London: PTI workers protest outside Nawaz Sharif’s residence

Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) supporters have been protesting every Sunday for the past three weeks outside Nawaz Sharif’s house at Avon field Flats in London against the removal of former Prime Minister Imran Khan through a no-confidence movement earlier this month.

According to the media reports, videos shared on social media showed hundreds of protesters, including women and children, gathering at the scene.

Protesters chanted slogans such as “A thief is a thief, a thief is a thief”, “We will carry freedom”, “America’s friend is a traitor”.

Also in Hyde Park, a protester was seen slapping sandals on pictures of PTI opponents and PML-N members including Jahangir Tareen, Aleem Khan, Rana Sanaullah and Tariq Bashir Cheema.

Earlier, on April 10, London-based Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) and Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) workers clashed outside the residence of former prime minister and PML-N chief Nawaz Sharif.

One group celebrated the removal of PTI Chairman Imran Khan from the post of Prime Minister while the other group was seen protesting.

The two groups chanted slogans against each other’s leaders, with a heavy police presence at the scene.

Imran Khan’s London spokesman Sahibzada Jahangir had sent a video message to party workers to gather in the park to protest against ‘alleged US foreign intervention in Pakistan’ and then to protest outside the US embassy.

The message circulating in PTI’s WhatsApp groups said the protest was aimed at “changing the government” and raising the voice against the Supreme Court’s decision to hold fair elections through electronic voting machines and to help Pakistanis abroad to get the right to vote.

During the PTI protests, both the speaker and the protesters denounced the US role in removing Imran Khan, with many participants saying that they believed that Imran Khan had spoken of “threatening posts” and conspiracies.

That is the reality. Some of Imran Khan’s supporters criticized the military establishment and blamed them for the removal of the prime minister.
