ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has said that roots of the mutinous attack on the state, its symbols and sensitive installations on May 9 lay in the contents of Imran Niazi’s speeches over the past one year, asking law enforcement agencies that they should leave no stone unturned to bring the rioters and vandals to justice. But at the same time, he emphasized that no innocent person should get punished.
Taking to his Twitter handle, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif wrote: “The roots of the mutinous attack on the state, its symbols & sensitive installations on May 9 lie in the contents of Imran Niazi’s speeches over the past one year. He has liberally deployed religious imagery to brand his political agitation as a war between truth & falsehood. He has relentlessly maligned & attacked the armed forces & the sitting Army Chief & very cunningly prepared his cult with the slogans of “Haqeeqi Azadi” aimed at inciting them for violence we witnessed on May 9.
In another tweet, he said: “My direction to the law enforcement agencies is that they should leave no stone unturned to bring those involved in the incidents of vandalism, arson & violence to justice. At the same time, they should make sure that no innocent person gets punished.”
