Supporters of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) gathered to the streets in large numbers in all major and minor towns to demonstrate their support for their leader and former Prime Minister Imran Khan. Following Khan’s call for peaceful protests, party members showed up.

Khan warned in a speech to the country the day after he was ousted from power that he will not tolerate the establishment of a “foreign administration” in Pakistan and that if that happened, he will seek public support.

“We are not a tissue-paper nation,” Khan remarked during a live transmission, insisting that Pakistan does not want unilateral relations with any country.

Khan had earlier in the day, on April 10, tweeted that today was the start of a “freedom battle” against a “foreign regime-change conspiracy.” “It is always the people who safeguarded their own sovereignty and democracy,” he stated in an attempt to rally his supporters.

The locations for the protests were announced by PTI hours before their supporters took to the streets.

Islamabad

From Zero Point, the capital’s protests began. Flags were waved and slogans in support of the former prime minister were chanted.

Fawad Chaudhry, the former Information Minister, praised PTI supporters for attending the demonstration in Rawalpindi.

Lahore

Hammad Azhar, a PTI politician in Lahore, shared a video of a gathering leaving his NA-126 constituency for Liberty Chowk.

Peshawar

A large crowd of demonstrators, including women and children, gathered at the Peshawar Press Club to show their support for the deposed prime minister.

Karachi

A demonstration was staged on Rashid Minhas Road in Karachi, with a huge number of supporters in attendance, including women and children.

Overseas Pakistanis have also expressed their support for Khan.

Khan expresses gratitude to protesters for their “wonderful outpouring of solidarity.”
In a tweet just before midnight, Imran congratulated his fans.

“Thank you to all Pakistanis for their incredible outpouring of support and emotions in protesting against the US-backed regime change aided by local Mir Jafars to usher in a coterie of pliable crooks all out on bail,” he wrote.
