PTI has condemned the indecent audio being attributed to PTI Chairman and former Prime Minister Imran Khan. PTI claims the alleged audio is another attempt to malign Imran Khan.
Earlier, an indecent audio clip attributed to Imran Khan was shared on social media where it was suggested that Imran Khan was talking to a woman over the phone.
The salacious comments made in the purported audio suggested that it was recorded from the phone. The wider public opinion is that the audio clip is fake, however, it has still caused a storm on social media as it is being considered as another attempt to malign the PTI leader. PTI leaders have accused the incumbent government for being responsible for the fake audio.

“When the alleged video of Pervez Rasheed and Maryam was leaked, we strongly condemned it and called it a despicable act. But now fake audios of Imran Khan are being made and spread They are sitting in the federal government so shamelessly that they don’t even have respect for their own leader and are throwing mud on Imran Khan,” PTI’s Azhar Mashwani tweeted.
جب پرویز رشید اور مریم کی مبینہ ویڈیو لیک کی گئی ہم نے اس کی سخت مذمت کی تھی اور گھٹیا عمل قرار دیا تھا
لیکن اب عمران خان اور مریم کی فیک آڈیوز بنا کر پھیلائی جا رہی ہیں
وفاقی حکومت میں اتنے بےشرم بیٹھے ہیں کہ عمران خان پر کیچڑ اچھالنے کی خاطر انہیں اپنی لیڈر کی بھی حیا نہیں

Punjab’s Minister of Information Technology Dr Arsalan Khalid also condemned the audio. Although Arsalan Khalid did not name anyone, he seemed to suggest that a PML-N leader sitting abroad was behind the alleged audio leak.
“The thoughts of their coach sitting outside cannot go beyond fake audio/videos. The economy is destroyed, the industry is taking its last breath, unemployment is increasing day by day and their hobby of fake audios is not going away. With every blow of yours, the people’s faith in the captain is strengthened and they are all united behind one person,” Dr Arsalan Khalid said.
انکے باہر بیٹھے کوچ کی سوچ فیک آڈیوز/ویڈیوز سے آگے نہیں جا سکتی۔ معیشت تباہ ہوگئی،انڈسٹری آخری سانسیں لے رہی،بے روزگاری دن بدن بڑھ رہی اور انکے فیک آڈیوز والے شوق ہی ختم نہیں ہورہے۔ تمھارے ہر وار سے عوام کا کپتان پر یقین پختہ ہو رہا کہ کیسے سب مل کر ایک شخص کے خلاف لگے ہوئے ہو

Members of the journalistic community have also condemned the fake audio leak, claiming that the spread of such obscene audio serves no purpose, but distracts from the real problems of the country, for instance, the economy.

If the indecent audio leaked is actually of Imran Khan, that shows that some have only this much, against Imran Khan, at best.

Releasing such tapes will only damage you but not IK. Don’t stoop so low. Spreading obscenity and explicit content will serve no purpose but have grave consequences in the long run as it will effect the basic morals of our society & may effect you too! Don’t make this mistake.

Frequently leaked audio clips of political leaders have raised concern for the country’s cyber security. Since September, several political figures have been the target of leaked audios. Most of the audios were leaked from the Prime Minister Office.
