Bio

Abdul Aleem Khan is an ‘Entrepreneur’ who owns multiple property/construction concerns around the city including Park View Housing Scheme. He is the Chairman of the Vision Group. He also dabbled in the media business by launching an Urdu Language newspaper ‘Waqt’ that was later acquired by the Jang Group.

Aleem Khan first got infamous in Lahore immediately after he took over the Park View Housing Society that was plagues by scandals and land scams. Even though this scandal was small compared to Aleem Khan’s land grabbing of Railway Lands which he leased from Railway on a 99 year lease to sell them off later as individual plots, the Park View Scandal became headline news much faster. The Park View Housing Scam was one of the largest and well documented scams in Lahore’s recent past.

images (1)What happened was this. Abdul Aleem Khan took over a nearly defunct housing society called Park View. Park View was originally envisioned as a housing society back in 1987 by a couple of partners who sold plots within the housing society. They promised that it would be completed by 1992, but when that was not done, restructuring happened within the society and as a result of it, Abdul Aleem Khan took over the never constructed housing society. It was at this point that plans for the new Airport in Lahore were announced and as the society was opposite the airport, the prices of plots that at one time were 60,000 PKR for a Kanal sky rocketed to about 4 to 5 Million.

Seeing this opportunity, Abdul Aleem Khan cancelled plots of over 130 people for allegedly not paying development charges in the society. In addition to that Abdul Aleem Khan added two new extension blocks and started selling them as well without mentioned the fact that the extension to the Park View Housing Scheme was not attached to it but were in fact half around the city near Jullo Park. In addition to this, in his attempt to acquire more land, Abdul Aleem Khan was implicated in a murder case when he along with his men tried pressuring people of Malikpur village to sell their land on the cheap.

Aleem-KhanBased on these antics, Aleem Khan is commonly known as ‘THE LAND MAFIA’ and the ongoing joke for many many years is that ‘Lahore doesn’t need Land Mafia, we have Abdul Aleem Khan’. He is the main accused in Railway Land Lease Scam concerning the Garhi Shahu Land Development which is all originally owned by Pakistan Railway.

And now, the Abdul Aleem Khan with this glorious past has been ‘elected’ as the Lahore President of Pakistan Tehrik-e-Insaf. That itself is irony at its best, the LAND MAFIA now heads Movement for Justice in Lahore.

    It is unfortunate that only corrupt and manipulators are elected by our people may be urbanized or living in villages. This head master of land scam mafiahow ever has been elected by manipulation or on merit ? Dr.Sajjad

      fully agreed. Imran khan supported Pervaiz Musharraf. what change you expect from him?

  2. Nadia March 27, 2013 at 7:08 am #

    Imran Khan seems to be the new face who can bring change. But if he supports people like Aleem Khan, then I’m not sure how sincere Imran is. Maybe he just wants to become a PM for his personal satisfaction. And in the process, he doesn’t care what happens to Pakistan. As an Imran Khan’s supporter, I am disappointed.

    Aleem Khan is known as “Chhota Malik Riaz” in Lahore, its very such shame for supporters that a goon,looter and land grabber is President PTI Lahore.

  4. Azhar Iqbal March 27, 2013 at 8:02 am #

    Political claims made by IK was fantastic but on the real ground PTI is sticked to corrupt people like aleem khan who messed thousands lives by land grabbing.

  5. Kashif Gulzar March 27, 2013 at 8:23 am #

    He is Land grabber,Don and Mafia, He was Punjab IT Minister in Mush era & very close to Parvez Elahi, now this “Lota” has “Selected” President of PTI such a shame !! This shows how much “Big Money” is involved & this is not a change but “Money Changer” group shows it is Party of goons and land grabbers as Mehmood Ur Rasheed also occupied Punjab University ‘s land which was evacuated last year by LHC orders, Once “Chhota Malik Raiz” (read as Aleem Khan) send goons to stop a press conference and in involved in land grabbing for his Park View Housing Society. Shame For This so called “change”!!

  6. Ayyaz March 27, 2013 at 8:57 am #

    Here what I say, simply speechless, may be I was expecting too much from Imran Bhai or he claimed too much that’s why my expectation were very high, don’t know, but this isn’t a change what I was looking for. DISAPPOINTED

  7. Abdur Rahman March 29, 2013 at 5:56 am #

    Its a shame and insult that such morons are leading party which claim ‘change’. Aleem Khan being president of PTI of Lahore (which they call as their hub) shows us their real faces. People should realise that these rejected people in PTI wont give us any change or betterment.

  8. Kashif Zulfiqar March 29, 2013 at 6:14 am #

    Isn’t this the same “clean” Aleem Khan who is a land mafia don who made billions under Musharraf and was Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi’s IT minister in Punjab?
    Wow! PTI is certainly the hope (ROMLMAO)!!!!
    Insfians also says same about him, they say:
    Azizi Mukhbari abut Aleem khan’s gift to Imran khan

    1)- Aleem khan gifted Imran khan a BMW,

    2)- He travelled from Dubai to Davos on a private jet.

