Imran Khan Case: Pakistan’s Home Minister Rana Sanaullah has said on Friday that PTI President Imran Khan spread the politics of hatred across the country under the plan. Addressing a press conference in Islamabad, he lashed out at Imran Khan.

Home Minister Rana Sanaullah said during a conversation with reporters that Imran Khan is the name of a “fitna” (riot), which if left unchecked will ruin the country. He said that the incident of May 9 introduced the country to this disturbance. During this, he said that no one involved in violence will be spared. Along with this, no action will be taken against innocent people. The Home Minister said that the facts will be placed before the whole country.

Sanaullah said that 499 FIRs have been registered in connection with the May 9 incident. Of these, 88 FIRs have been registered under the Anti-Terrorism Act and 411 under other laws. The minister said that around 4,000 people were arrested in connection with cases registered under terrorism charges, while 5,000 people were arrested in cases registered under other laws.

Innocent people will not be punished: Sanaullah

Sanaullah said that out of 499 FIRs registered in connection with the events of May 9, only six cases could be tried in military courts. He said that such an atmosphere is being created that all cases will go to military courts, it is not so. He has further said that Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has also made it clear that those who are innocent will not be punished in connection with the violent protests that took place in the country on 9th May.
