Pakistan Peoples Party (PPP) Chairman Bilawal Bhutto-Zardari has warned the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) of consequences if the “non-serious party” refuses to tender an apology over May 9 riots.

“No one should be permitted to commit terrorism,” Bilawal said while speaking on the floor of the National Assembly on Wednesday, adding: “The opposition leadership committed terrorism on May 9 by disrespecting the monuments of martyrs who sacrificed their lives for the country.”

Amid the opposition’s lawmakers sloganeering, the former foreign minister took a dig at the PTI-backed Sunni Ittehad Council (SIC) lawmakers. 

The politico urged the opposition party to avoid practising “double standards” in politics.

He described the opposition members of the Imran Khan-founded party as “non-political and non-serious”, lacking interest in the country’s politics. He claimed that their leader was “crying” in jail for release.

Bilawal Bhutto said that PPP has been struggling to strengthen democratic institutions for three generations and this struggle for Pakistan would continue.
