Former President and chief of All Pakistan Muslim League (APML), Pervez Musharraf, has strongly condemned the arrests of party workers in Lahore. Musharraf dubbed the arrests of Abdullah Sardar and Mobashar Ahmad by the Punjab government as undemocratic and a violation of the constitutional rights of the individuals. According to APML spokesperson, the workers of the APML were staging a peaceful display of Musharrafs visuals and placards at Kalma Chowk when the law enforcement agencies arrested the two party workers. APML leadership denounced the arrests and expressed their surprise at the gross violations of democratic rights of the people of Pakistan. Musharraf demanded that the workers be released with immediate effect to avoid any further aspersions being cast on the political integrity of the Punjab government.
