PTI activist has admitted that the threatening phone calls he received and of which he shared a video that went viral were in reality fake and made up.
According to the details, the former PTI media activist Muhammad Shafiq from Jhelum confessed that the threatening phone calls which he alleged were from the state institutions, were fabricated.
Muhammad Shafiq admitted that on the alleged orders of the former prime minister and PTI Chairman Imran Khan and former information minister Fawad Chaudhry, he saved the phone numbers of some of his friends as ‘private number’ on his phone.
Upon instructions from the PTI leaders, he allegedly asked his friend to call him and then threaten. In response, he also ‘threatened’ the make-believe aggressors.

Imran Khan’s Chakwal jalsa
During his Chakwal rally earlier, Imran Khan’s speech took a turn where he advised the public to not be fearful anymore. He urged the public to not hold back and asked them to “threat those in return who are threatening them by calling from unknown numbers.”
“I am asking Pakistanis to break the fear of idols, those threatening you by calling from unknown numbers and frightening you, threat and scare them in return,” Imran Khan said.
He claimed that since ‘Mr. X and Mr. Y’ have been issuing threats to people, they should be on the receiving end of similar treatment. Pertinent to mention that there have been reports of PTI leaders and journalists critical of the incumbent government receiving threatening phone calls from unknown numbers.
“Who are they to threaten you? You are the leaders of the country! Calling you from unknown numbers, threatening and scaring you. Do what you want! We will see too!” Imran Khan hit out.

Needless to say, Imran Khan’s speech became a hit and began trending on Twitter. Among the praises for his speeches, some videos also went viral where people were telling off their alleged harassers in phone calls. Seems like some of those videos were fake.
