  • FIA sources say anchorperson was arrested from Lahore’s Allama Iqbal International Airport.
  • Imran Riaz Khan will be presented in court today.
  • PTI condemns arrest of Imran Riaz. 

Anchorperson Imran Riaz Khan has been arrested by the Federal investigation Agency (FIA) for his controversial statements, sources told Geo News.

FIA officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said that the anchorperson was arrested from Lahore’s Allama Iqbal International Airport as he was leaving for the United Arab Emirates.

The sources said that Riaz will be presented in court today.

The anchorperson was arrested on the same day PTI ally Sheikh Rashid Ahmed was nabbed by the Islamabad Police. 

Reacting to the arrests, PTI leader Asad Umar claimed that terrorists are roaming free while Sheikh Rashid Ahmed and Imran Riaz are behind the bars. 

This is not the first time that the FIA has stopped the anchorperson from boarding his flight.

In July 2022, authorities offloaded Riaz from a Dubai-bound flight.

Back then, the immigration sources had shared that the anchorperson — who was booked in several cases including sedition — was offloaded as his name was on the black list.

The government on Friday decided to engage with its ally, the Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP), in an attempt to lessen the strain brought on by the ruling of the supreme court to award reserved seats to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) and the negative reaction it received after declaring the PTI was banned.

Specifics state that President Asif Ali Zardari will also be present at the consultative meeting with the leaders of the Pakistan Muslim League Nawaz (PML-N) on the subject.

Participants in the meeting, which would see the Attorney General brief them on the various legal elements of the cases, included PML-N leaders Ishaq Dar, Azam Tarar, Atta Tarar, Irfan Qadir, Ahad Cheema, and Sardar Ayaz Sadiq.

Ayyar Bokhari, Sherry Rehman, and Farooq H. Naek would be attending the meeting on behalf of the PPP.

The PML-N leaders, according to sources, would also have faith in the PPP leadership when it came to using Article 6 to remove three of the PTI’s most important leaders.

Amid escalating tensions, Faisal Vawda forecasts the political demise of the PTI.

Political unrest is likely to approach, as Faisal Vawda noted that PTI will confront formidable obstacles.

Pakistan cannot support any anarchist party. According to Vawda, PTI must change into PTI-P in the same way as MQM becomes MQM-P.

In his critique of the PTI’s present political approach, he implied that the organization’s latest moves and catchphrases are the result of trust established by legal rulings. According to Vawda, PTI is now in a precarious position because these activities have put them over the constitutional line.

“PTI has been shouting anti-institutional slogans ten times ahead of the court order; they should be prepared for the bulldozer now,” Vawda remarked.

Furthermore, according to Vawda, it is improbable that PTI’s founder will be released from prison. Instead, PTI’s future will be determined by government policies and internal calculations.

He said that the intelligence to overthrow the government is within the Pakistan Democratic Movement II (PDM-2).

Furthermore, the senator charged that the government was misrepresenting PTI and the institutions and deliberately causing uncertainty.

He predicted that the political atmosphere would intensify and that the administration might not abide by the rulings of the Supreme Court, contributing to the situation’s complexity.
