Terming former prime minister Imran Khan a ‘trouble-maker’, PML-N Vice President Maryam Nawaz has said that stopping the unrest created by PTI is equivalent to ‘jihad’.

"Imran Khan is spreading unrest and to stop the same is equivalent to waging a jihad," she said while addressing the party's social media users in Swat.

Mocking the PTI chairman, Maryam said, "The number that Imran is trying to dial to contact the establishment has changed."

The PML-N leader went on to add that Imran had betrayed everyone who had placed their trust in him.

Commenting on a recent statement by the K-P chief minister about the use of force, she questioned if he wanted to launch an armed struggle against the state.

"Imran is more dangerous than terrorists because his is under the guise of a political leader," the PML-N VP remarked.

Maryam also asked national institutions if a "terrorist like him" would continue to remain scot-free, one who is admitting to his ‘act of terrorism’.

Concluding her address, she said her party would launch a new Radd-ul-Fasaad operation against him [Imran].

At the weekend, Imran, while addressing a public gathering, had said that 220 million people were being enslaved by the incumbent ‘imported rulers’. “Remember, the nation is not afraid of tear gas. This is a real liberation movement … jihad.”

In the same address, he asked his supporters to prepare for the phase II of the “Haqeeqi Azadi March” against those “imposed on the nation through the US conspiracy.”

Last week, the PTI chief gave the PML-N government an ultimatum to either announce a schedule for early elections or face the ‘wrath of the public’ in the form of another long march on Islamabad.
