Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif has said that May 9 was the darkest day in the history of Pakistan and the nation will not forget the culprits who desecrated the memorials of national heroes, reported 24News HD TV channel.

While sharing his special message after the completion of one year of May 9 violence, PM Shehbaz said the nation has rejected the culprits who ignited violence and targeted security installations across the country.

Prime Minister said May 9 culprits created a law and order situation in the country for their vested interests. PM pledged that no one can stop the country from making progress. He promised that government will take all steps to make the future of the nation bright. Shehbaz said May 9 has drawn a line between the two ways of politics ie, one working for the safety and security of the state while another attacking the state for dirty politics.

PM Shehbaz said one school of thought comprised the great sons of the nation, their great families, patriotic people who shed blood for the motherland.

While on the other hand, there were violent characters setting the countries security installations who have no respect for state institutions, constitution and law of the land.

It is pertinent to mention that violent protests broke out in many parts of the country on May 9, 2023 after PTI founder Imran Khan was briefly arrested on graft allegations.

Enraged PTI supporters attacked government buildings and military installations, including the official residence of a serving senior army official as they blamed the army for their leader’s arrest.

After initially claiming the attack was in response to his detention, Khan claimed his supporters had largely remained peaceful and the violence was pre-planned and perpetuated by Pakistan’s intelligence agencies in their bid to clamp down on his Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party.
