Pakistan’s Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has accused his predecessor, Imran Khan, of attempting to damage the reputation of army chief General Asim Munir. Sharif urged Pakistani citizens living abroad to dissociate themselves from any “foreign-funded conspiracy” against state institutions. The comments come a day after hundreds of Pakistani-Americans gathered outside the White House to call for an end to the government’s actions against Sharif. The protestors chanted slogans against the military and its chief. Imran’s party responded to Sharif’s comments, stating that they were aimed at creating a divide between the people and the army to “continue with the loot and plunder”. PTI claimed to have “nothing to do with any slanderous campaign against the army chief”. Last week, the government added Sharif’s name to its Exit Control List, a decision he called “fake and baseless” and one he will challenge in court.
