After the address people took to twitter to praise Khan for his timely and sensible address.

“A bold, logical and beautiful speech by Prime Minister Imran Khan on important issue after Supreme Court judgement on Asia bb. Its good to see PM come forward to take the bull by horns. PM raised valid & relevant points. I hope everyone will support prime minister on this issue.” wrote Rauf Klasra

Our own #ImranKhanPrimeMinister Khan, Today is a day all Peace loving, law abiding Citizens should be so proud of this courageous man who spoke for all the Pakistanis .Bravo @ImranKhanPTI”

Ameer Abbas wrote, “Indeed #PMIKAddress was an address of a statesman communicating to its ppl heart to heart. #ImranKhanPrimeMinister didn’t mince words, spoke with clarity & vociferously. He has imparted strong message that Pak is not a leaderless state as he appeared himself in crisis as a leader.”

Muaaz Ahsan wrote, "Bravo @ImranKhanPTI exposing and taking the goons head-on who are trying to hold the entire state hostage, inciting violence against the judges and the army chief. This is how the writ of the state should be established, waiting to see these words reflected in govt’s actions." 

"Well done to the prime minister for reading the riot act to the extremists. Wish and pray the Opposition supports this stand. Each sane Pakistani must unconditionally back this stance. About time a leader stood up to challenge the Mullah's sole ownership of faith," wrote Abbas Nasir.
