Imran Khan’s Raiwind march


Javaid Bashir

PML (N) is employing all sorts of tactics to halt Imran Khan ‘s march towards Raiwind. They are making it a security issue. Sharif built the boundary wall at the state expense around his Jati Ummrah residence and has converted it into a fortress. If he still does not feel safe there then he should leave Pakistan and go elsewhere for his safety. Millions of Pakistani live in poor housing condition with no security at all. Has elitist rulers thought about their safety.
PML (N) party lawyers are filing petitions in the Courts to obstruct & halt Khan’s declared March towards Raiwind to register protest against massive corruption. These Lawyers are perhaps not aware of the constitutional provisions guaranteeing fundamental rights involved in this instance. Right to assemble and protest is a basic right of the citizens.
The Gujranawala PML (N) workers formed a danda & ghandsa bearing force to defend P. M ‘s Raiwind residence. These Jiyalas of Sharif hvea taken upon them to resist Khan ‘s march. N league women workers have also joined this force. They call it Janbaz Force. I think they have been ill-advised and they are playing with fire. They want to spread anarchy in the country.
