ISLAMABAD – Minister for Defence Khawaja Muhammad Asif on Monday said that a few thousand agitators were pushing Pakistan towards destruction.
He said that the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and the Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) wanted to cut Pakistan off from the rest of the world. The minister said that they had no link with democracy as they were spreading anarchy in Pakistan. He said that there was a limit of patience, restraint and the government would have to change its policy of restraint.
He said that the rampaging in Pakistan Television (PTV) Corporation by the protesters had exposed the PTI and the PAT's claims of peaceful protests. He said that PTI chief Imran Khan expelled PTI president Javed Hashmi when he opposed unconstitutional decision taken by the party chief.
