A photo of former prime minister Imran Khan taken during his visit to Lahore on Sunday has gone viral, drawing criticism from netizens.

The PTI chairman was in the provincial capital for a day of meetings, including one with Punjab Chief Minister Pervez Elahi and former federal minister Moonis Elahi at the former’s office.

The photo of the meeting, in which the PTI chairman was sitting on the chief minister’s seat, quickly went viral, sparking a social media storm, with many questioning his authority to sit on the provincial chief executive’s seat.

Insider information

According to senior anchorperson Hamid Mir, “a lot of people are criticising Imran Khan for sitting on the chief minister’s seat, but they are unaware of the details as to what happened there.”

Mir stated that this does not happen; no one does this on his own.

Mir added that when Imran Khan visited the CM Punjab office to congratulate Pervez Elahi on his victory, he was photographed sitting on the CM’s seat while meeting the PML-Q leader.

“When Pervez Elahi arrived at his office, he asked Imran Khan to sit there, but the PTI chairman told him that it was his seat.” Moonis Elahi responded, “We got this because of you [Imran Khan], so you sit there.”

According to the veteran journalist, the father and son duo forced Imran Khan to sit in the chief minister’s chair.

“I believe Imran Khan should have been cautious and should have avoided the situation despite their insistence.”

Backlash on social media

Many social media users, journalists, and politicians condemned the PTI chairman’s “ill-mannered” move.

Imran Khan, the founder of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI), has been placed in 10-day physical remand by the anti-terrorism court of Lahore. This action is in relation to 12 charges from May 9.

The remand is related to several cases filed against the PTI founder at different police stations, including Sarwar Road, Gulberg, Race Course, Shadman, Mughalpura, and Model Town.

Imran Khan was presented via a video link due to the prosecutor’s claim of ‘security concerns’ as the reason for not physically bringing him to the location.

During the court proceedings, the PTI founder presented his argument to the judge, asserting that his objective was to engage in nonviolent protest, notwithstanding the allegations made against him.

He stressed his appeal for a judicial investigation into the events of May 9 and urged the Chief Justice of Pakistan to intervene.

The PTI founder firmly stated that he has never encouraged or provoked violence throughout his 28-year career, completely denying any participation in the disturbances that occurred on May 9th. He highlighted inconsistencies in the CCTV footage and the handling of his requests.

Advocate Azhar Siddique, who is representing the PTI founder, presented arguments in favor of his client’s innocence, emphasizing the absence of evidence against him throughout Pakistan’s 72-year history.

The public prosecutor cited a video posted by the PTI founder on May 9, 2023, which is currently being examined for authentication.

Judge Khalid Arshad Malik promised to record the arguments and render decisions based on the legal merits of the case. Nevertheless, he expressed reservations over the PTI founder’s nonattendance in court, citing security justifications offered by the prosecution.
