Khan calls out senior judiciary for its inaction amid law violation

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan on Monday called out the judiciary for its “inaction” following the accusations of breaching of the law and the constitution by institutions.

Khan in a statement referring to the motion of no-confidence by the opposition parties stated that Pakistan saw a “foreign-abetted regime change which caused chaos in the state and despite all of this the judiciary remained silent”.

He also urged the Judiciary to intervene while stating, “When will the judiciary move to act against state institutions that are defying all laws and violating the Constitution?”

He also questioned the senior judiciary about the protection of citizens’ fundamental rights guaranteed by the Constitution.

However, while referring to the number of cases against PTI leader’s khan stated “We are seeing an increase in the number of fake cases and abuses of power by various executive branches.”

The ex-premier also demanded a judicial inquiry on the death of Pakistani journalist Arshad Sharif in Kenya.

“It is high time they did and safeguarded against excesses by the state and government. We have seen citizens, politicians, journalists, and human rights defenders intimidated, arrested, charged with terrorism and incitement to mutiny, and tortured,” khan stated.

The PTI also demanded the answer of Interior Minister Rana Sanaullah before the privilege committee to clarify the detention of PTI MNA Saleh Muhammad.

MNA Saleh Muhammad was detained on the charges of terrorism after reportedly shooting at a police party on security duty outside Pakistan’s Election Commission when Imran khan got disqualified for 5 years.
