Imran Khan should openly condemn May 9 riots: President Arif Alvi

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Tehreek Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan should openly condemn the May 9 events, President Arif Alvi said Thursday.

In an interview with Hamid Mir on Geo News’ programme “Capital Talk”, the president — a close aide of the PTI chief — called for taking action against the miscreants involved in the events.

The violent protests were triggered after Khan’s arrest in the Al-Qadir Trust case, which led to the deaths of at least 10 people and injured several others, prompting the authorities to arrest thousands of PTI workers.

After the supporters attacked army installations, the army said that May 9, 2023 — the day when chaos gripped the nation following Khan’s arrest — would go down in history as a “dark chapter”.
