Earlier, PML-N leader Maryam Nawaz also announced that City court has granted bail to Captain (r) Safdar in the case of desecration of Quaid-e-Azam’s mausoleum.

On Monday morning, Police produced Captain (r) Safdar before Karachi’s city court after he was arrested for violating the sanctity of the Quaid’s mausoleum.

Police raided a private hotel in Karachi early morning and detained Captain Safdar. He was produced before the court in an armored vehicle.

Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) vice-president and wife of Muhammad Safdar, Maryman Nawaz took to Twitter and said, “Police broke my room door at the hotel I was staying at in Karachi and arrested Capt. Safdar.”

“I was in the room, sleeping, when they barged in,” Maryam Nawaz said.

Let it be known that Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) leaders had filed a complaint against Maryam Nawaz and Captain (retd) Safdar among 200 PML-N workers at the Brigade Police Station in Karachi for chanting slogans at the Mazar-e-Quaid.

According to the FIR, the case had been registered on Section 6 (convening of meetings or processions at the mausoleum), Section 8 (entry into mausoleum with weapon) and Section 10 (penalty for contravention of provisions) of The Quaid-i-Azam’s Mazar (Protection and Maintenance) Ordinance, 1971.
