There Is Law Of Jungle In ‘Hamara Pakistan’: Imran Khan
Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan has condemned the arrest of his party's social media activist Waqas Amjad.

On Twitter, Khan wrote that PTI social media activists are being ‘abducted’ and bogus FIRs are being registered against them. He added that there is a law of the jungle in ‘Hamara Pakistan’, referring to the term recently used by Army Chief General Asim Munir. He claimed that law enforcement agencies are taking action against his party workers while complying with the directives given by ‘higher authorities.’

The PTI chief claimed that even the people who are providing food to the party workers staying at his Lahore residence, Zaman Park, are being ‘picked up’ and ‘terrorized’.

"We have been blocked from the mainstream media, and now our social media team is being targeted," he said.

Imran Khan also claimed that internet cables have been tampered with to slow down the speed of the internet.

On Saturday, PTI Sindh chapter president Ali Zaidi was ‘picked up’ from Karachi after a case was filed against him at the city’s Ibrahim Hyderi police station.

The FIR includes Sections 34 (acts done by several persons in furtherance of a common intention), 506 (punishment for criminal intimidation), 420 (cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property), 471 (using as genuine a forged document), and 468 (forgery for purpose of cheating) of the Pakistan Penal Code.

A tweet posted on the party’s official account showed a man, believed to be Zaidi, being escorted to a white vehicle by men in civvies, with uniformed police personnel surrounding the scene.

In another piece of footage, officials are seen dragging and pushing the former minister at the party secretariat. According to PTI spokesperson Farrukh Habib, the arrest was carried out by Sindh police.

The party claims that Zaidi was taken into custody without a warrant and moved to an undisclosed location.
