ISLAMABAD: Sheikh Rashid Ahmed is charged with another FIR on Friday for uttering profanities and using immoral remarks against foreign minister Bilawal Bhutto Zardari. The case was lodged against Rashid by Karachi’s Mochko police on the complaint of PPP leader.

In the FIR, complainant Khuda Bux, a senior vice president of the PPP said that he was at his party’s office on Suparco Road in Mowach Goth on Feb 2 at around 4:30pm, when he saw Rashid using “extremely filthy and immoral language” against Bilawal Bhutto while talking to the media outside Islamabad’s Polyclinic Hospital.

The Awami Muslim League (AML) chief and PTI ally was earlier arrested on Thursday in connection with remarks he made against former president Asif Ali Zardari.

The first information report (FIR) was registered at Islamabad’s Aabpara Police Station under sections 120-B (criminal conspiracy), 153A (promoting enmity between different groups, etc) and 505 (statements conducing to public mischief) of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) in connection with the remarks he made against Zardari. 

The complaint was filed by Raja Inayatur Rehman, the vice president of PPP Rawalpindi Division, wherein he said that the AML chief, in a television interview on Jan 27, alleged that Zardari got the assistance of some terrorists to plan former prime minister Imran Khan’s murder.

The complainant alleged that Rashid’s remarks had “provoked thousands of workers of the PPP and a large number of people came on to the road” who were then brought under control by him and other local party leaders with “great difficulty”.

Sheikh Rashid, chief of AML, had made a conspiracy to create a law and order situation, and trigger clashes and bloodshed. Therefore, legal action should be taken against him,” the FIR said.

Subsequently, Islamabad court had granted the police two-day physical remand of the AML leader.
