Police on Monday arrested former army general Lieutenant General (retired) Amjad Shoaib on allegations of engagement in “hate speech” and provoking government employees against the administration. Amjad Shoaib was arrested from his residence by the Islamabad police under sections 153A (promoting enmity between different groups) and 505 (statements conducing to public mischief) of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC).
Shoaib is accused of provoking state employees during a television talk show last week in which he suggested Khan, who has long been agitating against the government, to “work out his strategy” as the ex-premier’s ‘fill prisons’ campaign was not achieving the desired results.
The retired army man said Khan should ask government employees to stop showing up at work, which according to him would force the government to think whether it was actually governing the country or not.
