Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan condemned the raids on houses of the party leaders in Punjab, Islamabad, and Karachi, saying a peaceful protest was the right of all citizens.

“Peaceful protest is the right of all our citizens. The brutal crackdown on PTI leaders and workers in Punjab and Islamabad has once again shown us what we are familiar with – the fascist nature of PMLN when in power. The present crackdown also raises serious questions abt the Handlers,” Imran Khan said in a tweet.

Already economy is in a tailspin. I want to warn the crooks & their handlers that these undemocratic & fascist steps will further exacerbate the economic situation and push the country into a state of anarchy,” he added.
