PM: The government is handling the cases of the May 9 rioters through the legal system

Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has condemned the May nine protests in Pakistan, calling them a “brazen assault at the State of Pakistan” with “sinister objectives.

In a series of tweets on Monday, Sharif accused the PTI (Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf) party of attempting to “destroy the country’s integrity” and resorting to “acts that no country in the world would tolerate.

Sharif also dismissed claims by PTI that human rights abuses are taking place in Pakistan in the wake of the protests. He said that the government is committed to upholding the law and safeguarding the rights of all citizens.

The protests erupted on May 9 after former Prime Minister Imran Khan was arrested by police. Khan had been leading a series of protests against the government, alleging that it was corrupt and illegitimate.

The protests turned violent in several cities, with demonstrators setting fire to public property and attacking police officers. Dozens of people were injured in the violence. The government has since launched a crackdown on those involved in the protests, and has arrested hundreds of people.

Sharif has said that the government will hold all those involved in the violence accountable. He has also urged the PTI to refrain from violence and to engage in peaceful dialogue. The PTI has so far refused to back down, and has vowed to continue its protests.

The situation remains tense in Pakistan, and it is unclear how the government will be able to resolve the crisis.
