Everyone have condemned the events of May 9, I want to go into detail that such incidents are dangerous for the country because military installations were attacked, he stated.

Asad continued that the events of May 9 are condemnable and should be transparently investigated that nation could trust.

Vigorous action should be taken against those responsible, innocent people should be released as soon as possible, the former minister stated.

He said: “Army is not the name of two or three generals, it consists of millions of people who put their lives on the line to protect us”.

My three generations have been related to military and I'm proud of it, Umar continued.

There was a lot of time to ponder in jail, the higher judiciary is divided and the whole country is watching that decisions made by the judiciary are not implemented.

In response to a question, he said: “I have only resigned from the party post, there is no pressure on me, and I left the post with my own free will”.
