Imran’s threats to spread anarchy: PMLN
ISLAMABAD: The PMLN’s top leadership on Sunday harshly criticized PTI chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan, saying Imran Khan’s “foreign-funded” threat against a female magistrate was an incitement to lawlessness and violence.
Federal Aviation Minister Khawaja Saad Rafique took to Twitter to criticize the PTI chairman, saying Imran considered himself above responsibility and above the law. He said legal action was mandatory to make open threats to the judge.
Defense Minister Khawaja Asif said that when the accidents of history and the misfortunes of a nation give a small person an important status or position, it does not mean that person becomes great. Asif added that the value of a person like Imran Khan rarely changes. He abuses and threatens his benefactors, government officials and women, Asif said.
Federal Planning Minister Ahsan Iqbal said SC’s duty was to ensure the rule of law in the country. “Imran Niazi’s abusive, intimidating and then decoy tactics against state institutions and officials will not serve his nefarious purposes (InshahAllah),” he added. He further stated that the foreign-funded anarchy to disrupt economic recovery would be defeated.
PMLN leader and former Punjab chief minister Hamza Shahbaz on Sunday denounced PTI chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan, saying threatening by taking the name of a female magistrate was wrong and shameful. The ex-Punjab CM further said that after continuous accusations against state institutions, the matter has now moved to blackmail, which was a conspiracy.
Federal Information Minister Marriyum Aurangzeb said on Sunday that former Prime Minister Imran Khan had become a security risk. In a series of tweets, she said justice would have figured out who the Sicilian mafia was after Imran Khan’s threats against a female judge and two senior Islamabad police officers. She added, “He challenges national institutions and the state to incite people to violence, rebellion and chaos. He wants to start a civil war in the country.
