ISLAMABAD: Chief of Army Staff, General Qamar Javed Bajwa called on Prime Minister Imran Khan at PM House Office, sources said.
Sources said PM Imran and General Bajwa discussed prevailing security situation of the country in wake of protests after the Supreme Court’s verdict in Asia Bibi case.
The meeting was held shortly after PM Imran addressed the nation and warned agitators that state will not be cowed down by threats and will fulfill its responsibility of protecting the life and property of people.
"The despicable language used by a small section of the society against the military and judiciary is utterly deplorable. Such language is used by the enemies of a state," Khan said while addressing the nation in the wake of Asia Bibi's acquittal by the Supreme Court on Wednesday.
Khan's address came hours after Tehreek-e-Labaik Pakistan staged protest sit-ins across Pakistan against the Supreme Court's decision to acquit Asia Bibi, a Christian woman, who was sentenced to death in 2010 for alleged blasphemy.
"I appeal to the people to not give in to them because they are simply trying to increase their own vote bank. To the faction making these threats, I am telling you do not take the state on."
"We need transparent elections as this is the only solution to inflation," Khawaja Asif says addressing the protest
