Sharif while responding to a question, termed the May 9 riots, triggered by the arrest of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) Chairman Imran Khan in a graft case, a conspiracy against Pakistan.

The premier while calling the PTI chairman the riots’ “mastermind”, said the violence was aimed at toppling the military leadership and initiating a civil war in the country. The PM clarified that he was making the revelations on the basis of information.

PTI chief Imran Khan ousted via a no-trust move in April last year, was arrested in a graft case, triggering violent protests, during which his party’s supporters ransacked public and military properties.

Shehbaz Sharif said other than PTI workers, a group of politicians, some military men and their families were involved in the events of May 9, dubbed “Black Day” by the military.

“Those involved in the May 9 incidents wanted to overthrow the military leadership,” the prime minister said.

PM Shehbaz mentioned that the planners wanted “anarchy” and “civil war” in the country.
