Samia Qazi lashes out at PTI for not inviting her to inauguration of hospital named after her

KARACHI: It was another milestone for PTI which has inaugurated new Hospital but a storm of criticism came out from a front they have least expected.The daughter of late Jamaat-e-Islami chief Qazi Hussain Ahmed, Dr Samia Raheel Qazi criticised Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s leadership for not giving the former due credit during the inauguration of a medical complex in Nowshehra.


“I strongly protest PTI’s move to not invite any member of JI for the inauguration of the medical complex,” Samia said.

Earlier today, PTI chairman Imran Khan inaugurated Qazi Hussain Ahmad Medical Complex in Nowshehra and paid tribute to the late JI chief. Oddly, no senior JI member could be seen attending the inaugural event.

My father played a vital role in building the medical complex, envisioning the facility and getting land allocated for it in 2002, Samia said. “It was sad to see that we did not receive any sort of invitation to attend the event.”

Samia said that she also played a role in establishing the institute as a member of the National Assembly during the same year.
