PTI Chairman and former Prime Minister Imran Khan has challenged the incumbent to arrest him instead of giving threats. He made the hard-hitting comments during his rally in Taxila.

Imran Khan, while responding to the arrest warrants, challenged the government to arrest him and put him in jail instead of giving threats.

“This is the movement of real freedom, I am ready to go to jail and my nation as well. We are not afraid of jail,” said Imran Khan while addressing a mammoth public gathering in Taxila. He said the nation was ready to give sacrifices for real freedom.

To clarify, a Pakistani court on Saturday issued an arrest warrant for former Prime Minister Imran Khan for “threatening” a female judge at a public meeting in August. The warrant was issued by a magistrate in the capital Islamabad after the former premier failed to appear before him for a hearing on the case.
