Web Desk — Defence Minister Khawaja Asif claims considering all options including a ban on the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI).
The minister told the media in Islamabad that the coalition government was mulling all-out options to outlaw Imran Khan-led party. Khawaja Asif said Imran’s nefarious gambit of attacking military installations will never be going to repeat.
The PML-N stalwart linked PTI’s 9th May protests in line with New Delhi’s plan as the archrival India was pleased as Imran Khan and his supporters fulfilled their long-due thirst by attacking the national heroes’ monuments and vandalizing the state assets.
The senior minister claimed that attacks on sensitive installations were not spontaneous but pre-planned. He alleged former prime minister Imran Khan and his close members of attacking the Army Headquarters and Jinnah House Lahore (Corps Commander House).
Rana Sanaullah Statement
Pakistan’s Federal Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah has also hinted at filing a reference against the PTI in the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) in light of several recent revelations.
Human Rights Organizations Warning
As a widespread crackdown is underway against the PTI following the May 9 riots, several human rights activists have opposed any move to ban Imran Khan’s PTI. It is said that any attempt to dissolve the country’s leading party would further plunge the South Asian nation into a deeper political crisis.
