Sajiduallah Khan who is serving as station manager at London Heathrow airport wrote this response on his facebook to Federal Minister of Information Fawad Chaudhary.
Salaam to all,
Federal minister for information government of Pakistan Mr Fawad Chaudhry levelled baseless allegations of nepotism and favouritism on my family while addressing the national assembly of Pakistan and during his media talks on numerous occasions.
His accusations are that my brother Senator Mushahid Ullah Khan inducted his brothers and female members of the family in PIA and they got undue promotions by using political influence. Being the member of the family, I feel obliged to clarify the position of my family in this regard by stating the facts of the matter.
Please note that we are five brothers including senator Mushahidullah Khan, not six as mentioned by the honourable minister which shows the lack of authenticity of the information given by him. Let me clarify that I have two sisters who are housewives and have never worked for PIA or any other organisation or department in spite of the fact that they are highly educated.
Mr Fawad Chaudhry specifically mentioned the name of my eldest brother Mr Mujahidullah khan who got a job in PIA with the support of his brother Mushahidullah. Whereas the fact remains that Mr Mujahidullah has never been the part of PIA but retired from Pakistan steel mills ten years ago.
Senator Mushahidullah joined PIA in 1975 and the other three brothers Mr Mujahidullah Khan, Rashidullah Khan also joined PIA in the 1970s, When Senator Mushahidullah Khan was not in the politics nor even the Nawaz Sharif. We are all retired from the service except the youngest one mr Sajidullah Khan who is going to retire in a couple of years.
Sajidullah Khan has done masters in public administration from Punjab university in 1986 and joined the national institute of papulation studies as research associate and was selected for the scholarship by university of southern California USA, that he refused as he was looking after his ailing mother rather he resigned from the job just to give full attention to his seriously ill mother.
He joined PIA in 1988 as trainee officer following the PIA policy of induction of MBAs and MPAs after the lengthy process of written test and interview with the strict merit system.
The purpose of the above mentioned facts is that senator Mushahidullah Khan was not in politics while me and my brothers were inducted in PIA then there is no reason to believe that our inductions were politically motivated or the result of any nopotism or favouritism.
I challege that even during the service no such thing is evident in promotions and postings.
Let me state that we have always been victimised by the different governments on political basis due to the political status of senator Mushahidullah Khan and his aggressive politics.
I challenge that a current lot of all directors and general managers are junior to my Mr Sajidullah khan who is highly educated having being the most experienced officer as far as the domestic and international operation is concerned but still working in group Ix. The background of my family is that we belong to a lower middle class educated family who are self made and believe in hard work integrity and honesty.
My father was in government service and raised his children with rizq e halal. Let me narrate that my father never owned a house nor all of the brothers including senator Mushahidullah Khan and living in a rented house which shows the purity of their belief in honesty and integrity. I think it is inappropriate and unethical for the minister of information to mislead the nation and defame my family by giving false statements just to settle political score with my brother senator mushahidullah.
