Imran Ismail barred from entering from Mazar-e-Quaid

KARACHI: Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf’s (PTI) governor-designate Sindh Imran Ismail was denied entry to Quaid’s mausoleum this morning, for carrying an excessive number of people in his ‘entourage’.

Apparently displeased with the mausoleum’s administration, Ismail tweeted: “We were denied access to Mazar e Quaid today for Fatiha, while PPP delegation led by CM to be was allowed & accompanied by Commissioner khi. With full CM Protocol.”

His tweet ended with a message in Urdu: “Abhi to deewar giranay ki baat ki hai” (we just talked about demolishing the wall(s)”. He made this statement in reference to recently-debated remarks of Imran Khan in which he had said to ‘bulldoze walls of governor houses in Pakistan to make them public spaces.’

Dignitaries and important figures pay visits to Mazar-e-Quaid in Karachi on occasions like Independence Day and Pakistan Day (March 23) to pay homage to the founding father of the country.
