The government is determined that no one should be allowed to take the law into their hands and cause irreparable damage to the state of Pakistan. I assure you that every attempt to weaken the constitutionally elected government will fail.  Addressing President Arif Alvi, Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif further said that 'this behavior of yours is not in accordance with the constitutional role of the President, but the letter has one-sided, anti-government views which you express openly.

Even in the matter of taking my oath as Prime Minister under Article 91 clause five, you have failed to fulfill your constitutional duty, on many occasions you have been actively working against the elected constitutional government.      Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif said in the letter to the President of Pakistan that he tried his best to establish a good working relationship with you. The language and tone you used in your letter compelled me to answer you. Your reference to human rights violations refers to politicians and activists of one party. Under Article 10A and IV of the Constitution, the requisite protection of the Constitution and the law is given to all these persons. The law enforcement agencies have strictly followed the requisite rules of law enforcement and public order for state administration.'  The Prime Minister wrote: "The President of Pakistan has completely forgotten attacks on law enforcement agencies due to party affiliation, vandalism of private and commercial property, efforts to create chaos. President PTI has made the country an economic default." Ignored the efforts to bring it to the side. Due to PTI, Pakistan's international reputation regarding the constitution, human rights and the future of democracy has been damaged. Such militancy by a political party against a court order has never been seen before.'

This freedom is allowed to be used within the limits of the Constitution and the law. When PTI was in power, did you ever raise your voice about it?" did not I draw your attention to Human Rights Watch's annual World Report 2022.  He added that 'PTI was in power at that time.

The report contains all the details of harassment, imprisonment and targeting of journalists, civil society and political opponents. The National Human Rights Commission was suspended during the PTI government. But there is an indictment, there is a record of PTI government's violations in several reports of international human rights organizations.  He added: 'PTI used NAB to wipe out political opponents during its tenure. Alas, as President of Pakistan, you never once raised your voice on any of these incidents. You as the president could have asked the government of that time about these violations of human rights, constitution and law.'
