ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: President Dr. Arif Alvi has said that he is alarmed, shocked and deeply disturbed over the current situation in the Country arising out of the arrest and manhandling of the former Prime Minister Imran Khan.
In a statement on Thursday, the president said that the loss of human lives as an aftermath is heart-wrenching, regrettable, unfortunate & highly condemnable.
President Arif Alvi said that the protest is a constitutional right of every citizen of Pakistan but should always remain within the bounds of the law.
“The way some miscreants have damaged public property, particularly government and military buildings, is condemnable,” he said.
The president said that we must have a re-think and look for political solutions rather than coercion and arrests.
“I have conveyed my concerns to the political & military leadership and am hopeful that the situation can improve. I strongly appeal to all citizens of the Country to remain peaceful,” he said.
Meanwhile, President Arif Alvi has written to letter to Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif to convey his concerns over the situation arising in the aftermath of arrest of Imran Khan.
