The potential for violence and disorder underscores the need for the government to take a measured approach. This is the requirement to deal with the current situation of the country.
The authorities should engage with Imran Khan to address their grievances and find a peaceful resolution to any conflicts or disagreements.
Similarly, citizens must express their dissent peacefully and respectfully. By working together and engaging in constructive dialogue, the government and citizens can find a way forward that promotes stability, security, and prosperity for all.
