PM Imran orders probe in Quetta mosque blast

ISLAMABAD: Prime Minister Imran Khan has reacted to the Supreme Court decision to grant a six-month conditional approval for Army Chief Gen Qamar Javed Bajwa to stay in his office, saying the verdict must be “a great disappointment to those who expected the country to be destabilised by a clash of institutions”.
Taking to Twitter, the premier said the fact that a clash of institutions was averted “must be of special disappointment to our external enemies and mafias within – Mafias who have stashed their loot abroad and seek to protect this loot by destabilising the country”.
In another tweet, Prime Minister said 23 years ago, the PTI was the first political party to advocate an independent judiciary and the rule of law. In addition, he said the PTI was at the forefront of the Movement for Independence of the Judiciary in 2007 and he was “jailed for it”.
“Also, for the record, I have the greatest respect for CJ [Chief Justice Asif Saeed] Khosa, one of the greatest Jurists produced by Pakistan,” the prime minister wrote.
