9th May Incident

It would be in the national interest, if the clean and crystal inquiry should be started about the 9th May incident, which is a stain on our forehead. Moreover, people involved through social media should also be trialled for spreading terror and inciting people for abetting mutiny and to attack military installations across the country on the same day right after the PTI chief Imran Khan’s arrest. The day violent protests erupted. During the protest, a colossal loss has been reported as such military installations including the Lahore corps commander’s residence and state properties were damaged across Pakistan.

Similarly, such tweets, WhatsApp groups and other social media activists should be arrested as they were inciting and favouring people to attack military installations, spread terrorism and create chaos in the country.

As a result a development that sparked countrywide protests amid incidents of vandalism and violence.

It serves as a stark reminder that the authorities concerned to take stringent steps to bring the arsonists, who attacked the civil and military installations to justice through trial under relevant laws, including the Pakistan Army Act and Official Secrets Act.
