Demonstrators leaving Lahore on Wednesday reached Pakistan’s capital the next day, insisting that the previous elections in 2018 were not legitimate.
The elections of July 25 were fraud elections. They neither accept the results nor the government that came into power after those elections. The people gave this Islamabad one year but now we cannot give them any more time.
Hardline Islamist cleric Maulana Fazlur Rehman has presented Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan with a two-day ultimatum, demanding his resignation and threatening continued demonstrations against the Khan government.
Addressing a crowd of anti-government protesters in Islamabad on Friday – many from the Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam Party – Rehman called Khan a traitor and a puppet.
Khan himself appears to have kept a cool head over the protests so far, vowing to keep the demonstrators supplied with food as long as they remained in the capital to express their discontent peacefully.
