The Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari said that he was not in favor of banning the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) despite the party attacking state facilities.
According to the details, the Foreign Minister made these remarks while addressing a press conference on Thursday. He said that he would be the last person to endorse such a move.
The Foreign Minister said: “I am not in favor of banning PTI or anyone. We must adopt a completely constitutional and legal procedure to ban PTI.”
However, Bilawal Bhutto Zardari added that declaring PTI a proscribed outfit was the last resort.
In response to a question, the Foreign Minister responded: “A decision cannot be taken on television based on the video evidence that has come out so far.” He called for PTI workers to end their violent protests and said that the party had done “what it had to do”.
“PTI should not cause more harm. They should declare an end to violent protests and face the cases against them,” he said and also expressed a desire to have an outcome that would create political stability in the country.
In another conference, Bilawal said that May 9 — the day when Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan was arrested from the Islamabad High Court (IHC) — was “another Black Day” in the history of the country. He said that in the history of Pakistan, several days are marked as the ‘Black Days’, and now May 9 has been added to the list.
