Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi Tuesday told the Lower House that the Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) government was not responsible for current financial crisis as Pakistan’s debt soared to Rs30,000 billion during Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) and Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) governments in the last 10 years.

Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday fully backed the Supreme Court’s decision in the Asia Bibi case, warning protesters against clashing with the State.

The prime minister’s address came after a three-judge bench acquitted and ordered the release of Asia Bibi, a Christian woman who was earlier sentenced to death on blasphemy charges.

“I’m here only because a Supreme Court verdict was announced today. The way a small section reacted to it and the language that they used, I am forced to address you,” Khan said.
