PTI requests nation to write letters to Imran Khan

PTI Chairman and former Prime Minister Imran Khan is currently serving a three-year sentence in Attock jail after being convicted in the Toshakhana reference. PTI has launched a campaign urging citizens to express their solidarity with the former premier.

In an extraordinary move that resonates with historical struggles for justice and democracy, the PTI has launched a poignant campaign urging citizens to express their solidarity with former Prime Minister Imran Khan, who currently finds himself behind bars.

The initiative encourages the nation to put pen to paper and write letters to PTI Chairman Imran Khan, not only to show support for his cause but also to emphasize the importance of free expression and democratic values in the face of challenging times.

PTI has urged the nation to share their hand-written letters on X (formerly Twitter) with the hashtag “Letters to Imran Khan”, which has become one of the top trends on X in Pakistan.

The PTI’s call for citizens to write letters to Imran Khan while he is in jail symbolizes the nation’s collective support for the leader. History has witnessed numerous instances where leaders and activists have been incarcerated for their convictions and their time in jail transformed them into iconic symbols of resistance and justice.
