Foreign Minister Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari has urged the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party to end the violent protests that erupted across the country after the arrest of PTI Chairman Imran Khan. Khan was taken into custody on Tuesday in relation to the Al-Qadir Trust case. Protesters clashed with security forces, resulting in eight deaths and over 1,900 arrests. Mobile internet services and social media platforms were also restricted. Bhutto-Zardari said that the PTI should “declare that you will abide by the rule of law and the Constitution” and engage with the National Accountability Bureau “as citizens and not as terrorists.” He also called on the PTI to understand Pakistan’s history and consider whether to remain a political party or adopt an armed resistance. The minister praised the army for showing restraint during the protests and concluded by saying he hoped for free and fair elections.
