Imran Khan claimed this in an interview given to actor Shan Shahid on Hum News on Wednesday. In the interview, the actor wants to know about the use of marketing companies in politics and the war of the fifth generation.
The former prime minister made the remarks at a time when pro-PTI accounts on social media were warning supporters about the horrors of ‘Dipfek’.

Imran Khan said, ‘I have to fight with the mafia. The biggest mafia among them is the Sharif mafia … they always carry out personal attacks. Because, they have been involved in corruption for 35 years. When someone talks about their corruption, they attack his personal character. ‘
He said his ex-wife, Jemima Goldsmith, had also been targeted in the past. He was accused of being part of the ‘Jewish lobby’ and was campaigned against. He was also charged with exporting antique tiles.
The former prime minister alleged that the Sharif family was preparing to launch a campaign to assassinate his character after Eid. He said, ‘Now Eid is over. Now you see, they are completely ready to kill my character. They have hired companies that are preparing this material. ‘

Miriam Newaz is out on bail. Nawaz Sharif convicted. His sons have fled abroad again. What do they have to say in defense? ‘
The PTI chairman said that instead of responding to the theft of hundreds of crores of rupees, the Sharif family is now focusing on killing his character.
Imran Khan said, ‘What was Jemima’s crime? She’s my wife … now they’ve got Farah (Khan). Farah’s crime is that she is a close friend of Bushra Begum (Imran’s wife). ‘
The former prime minister said the Sharif family was preparing to do more. They are making audio recordings of former Chief Justice of Pakistan Shakib Nisar and the late Judge Arshad Malik.
Imran Khan said, ‘This is the work of the mafia. I just want to tell people, if you want to spread slander in someone’s name, there are companies that can help you achieve that. ‘
