Karachi: Chief Minister of Sindh Syed Murad Ali Shah has summoned an important high level meeting over arrest of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz leader Captain (retd) Safdar by Karachi police in early hours of Monday.
According to sources, Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) leadership will attend the meeting via video link. Murtaza Wahab, Saeed Ghani, Nasir Shah, Mukesh Kumar and other leaders will attend the meeting.
The source also said that the provincial government will announce its action plan after the meeting.
Saeed Ghani said in a tweet that the Karachi police arrested PML-N leader Captain Safdar (withdrawal).
Saeed Ghani said that (withdrawing) Captain Safdar’s actions at the Quaid-e-Azam mausoleum was inappropriate; however, the Sindh provincial government did not order the arrest of the PML-N leader.
He further stated that this action of the police was to establish a division among the political parties of the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), but this conspiracy would be thwarted.
Earlier, after the police attacked a private hotel in Karachi early in the morning, they arrested Captain (retreat) Mohamed Safdar because he violated the sanctity of Qued’s Tomb.
Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice-president and wife of Muhammad Safdar, Maryman Nawaz took to Twitter and said, “Police broke my room door at the hotel I was staying at in Karachi and arrested Capt. Safdar.”
“I was in the room, sleeping, when they barged in,” Maryam Nawaz said.
As we all know, the leader of Pakistan’s Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) filed a complaint against Maryam Nawaz and Captain (retd) Safdar among the 200 PML-N workers in the Karachi Brigade Police Station on the grounds that they were in Mazar-e-right.
According to the FIR, the case had been registered on Section 6 (convening of meetings or processions at the mausoleum), Section 8 (entry into mausoleum with weapon) and Section 10 (penalty for contravention of provisions) of The Quaid-i-Azam’s Mazar (Protection and Maintenance) Ordinance, 1971.
It is necessary to mention here that before the Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM) held a rally in Karachi on Sunday and chanted political slogans from the mausoleum, the leaders of PML-N visited Mazariquad.
