ISLAMABAD: Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) Chief Minister Pervez Khattak on Sunday visited PIMS in Islamabad and enquired after the health of PTI lawmaker Fazle Ilahi who was injured during police brutality.
PTI leader Ishtiaq Urmar also accompanied him. Khattak also enquired after the health of other PTI workers and office-bearers who were injured due to police firing, baton charge and tear gas shelling of Punjab Police.
Talking to party workers and media, Khattak condemned the killing of peaceful protesters by the government. He said that such atrocities would cost heavy to the government.
He regretted that Punjab Police has been turned into Gullu Butt force. He said, “The Supreme Court had allowed us for a peaceful protest. We would soon get rid of such plunderers and cruel rulers who then resorted to bloodshed of the peaceful citizens.”
He lamented that the Sharifs proved that they were in fact successors of Yazid, Changez Khan and other such cruel rulers. Khattak said that there was no justification of remaining at home after such atrocities of rulers. He deplored that killing and oppressing scenes in the “Sharif kingdom” were even not witnessed in the British era and martial law regimes.
“It is pity state of affairs that our rulers ruthlessly killed and injured their peaceful protesting citizens by the police whom are paid salaries through their hard earned taxes,” he added.
He appealed to the nation, especially the people of Punjab, to protest against the atrocities of Punjab Police and the Sharifs. He said that it was high time for all political forces to join hands against such brutality otherwise they would have to face the music in the future.
