Pak responsible for ongoing situation in Islamabad, claims Naqvi

Terming the situation prevalent in Pakistan as internal, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi today reminded that the neighbouring nation was reaping the ills of the wrong policy’s which it had adopted earlier against others. “This is Pakistan’s internal matter and my commenting on it would not be fine. Definitely, the Pakistani establishment will have to reap what it has sowed. The way they gave support and shelter to anarchy, lawlessness, terrorism in Pakistan has been a cause of concern not just for them but for the whole world. Being our neighbor, we wish that peace remain in that country so that it moves in the right direction,” he said. The internal turmoil within Pakistan is refusing to abate even as the confrontation between protesters and security forces led to the death of two people and injured over 450 others. Pakistani police has reportedly fired tear gas and rubber bullets at thousands of protesters who were attempting to march toward Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif”s house in Islamabad. A crowd of about 25,000 people led by Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) chairman Imran Khan and Pakistan Awami Tehreek (PAT) chief Tahirul Qadri made its way to Sharif”s house late Saturday after talks with the government mediated by the Pakistani military failed, according to reports. The police reportedly fired tear gas and rubber bullets at thousands of protesters, who were attempting to march towards Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif”s residence in Islamabad. The clashes between the police and the protesters continued on Sunday as the cops baton-charged the crowd in an attempt to disperse them.
