In Karachi, the capital of Sindh province of Pakistan, rumors of a 'civil war' broke out following the circumstances surrounding the arrest of Mohammad Safdar, son-in-law of former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif. In fact, the Sindh Police has tweeted and alleged that the soldiers of Pakistan Rangers kidnapped the Sindh Police Chief to issue the order for the arrest of Safdar. After these allegations, Pakistan Army Chief Qamar Javed Bajwa has ordered an inquiry into the whole matter.
Meanwhile, The International Herald reported on Twitter that 'there was also a shootout between the Sindh police and the Pakistan Army during which the Karachi police officers died. After this firing there has been 'civil war'. However, Pakistan's leading newspaper Dawn has not given any such news.
The Pakistan Democratic Movement (PDM), a grand alliance of 11 opposition parties, witnessed a massive rally on 18 October in Karachi, the capital of Sindh province of Pakistan. Maryam Nawaz called Prime Minister Imran Khan a 'coward and a puppet' at the rally and described him as hiding behind the army. Earlier in the public meeting held in Gujranwala, Nawaz Sharif also attacked the army and Imran Khan fiercely.
