Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) president Imran Khan is addressing a rally in Sialkot after the site turmoil as clashes broke out between the Christian community and PTI workers earlier in the day.
The former prime minister said the PTI government had never stopped its opponents from rallies, but today (Saturday) they played the “dharma card” to stop the rally.
“Nawaz Sharif fled the country with ‘Bollywood style’ acting.
Following the violent protests, some PTI leaders and activists, including Usman Dar, were briefly detained when they tried to organize a rally at the church’s CTI ground. The public meeting is now being held at the VIP Cricket Ground.
The PTI chief thus urged all party workers to take to the streets across the country and protest against the “imported government” for being disrespectful.
Khan has been campaigning since his expulsion from the prime minister’s office, claiming there was a “foreign conspiracy” against his government.
