ISLAMABAD: Chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Imran Khan on Sunday condemned the police action against his party protestors.
The former prime minister said in a tweet that the “imported government” was violent against our peaceful Azadi March protesters while flouting the Constitution and Pakistan’s Supreme Court.
Imran Khan further claimed that the night before the PTI Long March, Punjab and Sindh police violated the residences of PTI members and harassed their families.
A day earlier, the head of the PTI said a petition would be filed with the Supreme Court on Monday to find out whether peaceful protests are the right of Democrats.
He said, “We have a track record 26 years of peaceful protest and never held violent protests, adding that PTI is the only party that doesn’t have a military wing.”
