‘Hoped new military leadership would have disassociate from Bajwa’s fascist actions against PTI’

Lahore (Web Desk): PTI Chairman and former prime minister Imran Khan on Saturday that he had hoped the new military leadership would have “immediately disassociated” itself from the eight months of the previous army chief’s fascist actions against the PTI, the media and critical journalists.

“The entire nation is shocked at the vindictive cruelty Senator Azam Swati is being subjected to & for what crime?  For intemperate language & asking questions which is the right of anyone in a democracy? Internationally Pak & esp our mly is being perceived increasingly negatively,” Imran Khan said in a series of tweets.

“bec the present Imported govt is seen as a mere puppet govt. One had hoped the new mly ldrship would have immed disassociated from the 8 mths of Bajwa's fascist actions against PTI, the media & critical journalists. The 74 yr old heart patient Senator Swati must be released immed,” he added.

“not only bec he has committed no crime to deserve this mental & physical torture, but also because this petulant & vengeful targeting is undermining our mly's credibility which is critical for a strong Pakistan,” the former premier maintained.

Last week, Senator Azam Swati was taken into custody for the second time after a raid at his farmhouse in Chak Shahzad by the Federal Investigation Agency’s (FIA) Cyber Crime Wing Islamabad for allegedly tweeting against senior military officials.

He was later produced before a judicial magistrate, who handed him over to the FIA on a two-day physical remand.

On Friday, Swati was shifted to Quetta aboard a special flight amid tight security after the judicial magistrate of Islamabad handed over his custody to the Balochistan police. From the Quetta airport, he was taken to an unknown place.
