New Delhi: Defense Minister Khawaja Asif said on Wednesday that Pakistan is considering banning Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), the political party of former Prime Minister Imran Khan. The move comes amid days of political instability in Pakistan due to the arrest of Imran Khan on May 9 on corruption charges before being released on court-ordered bail.
Embarrassed in his own country, Imran Khan has alleged that the corruption charges are fabricated. Imran is embroiled in a confrontation with the powerful army. Asif told reporters, “Banning PTI is under consideration. PTI has attacked the state’s base, which has never happened before. This cannot be tolerated.

Imran Khan’s close and trusted leader is bidding goodbye to his party. Those who quit PTI include the names of five big leaders including Shireen Mazari, who was the Human Rights Minister in his cabinet. Former Human Rights Minister Shireen Mazari announced her retirement from politics on Tuesday, saying goodbye to the party. Here, Imran Khan has alleged that the government is using pressure tactics to destroy his political party. It is believed that these leaders are taking these steps to avoid the action of the Army Act after the May 9 incident.
Let us tell you that after the arrest of Imran Khan, deadly protests took place across the country. Army installations were attacked and state buildings were set on fire.
