Shah Mahmood Qureshi refuses to leave PTI, re-arrested outside Adiala Jail

  • PTI leader Musarrat Jamshed Cheema was also re-arrested upon her release
Published May 23, 2023

Vice-chairman Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Shah Mahmood Qureshi was re-arrested on Tuesday soon after being released from the Adiala Jail, Aaj News reported.

Confirming his arrest, the PTI Twitter handle said Qureshi was arrested after he refused to leave the party.

“I am with the party, I will stay with the party,” the statement quoted him as saying.

Qureshi was among the top PTI leaders arrested from Islamabad within 24 hours of the outbreak of violent protests following former prime minister Imran Khan’s arrest as the government tightened the noose around the party.

In major blow, Shireen Mazari, Fayyazul Hassan Chohan quit PTI

He was taken into custody in the early hours of May 11 after the police raided Gilgit-Baltistan House in Islamabad under Section 3 (3MPO).

Qureshi’s release had been ordered by the Islamabad High Court (IHC) after he agreed to give an undertaking that he would not participate in violent protests.

Meanwhile, the PTI leader Musarrat Jamshed Cheema has also been re-arrested upon her release. PTI condemned her arrest and termed it an example of the government’s “fascism”.

“These practices must be stopped immediately, court’s decisions must be respected now,” the party said.

Reacting to the development, PTI chief Imran Khan condemned the re-arrest of the party’s Vice Chairman Shah Mehmood Qureshi, and vowed that he would resist till his last breath.

“We are now being governed by the law of the jungle, might is right and the only thing standing in its way is our judiciary,” he wrote.

“The constitution is being brazenly violated along with SC rulings. Police being used to crush PTI, our leaders forced to quit the party.”

“The constitution is being brazenly violated along with SC (Supreme Court) rulings. Police are being used to crush PTI, our leaders forced to quit the party,” he further said in a tweet, adding that “giving into this cruelty means the death of our nation”.

Pakistan has failed to become a normal country. It is basically a hybrid regime forever. There have been, and will not be free elections. IK is the most popular leader, and he will win the elections. But democracy does not exist in Pakistan any more in the future.

Now we see why Establishment want elections in October - not because they want to turn the economy around by then, but because they want to crush PTI by then to create an unfair election.

So Judge says that you give an undertaking that you will not burn and destroy Govt and private property again, and now you are free to go! I think every single criminal will be more than happy to give this undertaking that he will not kill, rape, rob again, if given chance. PTI sympathetic judges are making a mockery of justice. When judges are taking sides, then only power decides outcome.
