KARACHI: Senior actor Khalid Anam has demanded legal action against Captain (retd), Safdar, for desecrating the Mazar-e-Quaid in Karachi.
He took to Twitter and expressed that he was unhappy by the desecration of Mazar-e-Quaid by PML-N. He was very angry at the slogan mongering by Captain Safdar. “Political leaders should pray at the mausoleum, rather than chant party slogans,” Anam said.

The actor added that Quaid-e-Azam was the father of the nation. One should not disrespect their father like this. He asked law enforcement authorities to take strict action against the PML-N workers.
Many social media users also agreed with the views of Anam. They also said that law enforcement agencies should take strict action against Safdar.
Capt (R) Safdar had slogan-mongered at Mazar-e-Quaid during his visit to Karachi with his wife Maryam Nawaz on Sunday. He was chanting the PML-N slogan “Vote ko izzat do (respect the vote)”. Safdar also urged people to join him.
He is accused of violating the law protecting the sanctity of the mausoleum. A case was filed at Karachi’s Brigade Police Station against PML-N leaders, including Safdar and Maryam, for violating the sanctity of the Mazar. He was released later at night.
