Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) supporters are expected to hold demonstrations in Islamabad and Lahore on Wednesday, October 10, to demand the release of detained PML-N leader Shehbaz Sharif. Protesters reportedly plan to rally outside the National Assembly of Pakistan in Islamabad and the Punjab Assembly in Lahore. Related protests are possible in the coming days, particularly in Lahore, Islamabad, and other urban centers.
Shehbaz Sharif, the younger brother of ousted PM Nawaz Sharif, was arrested on corruption charges on Friday, October 5. The Sharif family alleges that the charges are false and politically motivated.
Individuals in Pakistan are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all demonstrations and protests, remain vigilant for signs of civil unrest, and adhere to instructions by local authorities.
