ISLAMABAD - Keeping in view the extremely grave security situation in the country, Pakistan Tahreek-e-Insaf (PTI) on Monday demanded immediate session of the National Assembly to discuss the prevailing situation regarding law and order.

During a press conference at PTI central office on Monday, Vice Chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Central Information Secretary Shireen Mazari and President Women Wing Munazza Hassan demanded an immediate session of the National Assembly.

If the present government is not prepared to call an immediate session of the NA, PTI is already in touch with the opposition leaders for the requisition of the session.

The PTI also demands that judicial commission constituted to examine and look into the facts about the Rawalpindi incident should also widen its mandate to include other cities in Pakistan where similar sectarian incidents have claimed the innocent lives and are taking place at the behest of the enemies of Islam and Pakistan.

The PTI leaders said that acute security situation arising in the country because of Ashura violence in Rawalpindi has already begun spreading across the country and the sectarian wave would prove last nail for the social fibre of the society and harmful for the country.
