Islamabad, Feb 29: A new book has claimed that Pakistani Prime Minister waz Sharif received money from Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. The book “Khalid Khawaja: Shaheed-i-Aman”, authored by Shamama Khalid, the wife of former Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) operative Khalid Khawaja, claimed that Sharif received money from Bin Laden to contest elections against the Pakistan People’s Party (PPP), Dawn online reported on Monday. “Chief of Pakistan Muslim League-waz (PML-N) waz Sharif received funding from Osama bin Laden, founder of Al-Qaeda, to contest elections against Bezir Bhutto-led PPP after the end of the Zia regime,” the book said. Sharif’s pledge of introducing an Islamic system attracted Khalid Khawaja, an ISI officer, and Bin Laden. But even though the Al-Qaeda head honcho funded Sharif heavily, the latter backtracked from all his promises after coming to power, it claimed. (IANS)
