Following the filing of a complaint against him by an Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) employee, Fawad was taken into custody early on Wednesday morning for “inciting violence against a constitutional institution.”
In a news conference that was broadcast on television, the PTI chairman addressed the judges of the supreme court, telling them that they had been tasked with preserving the rule of law.
Imran Khan, the leader of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), addressed Pakistan’s Chief Justice Umar Ata Bandial on Wednesday following Fawad Chaudhry’s arrest to demand that his party’s members’ fundamental rights be upheld.
Following the arrest of his party’s head in a sedition case, the PTI leader lambasted state institutions.
After publicly threatening the members of the Election Commission of Pakistan (ECP) in a media interview earlier today, Chaudhry was brought into arrest from his home.
Fawad declared that he is “proud” of the case that has been filed against him while speaking to the journalists at the court. “Nelson Mandela dealt with a comparable situation. It’s said that I acted treasonously, “he stated.
Additionally, Khan questioned Fawad’s crime. In reference to Fawad’s news conference on Tuesday, he questioned whether it was unlawful to refer to the election commissioner as a “munshi” (clerk).
Imran reiterated his condemnation of the ECP’s selection of media mogul Mohsin Naqvi as Punjab’s temporary chief minister while asserting that the commission was in charge of holding free and fair elections in the nation.
He asked, “Why did you select Mohsin Naqvi as the acting chief minister? Was there anyone else you could have chosen instead of the person who was most hostile to us?
The judiciary should “defend our basic rights,” according to Imran. “The country is counting on you to uphold our rights,”
Imran asserted that Naqvi had reinstated every official who had served in Hamza Shahbaz’s government. Does this qualify as election-related preparation? Is this an empire of neutrals?
He continued by saying that his party made name selections that it believed the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz would approve of (PML-N).
According to the former prime minister, the temporary chief minister of Pakistan’s largest province was the subject of an investigation by the previous chairman of the National Accountability Bureau (NAB), for which the latter paid Rs3.5 million to the anti-graft organisation.
