Furthermore, the Prime Minister condemned the protests by PTI which resulted in clashes with police authorities and attacks on military and state property, calling them “disgraceful incidents of terrorism”. He expressed solidarity with the armed forces, saying the nation will stop any nefarious attempts at undermining them.
“Imran Niazi’s statement about the Army Chief is a reflection of his diseased and obsessive mindset. As DG ISI, Gen Asim Munir unearthed the corruption syndicate of Niazi and that is why he has been maligning the COAS from day one. It is also his admission of masterminding the tragic and disgraceful incidents of terrorism undertaken by PTI goons at his behest,” PM Shehbaz Sharif said on Twitter.
“The desecration of the martyrs’ monuments and attack on the national installations represent an unimaginable low in our politics. The nation stands behind its armed forces & will thwart any nefarious attempts at undermining them,” he further added.
Political chaos erupted in Pakistan after the arrest of PTI Chairman and former Prime Minister Imran Khan. PTI supporters took to the streets to protest the arrest and reports of clashes between the public and police also emerged.
The dire situation escalated as the public expressed their anger by destroying civil and military property, burning tires on the streets, and even setting fire to the building of Radio Pakistan in Peshawar and the Corp Commander House in Lahore.
