Last week, Javed Hashmi, while talking to media, had said that he would not ask for a bail if he is arrested, and he would write a book in jail. “I know how to fight this war. I will stage my protest in front of the Parliament and the GHQ.”
He further said, “This is a smaller jail, but outside, there’s a bigger jail. I don’t want any facilities during my imprisonment as I have spent nine years behind bars.” He went on to add that in the past, he was not given food and was beaten in the jail.
On July 14, Multan police had registered a case against the veteran politician for criticising the state institutions, with a special team formed to arrest the PML-N leader. Responding on the development, Hashmi had said that he had done ‘nothing wrong’ by criticising the state institutions.
