Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa on Wednesday called on Prime Minister Imran Khan at PM House in Islamabad.
During the meeting, matters pertaining to country’s security situation in wake of protests following the Supreme Court’s verdict in Asia Bibi case came under discussion during the meeting.
The meeting was held after PM Imran addressed the nation hitting out at protesters and appealed for calm after agitating protesters called for the country s Supreme Court justices to be murdered for overturning the conviction of a Christian woman facing execution for blasphemy.
Khan, who took to the nation s airwaves several hours after the court ordered the acquittal of Asia Bibi, delivered a forceful call for Pakistanis to respect the verdict which sparked protests across the country.
“They are inciting you for their own political gain, you should not get trapped by them for the sake of the country, they are doing no service to Islam,” Khan said.
“We will protect people s properties and lives, we will not allow any sabotage, we will not allow any traffic to be stopped,” he added.
