Imran Khan gets exemplary punishment for May 9 attacks

9 min read

A Sindh Governor has called for imran Khan (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf) Chairman to be severely punished for his role in orchestrating and executing the May 9 riots in which his party’s supporters and workers targeted military installations across a number of cities as part of the party’s strategy to undermine the government.

He stated that the PTI chief should have been dealt with immediately after the May 9 attacks, citing the possibility of setting a precedent for others who carry out similar crimes in the future. He spoke during a press conference at the Pakistan High Commission in London, United Kingdom, where he argued that the PTI chief should have faced immediate repercussions.

During the riots of May 9 and 10, Tessori maintained that those responsible should have been punished in a public manner, as opposed to the conventional legal process, whether in civilian or military courts.

I do believe, though, that those involved in the May 9 attacks should not have been dealt with by the courts, but rather by the government in a public fashion. There was a time when those sentenced to prison for attacks on Pakistan army installations, assaults on the corp commander’s house, attacks on General Headquarters [GHQ], physically assaulting Pakistan Army, and vandalism should have been sentenced a long time ago. In their actions, they committed acts of terrorism.

It is forbidden for anyone anywhere to attack any police station, even if it is a police station itself. The world is filled with protests all over, but in the civilised world, terrorism and vandalism are not accepted as acceptable forms of protest. As a matter of fact, there should not be such a situation where someone commits an act of terrorism and then the case is prosecuted in courts for years without any punishment for the perpetrator. This is what our patriotism demands of us,” he told the crowd.

There is no denying that the May 9 incident brought shame to Pakistan all over the world. According to Tesseri, those involved in those acts disrespected the defenders of the country in the worst possible way by not caring for the martyrs and the families of the martyrs, as well as by disrespecting them in the worst possible way.

As per the statement of Sindh Governor, General Asim Munir, who is the head of the nation’s armed forces, should be credited with controlling dollar rates through his actions against smugglers and those involved in illegal trade.

As part of the initiative to repatriate ‘illegal migrants’ identified in the country, Tessori said that all illegal Afghans who were in the country illegally would be sent back to Afghanistan because Pakistan was a victim of terrorism and its criminal elements were involved in the act.

A governor of the province congratulated the Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and the Muttahida Qaumi Movement-Pakistan (MQM-P) on their alliance and expressed hope that it would contribute to the stabilisation of Pakistan. In his remarks, he pointed out Pakistan is in need of a stable system, and that all actors must work together for the betterment of the country.

The PML-N supremo Nawaz Sharif recently returned to Pakistan, and Tessori commented about the return, saying as a result of a lengthy meeting he had before his return, it was apparent that Sharif was concerned about the state of the country and its future. Shehbaz Sharif is regularly contacted by the governor, who said he speaks to him frequently.

The Sindh governor said, “Nawaz Sharif talked about it when he was ousted in 2017, and I publicly praised what he said and did as if it was an awesome thing. Allah has given him another chance, and he now has every right to do whatever he wants to do for the betterment of Pakistan,” he said.

Tessori was in London for the launch of the Sindh Premier League (SPL) to showcase Sindh’s talent and culture by introducing the youth of the province to the global stage in a unique and stylish way by bringing Sindh into focus on the global stage, with the league aimed at bringing Sindh into the spotlight in a spectacular way.

A delegation from the Sindh Premier League management and franchise owners was accompanied by the Sindh governor at the meeting. They included the chairman Aslam Malik, the chief executive officer Chaudhry Shahzad Akhtar, and the president Arif Malik.

As part of the event, SPL’s franchise owners, including Ghulam Hussain Shahid owner of Benazirabad, Jahanzeb Alam owner of Hyderabad Bahadurs, Irfan Wahid owner of Karachi Gladiators, Aamir Siddiqui owner of Larkana Challengers, and other representatives of Sukkur Patriots and Khairpur Royals, were present. A number of other notable figures attended the event and spoke as well, including Lord Qurban Hussain and Lord Wajid Khan.

As Tessori explained, the purpose of the Sindh Premier League is to provide the young cricketers of Sindh with the opportunity to play with local and foreign players and to learn from international cricket academies as well, and to enable them to be exposed to the world level of cricket,” he said, speaking at the event.

He thanked the London business community, as well as other dignitaries from various walks of life, for participating in the event and expressing their interest in the game of cricket, as well as the underprivileged people of Sindh, through their participation.
