The minister said that a “spirit” possesses him, giving him his “powers” that supposedly lead him to make accurate predictions.
During his speech, he admitted that people make fun of his predictions, so he had to come clean about the “source of his power”, as per Pakistani media reports.
“I am revealing it today that I’m possessed by supernatural forces,” he said during his speech.
One of the speakers at the launch and special guest at the event, Governor of Punjab, Chaudhry Sarwar, openly acknowledged Rasheed’s abilities.
Sarwar said that Sheikh Rasheed had predicted he would enter Pakistani politics 40 years ago.
