He warned that anyone who attempted to enter the Red Zone forcibly would be dealt according to the law.

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Khan had made a fresh call for a protest outside the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) office in Islamabad on August 4, Thursday, to demand the resignation of Chief Election Commissioner (CEC) Sikandar Sultan Raja.

Moreover, PTI leader Asad Umar gave a reminder to party supporters on Twitter today that they should protest outside ECPs Islamabad office on Thursday against the commissions verdict in the prohibited funding case.

Sanaullah stated that in a democratic society, everyone was entitled to peaceful protest, but if protestors engaged in violence, then they would face action.

While referring to PTIs Azadi March in May, he stated that the party had brought armed ministers, adding that if any such act took place this time, they would be dealt with force.

The interior minister also spoke about the verdict, saying that it had proven Imran to be a foreign agency and PTI a foreign-aided political party.

Sanaullah said that Imran Khan took money to pollute Pakistani politics, adding that the federal cabinet would take a decision against him tomorrow.
