Fake news circulating through Twitter that Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa was in London took social media by storm, leading to intense speculation and discussion about the ongoing political situation and the future politics of Pakistan.
Prime minister shared five pictures, which were captured in the garden of his Banigala residence, to show that he is relaxing at home with his pets and not at all bothered about what the opposition leaders are planning against his government.
Maryam claimed that some federal ministers were beseeching her party to start dialogue, but the PDM has rejected it. However, Minister for Information and Broadcasting Senator Shibli Faraz refuted the claim.
Criticising the opposition, the prime minister reiterated that he would not give any National Reconciliation Ordinance-like concession to the opposition leaders no matter how many rallies they staged.
After the funeral prayers, Begum Akhtar's body was taken to Jati Umra estate, where she was laid to rest next to the grave of her husband, Muhammad Sharif.
The rally in the city of Multan was held a day after police, on orders from the government, carried out the arrests and banned the gathering, defending the move as necessary to combat the coronavirus pandemic in Pakistan.
“I praise Gen Bajwa today. To attack an army chief in this manner, a reaction comes from the army,” Imran said during an interview to a TV channel when asked whether there was any “anger” within the military over Sharif’s aggressive speeches.
All the dissenters driven out of the JUI-F have been its senior leaders for decades. Some of them have been quite uneasy over Maulana Fazlur Rehman’s policies since long but they have been deliberately silent for their own reasons.
Sharif is already serving a seven-year imprisonment in Al Azizia Mills corruption case.
As the picture went viral on social media, it sparked a debate about his health with his detractors asking why he does not return to Pakistan if he is well and roaming on London streets, while his supporters expressed joy at seeing their leader in good health and spirits.
