The recently reported incident of Imran Khan breaching the sanctity of police station and getting the political workers released is perhaps the most unfortunate event of the ongoing political agitation. Ironically there is nothing new in ‘Naya Pakistan’. The leader of a political party should never encourage his followers to disrespect the law. His call for ‘civil disobedience’ and other such factors are defaming an icon. Imran Khan should either explain his actions or not commit any illegal acts. It is hoped that sanity will prevail, and political leaders will realise that they should not risk breaking the civic structure of the country.
