Pakistan: Former Prime Minister Khan’s Party Battles Government Repression
August 25, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Pakistan News
After Khan was ousted in April of this year due to a no-confidence vote, the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) is under a great deal of pressure. The PTI is under pressure since they frequently attack the country’s strong military in their big demonstrations, accusing the generals of being behind the regime change, and they back the recently-installed Shehbaz Sharif administration.
Khan was charged after he delivered an aggressive speech to thousands of his supporters at a rally in the capital city of Islamabad, criticizing the arrest of his top aide and threatening the senior police officers and judge overseeing the case. Khan is a former cricketer who has since become a populist politician. He claimed that the cops had tortured his assistants.
Speaking to his fans on Saturday, Khan threatened them, saying, “We will bring cases against you and will not spare you.”
During his rallies and media appearances, Khan has made remarks that have been directed at Pakistan’s powerful military, police, and present government.
Khan has been given a three-day “transit bail” that prevents authorities from detaining him on terrorism-related accusations.
Thousands gather in front of Khan’s villa
On Monday, hundreds of PTI supporters gathered in front of Khan’s hillside home outside of Islamabad to show their support for their leader. If Khan is arrested, the PTI has threatened to bring the nation to a standstill through protests and rallies.
“Imran Khan’s arrest would trigger a widespread, violent backlash that would plunge the nation into anarchy. We gave this government a deadline warning. If you detain our leader Khan, millions of people will march toward Islamabad to overthrow this government “claimed Fakhar Zaman Sial, a lawyer who was seated next to Khan’s villa’s entrance.
“People have strong feelings for Khan, and it is absurd to file bogus charges against him. He’s a terrorist, right? No, he is a respected national leader on a worldwide scale. We won’t allow this to take place. Khan will have to be taken into custody in spite of our bodies, “added a different ally.
“Our devoted employees raced to Khan’s home early on Monday morning and prevented the arrest plot from succeeding. I got here on Sunday evening “Approximately 250 kilometer’s (155 miles) from Islamabad, in the Punjabi region of Sargodha, arrived Mohsin Raza, who spoke to DW.
“Khan and his party are currently under pressure, but it won’t last through the tenure of the current military leadership. If PTI survives this specific moment of duress, it will probably emerge considerably stronger as the nation’s unquestioned main party, “Political analyst Mosharraf Zaidi told DW.
Threlkeld asserts that the PTI lacks a leader with Khan’s degree of support and charisma who could lead the party, creating a vulnerability at the top were Khan to be sidelined, in the event that Khan is detained or excluded from politics for an extended length of time.
The immediate repercussions are likely to be a possibly deadly clash between Khan’s fans and the state, according to Afzal, but I think the party will unite around Khan, not choose an other leader. Khan’s party has stated that his probable arrest will be a “red line.”
