was fired at in Islamabad.

Sheikh Rasheed had called a special press conference today (Saturday, May 10).
