Many celebrities took to the streets in support of ousted former Prime Minister Imran Khan at the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Jalsa in Karachi on Saturday.
PTI Chairman Imran Khan on Saturday evening claimed that the “imported” government was trying to push his party out of the political arena through the foreign funding case. Therefore, for the sake of fairness, the court cases against PPP, PTI, and PML-N must be heard together.
Addressing a massive public gathering at Karachi’s Bagh-e-Jinnah, the former prime minister thanked the people of the metropolis for coming out of their houses to show support for him. According to him, the purpose of his visit to Karachi was not in the interests of the PTI but was for the sake of Pakistan and the future of its children.
Khan also shared that since a “strong and powerful” Pakistani community lived in the United States, he believed in establishing congenial relations with all countries.
The Sinf e Aahan actor Syra Yousuf, Feroze Khan, Mariyam Nafees, as well as couple Sarwat Gillani and Fahad Mirza were among the many actors spotted at the mega event.
