“Walking the talk of Riyasat-e-Madina. Last week PM @ImranKhanPTI moved around on Shahra e Faisal without any closure of traffic. If #Pakistan is safe for the PM on one of the busiest roads of Karachi, then it is surely safe for anyone visiting… INCLUDING FOREIGN CRICKET TEAMS,” wrote Ali Haider Zaidi in a tweet.
