May 09 will be remembered as dark chapter in country's history-ISPR

 The military spokesman said that PTI made a well thought out plan to target Pakistan Army

The Pakistan Army‘s media wing ISPR issued a strongly worded statement on the events followed by the Imran Khan’s arrest.   The statement said that May 9, 2023, will be remembered as a "dark chapter" in the country's history the day when chaos gripped the nation following Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan's arrest.

In a statement, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said after the PTI chief’s arrest from the Islamabad High Court on National Accountability Bureau’s orders; a “well-thought-out plan” was witnessed in which the army was targeted. “Soon after [Khan’s arrest], there were organised attacks on army properties and installations and anti-army slogans were raised,” the military’s media wing said.

The ISPR called the PTI leaders “hypocrites” for inciting their workers against the armed forces on the one hand, and other, they were praising the military in a bid to overshadow their criticism.“We will not allow anyone to take the law into their hands,” the military’s media wing said in a statement  today.

“On the one hand, these evil elements vigorously stir up public sentiments to fulfill their narrow and selfish goals and on the other; they do not get tired of highlighting the importance of the army for the country while throwing dust in the eyes of the people. This is an example of hypocrisy.”

The military’s media wing added that a group of people  draping political garb in their lust for power  have done unprecedented damages to the country that Pakistan’s enemies since its inception have not.

“The army showed extreme patience, tolerance and restraint and without caring about its own reputation worked with extreme patience and endurance in the wider interest of the country.”

The statement mentioned that when such a situation was created under nefarious, a heinous bid was made to force the military to give an immediate response, which could be used for nefarious political purposes.

“The army’s mature response, however, thwarted this conspiracy. We are well aware that behind it were orders, directives and complete pre-planning by some sinister party leadership,” the statement added.

The facilitators, planners, and political activists involved in the protests have been identified and now, strict action will be taken against them “in line with the law and all these evil elements will now be responsible for the consequences”, the military spokesman further said.
