Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief Imran Khan on Sunday morning tweeted that the nation was still suffering from the aftermath of Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) founder Zulfikar Ali Bhutto’s execution which happened in 1979.

Imran said this in relation to former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi, who has been sentenced to death.

“The sentencing of deposed president Mohamed Morsi to death bodes ill for the Egyptian people and for Egyptian democracy,” Imran tweeted.

On Saturday, an Egyptian court sentenced deposed president Mohamed Morsi and more than 100 other defendants to death on Saturday over jail breaks during the 2011 uprising.
