Saad terms Safdar’s arrest as “revenge”


Islamabad, Oct. 9 (TNS): PML-N senior leader Khawaja Saad Rafique on Monday strongly condemned the arrest of Muhammad Safdar, saying it was “revenge in the name of accountability and justice.”

Rafique in a tweet said Safdar was a “true, resolute and unswerving soldier of democracy” and “Sadiq and Ameen”, warning that those who made his arrest must consider their way of actions.

The minister said that “mafias and relatives of terrorists” neither get arrested nor appear before the courts.

“We fought for freedom and dignity of judiciary yet we are being targeted with injustice,” Rafique lamented.

He further said that PML-N would not resist the detention, adding that “we will emerge victorious by the grace of God”.
