Sharjeel condemns protest by PTI workers against Imran’s arrest


Minister of Information, Transport and Mass Transit Sindh, Sharjeel Inam Memon, addressed a press conference today at the Archives Complex Clifton. He said that throughout various times in Pakistan, several political leaders have been arrested, but none have ever staged such a violent protest as the one carried out by the PTI yesterday, which was celebrated by anti-state foreign forces.

He said that Asif Ali Zardari spent 12 years in jail under NAB on false charges . All of you witnessed the patience and dignity Asif Ali Zardari demonstrated at the time of his arrest. Ms. Faryal Talpur was arrested from the hospital on Eid night. Agha Siraj Durrani was arrested at 5:00 am from his hotel room in Islamabad, where he is still facing trial. Agha Siraj Durrani had officially gone to Islamabad to participate in a two-day conference. He is the Speaker of the Sindh Assembly, and if he was to be arrested, it could have been done in Karachi as well, but this was not done. Khurshid Shah and Ejaz Jakhrani were also arrested from their houses.

Sharjil Memon said that I was arrested in the court premises; the media friends and cameras are witnesses to my arrest. To date, there isn’t a warrant of arrest regarding my arrest, but NAB wrote in its arrest memo that I was arrested outside the court premises.
