On Sunday, the senior leader of Pakistan Peoples Party Senator Aitzaz Ahsan said that the threat to arrest Prime Minister Imran Khan using a mob was illegal. The threat had been made by Maulana Fazl-ur-Rehman.

"No government will be able to work this way in the future," he said, "anyone could come up with a crowd of 50,000 people and threaten to arrest the prime minister."

He said that even during the sit-in of 2014 by PTI and Dr Tahirul Qadri, he had opposed the ouster of the prime minister through such means. He said he was neither leaving the PPP, nor joining the PTI.

Aitzaz said women were not allowed to participate or even do coverage of Azadi March.

The PPP leader asked the Rahbar Committee to take up the matter and  avoid such misadventure of attacking the prime minister house.

He questioned that who had given Maulana the authority of making such decisions which fell under the Rahbar Committee’s jurisdiction.

He said Maulana wanted to create anarchy in the country, adding Maulana should adhere to the agreement he had signed with the Islamabad administration.
