Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has declared that the PTI’s vandalism on May 9 was a brazen attack on the State of Pakistan and accused Imran Khan of indulging in shallow talk to impress upon opinion-makers outside the country, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
In a tweet uploaded on Monday, PM Shehbaz Sharif maintained that the Government of Pakistan fully respects and is committed to all its constitutional and international obligations on human rights.
The prime minister regretted that PTI Chairman Imran Khan in his interviews with international media outlets is openly and deliberately misinforming local and foreign audiences by glib talk laced with fake news and plain misrepresentation.
Shehbaz Sharif said Imran Khan's expedient description of the post-May 9 events as “human rights abuses” and “stifling of the right to political protest” is not only misleading but aimed at manipulating and swaying opinion-makers outside the country.
He said what Imran Khan's party did on May 9 was a brazen attack on the State of Pakistan, with malafide intent and sinister objectives. “No country in the world would tolerate such an attempt at destroying its integrity,” the premier added.
Shehbaz Sharif assured that the culprits are being dealt with under the law and that he will ensure that no rights violations take place. He made it clear that every case will be dealt with due process under the law.
