KARACHI: Jamaat-e-Islami (JI) Karachi president Hafiz Naeemur Rehman has said that the arrest of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chairman and former Prime Minister Imran Khan is unacceptable.
Hafiz Naeem ur Rehman, speaking at a press conference in Karachi, condemned the arrest and use of force against women by police.
He claimed that Jamaat-e-Islami won a major mandate in the Karachi LG elections, whereas the Pakistan People’s Party rigged the elections.
According to the head of JI Karachi, PPP employed state infrastructure, including the police, to falsify the vote count. They are celebrating the drop in Karachi’s population count in the most recent census by organizing this gathering.
A day earlier, the Islamabad High Court (IHC) prevented police from detaining PTI Chairman Imran Khan in all cases recorded across the country, including those that were not publicized, until Monday (May 15).
The court also awarded PTI chief protective protection in three terrorist cases filed against him in Lahore and barred police from detaining him in any case filed in Islamabad after May 9.
Imran was also granted protective bail in a case involving the death of Zille Shah, a PTI worker who was killed during a party rally in Lahore earlier this year, for 10 days against surety bonds of Rs50,000.
The Islamabad High Court (IHC) granted former Prime Minister Imran Khan protective bail in the Al-Qadir Trust case, a day after the Supreme Court determined his incarceration was “illegal.”
It is worth noting that National Accountability Bureau (NAB) arrested PTI Chairman Imran Khan in the Al-Qadir Trust issue. Rangers officers acting on a warrant issued by the National Accountability Bureau (NAB) apprehended PTI head from the premises of Islamabad High Court, where the former premier had gone to seek bail in various charges filed against him.
