The Planning Minister for Pakistan, Ahsan Iqbal, has stated that the government is not targeting Imran Khan, the leader of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) political party. This statement was made following Imran Khan’s arrest on corruption charges and unrest from PTI supporters. The minister noted that there are democratic ways to protest and that the PTI followers are acting against the interests of Pakistan, with schools closing and national institutions being targeted. The government has arrested other PTI leaders in response to the violence caused by the protests. The minister added that Imran Khan was also responsible for arresting political opponents during his time as prime minister, but without resorting to such violence. The minister emphasized that accountability is important for the country, but that violent protests are not the answer. The government reacted to the protests by blocking mobile broadband and social media.
