An FIR including sections on criminal conspiracy and intimidation has been registered against PML-N leader Javed Latif. The complaint was filed by a resident of Lahore's Township, identified as Muhammad Jameel Saleem, at the area's police station on March 20 at 8am. "On March 12 at 10pm, Latif came on SAMAA TV show Newsbeat and spoke against the state institutions and tried to harbour the crimes committed by PML-N leaders Nawaz Sharif and Maryam Nawaz," the FIR read. “It is the matter of a leader’s life,” the politician told SAMAA TV’s Paras Jahanzaib on her show. “I am saying it beforehand when Benazir Bhutto realized the threats to her life, she took names and after that the tragedy took place." If something happens to the PML-N vice-president, we will not chant the Pakistan Khappay slogan, he continued. The complainant said that Latif's statements sowed the seeds of hatred between PPP and PML-N workers. "The MNA has violated the national and constitutional laws by passing these statements against the state and government insitutions." The politician has been charged under sections 120B [Punishment of criminal conspiracy], 153A [Promoting enmity between different groups], 505(1)B [Statements conducing to public mischief], and 506 [Punishment for criminal intimidation] of the Pakistan Penal Code.
