JN: ‘extremist elements’ trying to disrupt his campaign

News by:

Lawyer and activist Jibran Nasir, who is contesting general election as an independent candidate from PS-111 and NA-247 in Karachi, held a press conference on Wednesday to address what he termed the “incidents of violence” against his supporters and campaign volunteers.
The presser, that was broadcast live on Facebook, was held a day after a handful of men reportedly interrupted a corner meeting held by Nasir in Delhi Colony where they told him to explain to them his religious views and accused him of blasphemy.
Nasir claimed that some “extremist elements” wanted to hijack his campaign by inciting hatred among people “because they are scared of a candidate who wanted to highlight the actual problems and issues being faced by the public”.
