ISLAMABAD: Calling for Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif’s resignation, PTI Chairman Imran Khan hopes the massive anti-government protest he is leading will serve as catalyst of change and will herald a new era in Pakistan, SAMAA reported.

“When injustice becomes law, resistance becomes duty.” Yesterday we took a giant step 4 Naya Pakistan & democracy,” Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief said through his recognised Twitter account.

Leading thousands of his supporters to Parliament House in Islamabad, Khan, is now all set for final round of his seven-day-long protest today (Wednesday).

“Don’t be adamant Mian Sahb! There is revolution on one side and independence on the other side, you have no choice but to leave… You can’t win the match. We will make arrangements for your government this evening…,” Khan threatened, addressing his workers late on Tuesday when they entered the high-security Red Zone.

“Nawaz Sharif, I will wait for your resignation until tomorrow evening and after that, we will enter inside the prime minister's house. All of our supporters must come to the parliament house at 4 pm,” Khan said addressing the charged and jubilant crowd in his typical style.

However, Dr. Tahirul Qadri who was also leading his followers alongside Khan, distanced himself from Khan's call to occupy the prime minister's house, saying his supporters would maintain a peaceful sit-in until Sharif resigned.

PTI chief Imran Khan and Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri defied government’s instruction and led thousands of their supporters to enter the high-security red zone, using cranes to remove shipping containers put in place to seal off the area.

As Khan and Qadri's followers entered the red zone, army spokesman General Asim Bajwa called for restraint and a negotiated settlement.

“Situation requires patience, wisdom and sagacity from all stakeholders to resolve prevailing impasse through meaningful dialogue in larger national and public interest,” he said on his Twitter account.

Despite fears of violence, there were no major clashes as the protesters entered the red zone, and the government pledged restraint.  – SAMAA
