ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif on Saturday said that if anyone had any doubt, Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf Chairman Imran Niazi’s antics of the last past few days laid bare his fascist and militant tendencies.
On his Twitter handle, the prime minister said “From using people as human shields to throwing petrol bombs at police to leading ‘jathas’ to intimidate judiciary, he (Imran) has taken a leaf out of the RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) book.”
Shehbaz praises umpire Aleem Dar for his meritorious services: Prime Minister Muhammad Shehbaz Sharif on Saturday appreciated umpire Aleem Dar for his meritorious services to international cricket and said Pakistan was proud of him.
