Defense Minister Khawaja Asif says the Government is contemplating PTI restriction.
ISLAMABAD, MAY 24: Defence Minister Khawaja Asif said on Wednesday that the current administration is reportedly considering banning Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) as the nation’s political turmoil intensifies.
The rallies on May 9 against the arrest of party leader Imran Khan in connection with the $190 million settlement issue prompted this.
Pakistan may outlaw Imran Khan’s PTI, according to Khawaja Asif, Pakistan’s defence minister.
But he said that the Parliament would need to approve any decision by the administration to outlaw the previous ruling party.
The action was taken amidst political unrest in the country caused by Khan’s arrest on defilement charges on May 9 and subsequent release on bail under court instructions.
The PTI labourers and their allies charged with responding to the pioneers’ demand for nationwide battles.
The showings became deadly as they pursued public and private property, including army posts and buildings.
Additionally, they destroyed the Jinnah House, the Corp Commander’s residence in Lahore.
Since then, the military has decided to use the Pakistan Army Act and the Official Secrets Act to prosecute arsonists and those who participated in anti-state activities on the day of the riots.
“The PTI is attacking the state’s foundation for the first time. Asif stated this on Wednesday while addressing a press conference in Islamabad.
“Was there a crime that didn’t occur on May 9?” He told.
May 9 fights motivated by evil Indian plans.
Asif stated that the criminals involved in the violent incident had evil intentions.
“The PTI has tested the state’s writ. The minister said, “He has nefarious intentions that could only be of an Indian and not a Pakistani.”
He said aloud that anything Khan did “commended in India”.
Alluding to the situation that transpired before the statement of disapproval against Imran Khan in April last year, Khawaja Asif said: ” Any one of the means taken by Imran Khan after April 9 has set him back.
We did not harm him. He is experiencing this because of his activities.”
Asif added, “All the evidence is surfacing that the events on May 9 took place under a plan” and that the criminals had been assisted.
He stated that terrorist attacks had planned for a year. The violent incidents were preplanned, according to the suspects arrested.
Imran Khan’s last resort was to attack military facilities. The actions of May 9 “challenged the writ of the state,” Asif said.
The minister continued by stating that the PTI had challenged the government.
The minister then said that May 9 would a day of remembrance for the martyrs, who are revered worldwide.