    No objection as long as the private jet was from his personal money or the guy whose private jet it was travelling with Imran Khan.
    so this is how Aleem Khan is going to win Election Ticket ??? Khan sahib should have told us before that he is going to accept souvenirs…

    MashaAllah 🙂

    P.S. It will be fun to watch IK fall over himself trying to prove Aleem as Mr. Clean….

  9. Aurangzaib March 29, 2013 at 6:49 am #

    Mubarak Ho! Mubarak Ho!
    Kaho…. Land Mafia Zindabad….!!!
    Aagar itne drame/election stunts karne ke baad bhi agar Aleem Khan ne hi President banana tha to laanaat hei tumhare saare transparent process per Jhootey Khan sb….
    Mai writer se itefaq kerta hun

    The way I see it for PTI in Lahore is that there were three candidates running for president: Mian Mehmood-ur-Rashid (former IJI, PTI Original), Aleem Khan (ex Q leaguer), and Farooq Amjad Mir (ex Q Leaguer). What a pity that two out of three candidates joined PTI about a year ago. Mehmood’s was only involved in looting LDA plots but Aleem is more like a land mafia don. At the end, Aleem had more money and he was able to buy the lower level elected members who were supposed to vote in this election.
    PTI is like a barren land; no talent outside IK (But for me he is also a confused person)

  11. Kashif March 29, 2013 at 8:12 am #

    Following are few of the people who have joined Imran Khan’s sacred and self-righteous revolution for change. If these are the agents of change, I should better stick to the status quo:
    1- Abdul Rasheed Bhatti. This man is a known murderer with nine registered cases against him and thirteen in which he is suspect.
    2- Abul Aleem Khan. He is a former Musharraf third level thug in Lahore who used to collect bhatta for Musharraf and is still part of land mafia in Lahore.

  12. Hasham April 2, 2013 at 1:03 pm #

    Now Aleem khan has been denied the PTI ticket. A good news for real PTI supporter on this page and bad news for fake PTI supporter on this page.
    Fact: IK opponents will now find some other excuse to blame PTI:D

    Thanks God. Allah is helping PTI. Chota Riaz is ticketless now

    I had heard much about abdulaleem khan, above posted article about abdulaleem khan is bit of eye-opener, although my trust in imran khan is not yet shaken . i remember the Hench-men and bullies of sharif khandan also ejected by force and upon the threats of murder many peasants who were legally having their plots over present 19000 canal sprawling fiefdom of sharif khandan,many of these poor land owners were forced to sell theire small land holdings at the samll and wishfull price of sharif khandan but surely two wrongs dont make a right, if sharif family did this we must not turn it into an excuse for the defense of abdulaleem khan

    If above allegations are supposed to be true than Shehbaz Sharif Government stands accountable for not enforcing law against land mafia giant involved in big scams. PML N supporter please don’t say “”ye b federal hukumat ka kam tha shehbaz bechara kya krta””

    Aleem khan won bye elections in 2013 while Pervaiz Elahi was Chief Minister and Punjab Govt. supported Aleem khan by all means-legal and illegal. Amir ul Azim was the major contest along with Aleem khan.Just a few days before polling date, Amir ul Azim and his supportes recovered thousands of ballot papers from Aleem Khan’s election office and presented these in the Lahore High court. Court ordered an inquiry and it was revealed that those very ballot papaers were missing from Election Commission’s /Govt.Printing press’e office who were to distribute these to the respective polling stations. So court issued orders and Bye Election date was extended and inquiry sought to determine the real culprits. Nothing came out after wards on this rigging scam of Aleem Khan and Pervaiz Elahi but all the powerful lobbies again worked out and Aleem Khan one by a couple of thousand votes from Amir ul Azim who perhaps could not stop these shameless rigging tectics of Aleem Khan and Pervaiz Elahi mafia. And Bravo, the 2003 experiences of Aleem Khan Mafia will be sure tried all across PTI camps in 2013.HALE IMRAN KHAN, HALE THIS CHANGE!!!

      I think that is the reason that Aleem khan lost election this morning. Imran didn’t listen to party while making Aleem as a choice. By the way the time of buying park view by aleem khan his age amounts to about 20-30 years. How he acquired wealth to buy that in his 20s?

    Moreover, rawalpindi president of PTI Jazi Khan ia also of same repute, Mr gambler…He was denied PML n ticket coz of his ill repute in the area but made as president Rawalpindi by PTI…Similarly famous looters of Mailsi Khichis are also now part of PTI..There is not a single city where oppurnists and corrupt politicians are denied bt PTI…Ch Ijaz from mandi, Doger from Multan are latest examples..

    I have no words in respect of pti,s change .Every loota and corrupt person is in Pti.
    SHANE ON IMRAN KHAN AND PTI.

  19. mohammad khan August 31, 2015 at 5:29 am #

    It seems financial chalki of IKhan to manage the election’s expenditure.The poor cannot do.Out of elite class, no sincere and patriotic person is available.IKhan is not a blind devotee of PTI that he nominates a stone and people would vote it.Khan does not want to gamble that way against the Govt with their all energies and collaborates.He did not forget results of Presidential Election by using services of a retired Supreme Court Judge.Now pray to God and trust the Good.
